Hi to all, I am new to this site but I have a son who is 21 and has High Level Autism/Asperger's, ADHD, Anxiety disorder and ODD.I can understand and sympathise with you all as I have been there. My son was diagnosed at age 7 with ADHD and age 12 with aspergers/High level autism. We had from age 2 to 19/20 horrendous arguements, tantrums, lies, school exclusions, panic attacks(age 12 to present) violence towards us and his brother but I must tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel 🙂In the last 2 years his behaviour has greatly improved although we still have a few things thrown and door slammed etc every now and then but they are not every day more like once a month or so. He has a girlfriend now as well!!! He still has his problems and the most difficult is finding a job and keeping it. His last employer dismissed him because he broke a bucket in frustration so he now going to a employment tribunal with our help.One thing I would say is never give up even on your worse day, these kids are sent to brighten up our world and I must admit my son over the years has nearly sent me over the edge. But I would never change him he is georgous and I love him to bits.So my advice is Fight for your child to get the help they need, Stick by your rules and don't bend, times will be hard but they do get better 🙂 and make sure you are claiming Disability Living allowance for them.Good luck to one and allSandra
