  1. My 5 year old son, C, is one of a kind. He is the most imaginative person I have ever met. He lives in a world full of magic, but visits our mundane planet to spend time with the people he loves (and for the chocolate). The sensations on this planet can be hard for him to handle. Some noises are so loud or distracting that he has to plug his ears. Some places that are so quiet that it makes his head hurt. He is afraid of the dark, but bright lights make him edgy (even if he doesn't realize it). His sense of smell and taste can be troublesome too. He's actually part wolf, and that makes him an extra good smeller and taster. Flavors and scents that might be pleasant to me are overwhelming to him. Worse than the smells and sounds on Earth are the crazy customs of Earthlings. They insist that you stuff your feet into uncomfortable shoes every single day instead of running barefoot as nature intended. Their silly human clothes have scratchy tags, tricky zippers, and pinchy spots, making it impossible to relax or to move the way he wants to. Plus? They have this ridiculous idea that clothes be divided into girls and boys sections. As if genetalia were a requirement for color preferences. Then there are the people, themselves. Impossible creatures! They don't understand him at all. Even though he mastered Earth language at an early age, he has a habit of forgetting it when he gets nervous, and humans definitely make him nervous. Maybe it's because he never really knows what they are going to do? They are endlessly confusing, and it can be hard to tell which ones are friendly and which ones are dangerous. Also, humans have WAY too many rules, and most of them don't even make sense. Everyone thinks they can tell him what to do, where to go, how to act, what to say, even who to be. Sometimes it feels like he has no control over his own life, and that makes him angry. I'm his mom, and I love him just the way he is. I always will. I don't want to change him, but I do need to find a way to make him feel more at home here on Earth. If only all of these humans would learn to loosen up a little.

    Join us for our upcoming Deep Into Defense Mode Live workshop where you'll learn all you need to know on getting out of Defense Mode, building trust, and increasing motivation in yourself & others (family, friends, etc). This event will be held in Pasadena, CA (roughly 30 min drive from Los Angeles International Airport with minimal traffic). AN UPDATE: Hello, In light of the recent outbreak of Coronavirus and per the recommendation of the California Dept of Health, we have made the decision to move our upcoming DIDM Live Los Angeles event to an online format. That means that it will no longer be held in Pasadena, CA. Instead, it will be held over a group video chat, using Zoom. We understand this isn't the ideal situation, and we want to express our sincere regret to the many families and individuals who were looking forward to attending this event in-person. We will do all we can to help make this online workshop an incredible, educational, and life-changing experience for you and your family. Here’s how this will work: 3 days before the event, we will email you a Zoom link that you can use to join. Please test the link out beforehand to make sure the software works on your computer. If you have any questions or tech problems at all, email danny@aspergerexperts.com and he will help you get it sorted out. On the morning of Saturday March 21st at 9 AM Pacific Time, we will all meet together, face to face via video chat. From there, we will participate in the workshop just like we would in a face to face meeting. The regular schedule will still hold, and we will still be available during the lunch time for 1-on-1 coaching and questions. After the workshop concludes, we’ll send you a full recording of the event (something we weren’t able to do before!), so that you can re-watch as many times as you’d like. To make up for any inconvenience caused by this change of format, we will also be giving you free, complimentary tickets to an upcoming live event of your choice (NOTE: more Asperger Experts events will be scheduled and announced once the outbreak of Coronavirus has passed). You’ll receive a number of complimentary tickets equal to the amount you have purchased for this event. That way you’ll get to attend two AE workshops for the price of one- one online event and another live, in-person event in the future! These free workshop tickets never expire, so you can use them whenever it works best for you. Again, this isn’t what any of us were hoping for, and we want to express our sincere regret to the many families and individuals who were looking forward to attending this event in-person. Our first and greatest concern is for the health and wellbeing of our community, including you and your family. For this reason we feel it is wise to limit in-person attendance at the Deep Into Defense Mode workshop this month. That said, we certainly look forward to meeting you in-person at a future AE event! We are also very excited to spend two days together during this upcoming online workshop - answering your questions and getting to know you better. Thank you for your patience and understanding.If you have any questions, concerns or just need to talk, just reply to this email or email us at help@aspergerexperts.com Thanks and talk soon, The AE Team
  5. We're returning to Los Angeles for our flagship workshop, Deep Into Defense Mode Live! We'll be in Pasadena, CA on March 21st & 22nd, 2020 with 40 awesome individuals ready to get out of Defense Mode, gain some clarity & know what to do when it comes to motivation, relationships & more. In this workshop, we focus on 4 major areas: Understanding Defense Mode - What goes on inside the mind & body of someone with Asperger's when they are in Defense Mode? Stop Walking On Eggshells - How to hold boundaries and say no in a way that doesn't put them further into Defense Mode, so you can stop walking on eggshells. Holding Space - How to help someone else get out of Defense Mode, without even talking to them. Motivation Without Coercion - How to motivate someone on the spectrum... without resorting to arguing, manipulation, reward or punishment. Have questions?
