Question and Answers for Grades 10 to 12


question My child has Aperger's, and is very discouraged with school. He didn't do well in grade 10, self-esteem is low and now wants to quit altogether. He gets easily frustrated when pressured especially with exams. What can I do to encourage him?

We have an article on our blog that has some strategies for parents that might be helpful: http://www.ourkids.net/blog/supporting-children-asd-parents-guide-21575/, with additional links at the bottom to articles such as how teachers and other school staff and specialists can help: http://www.ourkids.net/dialogue/?p=399 You may also be interested in learning about schools that offer Asperger’s support: http://www.ourkids.net/aspergers-schools.php We have also worked with Ken Rabow, who is a Life Empowerment coach and covers a wide range of topics for preteens/teens, including special needs challenges - you can get in touch with him directly here: http://www.ourkids.net/blog/author/kenrabow/ - if you mention Our Kids he has offered to give a free consult to see if he can help. The Asperger’s Society of Ontario has a number of resources on their website that you may find useful too: http://www.aspergers.ca/asperger-syndrome-toolkit/
