I just dont understand what Asperger's IS. Okay...my three year old son has it (I SERIOUSLY don't understand how the Dr can tell so early, but he has). I understand that we can not go out in public, unless NO-ONE is there. He can NOT be around people in the store,park, ANYWHERE. He doesn't talk much, he has the speech of a one year old, and has major tantrums, is VERY sensitive to things (among many other little quirks). I am trying to do things his way(but is HARD since I also have a 2 yr old), but I just dont understand what is "wrong with him", as the lady at Wal-Mart said. What exactly is ASD? How can I explain it to ppl when he has a meltdown and starts breaking things and hitting? How is he going to cope at school? He cant even handle being at the libray for playdates. Any thoughts, hints, ANYTHING is helpful.
