    Note: SFTAH transferred this from old data base when site was updated, thus date and name lost, all dates 2006 & 2007 changed during changeover to odd dates.Hi my son Jack has aspergers and dyslexia.  He is having a real problem with writing in his school work.  We home school him because the stress he felt in school was too much and he is loving it but...when he is given a task to write something he struggles so much.  His motor development is not great and his handwriting in itself is bad but it is not that I am worried about as such.  We are doing a project on penguins right now and he had to make a travel brocure for antartica he can not get his head around it.  He understands what is required but can not compose if you know what I mean.  Creative writing is such a struggle does anyone know how to help him with this?[:)]sm

    Hi Sarah. We have always found the best way to get results with any area of the curriculum is to start with our son’s primary interest and then slowly move the ‘goalposts’ to cover whichever area we want to teach. Our ‘high functioning’ son would have no interest in penguins (although our ‘low functioning’ son loves them!!!) and would see no relevence in a composition around them. However, Dr Who on the other hand…… Therefore a travel brochure about a planet featured in series 3, episode 4 would be much more interesting (to him) and would probably achieve the same objectives. If you get the chance, have a read of Temple Grandin’s books where she talks about how utilising cattle (her primary interest) helped her educationally. Hope this helps a little and best of luck with the home schooling. Dave.

If you have any important fact about your child let me know  and i'll try to find positive ways to make his weakness as his strong point.Regards & CheersAmit[url=http://"http://www.nurseryjobsonly.com"]Nursing Jobs[/url](Jobsite provides Nursing, Childcare, and Social-care jobs)

    i know aspergers is dominant in male genetics, but i dont know of any females who have aspergers, it would be nice if there was one out there, who is looking for friendship or more with someone like me, or if there is any websites or help i can get to find someone who really knows what its like to have a/s, and are looking for the same.
