I’m new to this group. My nephew (who is 3), may have AS. I would like to know how I could help him, as his Aunt. I have 2 jobs and an otherwise crazy schedule and feel very guilty about not always being able to be around him. With this being said, in what ways can I help and be supportive?
My email name is Shez but please call me Sheri. The first thing you MUST do
is give him a good, thorough evaluation. Preferably the place in which you
live has a special team specifically for Aspergers. Otherwise, you need a
neurologist and a psychiatrist to evaluate him. I live in N.Y.and the NYU
Child study Center has a great team working only with Aspergers. Johns Hopkins
in Maryland is also wonderful, and there’s also a great place in
Pittsburgh. California and UItah are also well known for their work with Aspergers,
as is England and Australia. GRASP is an organization that deals only with
Aspergers (Grasp.org) and they could certaily point you in the right direction.
Let me know what happens.

I wanted to say hello to Eric and suggest that you put on a pair of ruby slippers, get all recursive, and count backwards while walking across the pavement…read as many spice labels and food package ingredients as you can, if you’re like Eric, and journey from a bug on a bug’s back, all the way up to the invinity of the universe! (written backwards, of course.) Love from the Aunt, Wendy.
