It been hitting my hubby and i at every angle this last mth. My 7yo and 8yo sons r waiting for appointments for assessments for aspergers.. Our 7yo we have always since age 2 had concerns. He gets stuck on things like hes a stuck record. At the moment hes talking like hes in a computer game, he stops playing this way for dinner and for him 2 do that he presses a button in the air and says " paused" then comes to eat. He flaps his arms too. so we thought we would ask if all this is ok, well hes refured, there r heaps more going on with him that i cant say on here, it will b to long to read. Our 8yo his teacher had started the worries, he cant understand backwards thinking, eg days of week backwards or subtraction, hes also been pan and brushing the classroom carpet. At home he has a short temper and even gets worse when he doesn't understand something. Im not concerned to much myself, but im worried hes been ova looked by me as my 7yo is soo demanding!
Now a few weeks ago my hubbys mum says to him, that he was diagnosed aspie as a kid he never knew till that moment !!!??!!! ( does explain a few things) sooo confused and we have 4 children, 3 boys and a girl. My dr was happy about our " family" the idea of hubby and possibly 2 of our kids having this is " interesting" her words. Is this possible??? can all our kids have or get aspergers cause their daddy has it???? we r lost and feel like a failure, what have i done to my sons for this to happen?
