I find myself asking the same question over and over again, is this a normal behavior for a child with Asperger's? My son exhibits behaviors that I find rather bizzare. Often times, when we hear that this is a common characteristic of Aspie chldren, then it's almost like we can breathe a sigh of relief. I'd like to hear from other mothers who have teenagers with AS to share what they have observed with their own child. For example, my son has a fascination with batteries and removes them from all remote controls in the house. He also hoards food in his bedroom, and I find it hidden in the strangest places. Is this normal for an Aspie?
I look forward to hearing if you, too, are experiencing the same with your teen.
