  1. My Son is 10 and has Aspergers, he is in main stream school with one to one help, and we have regular meetings as to how he's getting on. Well, had a meeting the other day where I was asked "Do you realise he can write with both hands at the time?". I had no idea he could do this, when I get home I asked him if he could show me, so he got 2 pieces of paper, 2 pens and wrote "Hello, I love you" with both hands at the same time. I was gobsmacked, he is predominently left handed and you could tell, the writing on the right handed page was slightly larger, but both were neat and legible. I then asked him if he could write different things at the same time, he said he didn't know but wanted to try, and he could, he wrote "How are you?" with his left hand and "I love you" with his right hand at the same time without even thinking about it as if it was the most normal natural thing in the world. I have never come across this before, my mum who is a teacher has never seen it before, and to be honest I don't know where to go from here with him, I knew he was clever but surely it means both sides of the brain are working simultaneously. Do I encourage it? Ignore it? Not read so much into it?
  2. Thank you all for the lovely warm welcome
  3. Hi everyone. Been a lurker for a little while but plucked the courage to join a few days ago. I'm mum to a wonderful 10 year old boy who was diagnosed with Aspergers when he was 5. Everyday I go through a whirlwind of emotions from being frustrated because I don't understand some of the things he does, to being absolutely amazed by other things he does. As a working mum who only works the night shift, I don't get a lot of time for a social life, so looking forward to meeting and talking to people on here. I'm an open book so anything you want to know just ask
