I learned about autism when I was in college. All they talked about was young children with autism. My son is almost 30 years old now. He still has autism and I guess always will. I don't know how to deal with him as an adult. Obviously I cannot treat him as a child. Can anyone help me?

Can you start trying Gluten free and Dairy free diet? It helped my child and I saw results within a week. I know there is no use saying not to worry. But, we are all there with you and there's always hope.

Hi there, I have a 20 yr. old son with Aspergers syndrome (part of the autism umbrella) He was diagnosed when he was 10. He is high functioning however there are still struggles. What sorts of things are you wanting to know? You mention how to deal with him. Can you give me an example of what type of situation etc.?
