What I Wish Someone Had Told Me When My Son was Diagnosed With Asperger's Syndrome

Kristina Lakes




1. Educate yourself. Learn  everything you can about Asperger’s. 

2. Get over yourself. Get a doctor. Get a therapist. Get used to receiving help.

3. You will need allies. Gather the troops. Whether it’s family, friends, a support group, or an online group, you will need others to vent to, rejoice with, commiserate with,  and talk to.

4. Tell your child about his or her diagnosis early. 

5. You will need boundaries. You’re going to need structure, routine,  and rules. Your days of flying by the seat of your pants are gone.

6. Get calm. Get confident. Get strong.

7. Open the lines of communication with your child. Have the hard conversations early, so they won’t be so hard later on. 

8. Build a good relationship with your child. Do fun things together. Don’t let your life revolve around doctor appointments and counseling.

9. It’s going to be harder than you ever thought, but’s going to turn out okay because you are going to make it okay. 

10. Don’t give up. Ever.
