My son has AS, and is almost 10. He will routinely call out inappropriate things when someone asks him a question. He is in speech therapy and he does it a lot with his therapist. She is beginning to think we should do something about it. He has said that he wants people to understnad him by the time he is 10. Does anyone else deal with this? I am looking for solutions.

We deal w/ it too. I don't have a magic bullet to help... I think LOTS of repitition really helps. He should be in the habit of stopping himself before speaking to think about what he is going to say (ah, shouldn't we all though?).<br><br>
What kinds of things does he do w/ his therapist? What are his goals?<br><br>
It's hard b/c that is one of the big things w/ AS and getting a grip on that is so important but so difficult. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Just my own hunch, but I think the things O.T. can do with integrating the parts of the brain with each other can help with impulsivity. Similar to gaining skills in self-modulation with improved integration. Our O.T. does a lot of midline crossing activities as well as engaging cognitive thinking while giving sensory stimulation. It seems to be helping a lot with our son's instinct to lash out when mildly annoyed.
