Some of his good qualities: He's wicked smart. He understands math almost at his sister's 7th grade level, even though he's only in 1st grade. He kicks my ass in checkers - every time. He can do that Rainman trick with counting. He's precise and definite.
Some of his bad qualities: He doesn't like leaving the apartment and almost always throws a tantrum when we have to leave. He gets way to obsessive about video games. His tantrums on occasion are extremely violent.
Anyone know anyone dealing with autism? Any suggestions?
I'm trying to look at autism as a hurdle rather than a definition of who he is.
