Hello my favorite network of wonderful people. I was wondering if you could be of assistance to me. Yes, back to Ex. I am trying to figure out the most simplest dumbed - down way of explaining Aspergers, Sensory processing issues, etc...and all of the reasons that kids on the spectrum act the way they do - or according to Ex, why the lying, why the tantrums, why the defiance, why the obsession with video games. I have explained it in English, in relatively simple terms. Everyone, but Ex, that is not familiar with Aspergers or ASDs got it. I need to dumb it down BIG time....like to the level of a big goof, drunk, who only thinks ONE WAY is the right way and one opinion is the right opinion. To give you an idea, he could hear from each one of you individually, regardless of your level of expertise or experience with ASD and tell you that you're wrong because it's not what his "guys" say ("guys" being whatever "experts" he consults). Anyway, what I'm picturing is a version of ASD, etc similar to the "...For Dummies" series of books. Can anyone help? Thanks, Loves!
