We try to maintain a demand free environment, but my son is exceptionally demanding (generally demanding something from me every few minutes) and wants my attention 100% of the time which is monumentally overwhelming as every fibre of my being wants to flee from the demands he puts on me.

Many families tell me their child’s teacher says their child can’t possibly be anxious because they’re always laughing and trying to make the other children laugh,” Thompson says, who is an educational consultant with families. No formal diagnosis is required to access support from Pinpoint – a child may be on a waiting list, accessing services, had a referral turned down, or just be struggling.Neurotypicals do the exact same thing you're being accused of, and that's mounting a defense from the perspective that would be similar if the person accused was responding themselves.

For older kids and teens, depersonalize demands with schedules and planners — then let them take care of the rest, she adds.

That’s especially true when you’re receiving the message from other parents and teachers that you’re being too lenient with your child and that they lack discipline.

So many professionals get it wrong recently I have been told that my 4yo is not autistic because he chooses to deliberately behave as he does.

I'm still going to read his book and consume his materials because he has excellent insight on many things, but much like the neurotypicals do, he has a blind spot when it comes to himself, and conflates his personal flaws as part of group pathology. Frequent conflict at home can take its toll on the whole family, says Donna Henderson, a Maryland-based neuropsychologist and author of the book Is This Autism? Consequently, Thompson’s use of neurodiverse to describe DAPers can be viewed as appropriating neurodiversity for their own agenda and utilising fringe neurodiversity concepts. Thompson is using their lived experience to explain the difference between autism/ DAP/ ADHD, this is problematic for numerous reasons. To conclude while Thompson has produced an intriguing video, there is little to justify it being utilised as a resource.
