I have a son who I think is pretty high functioning. In theory, we are being trained how to incorporate the principles of behavior analysis into everyday life and apply them when necessary with him. In practice, I forget more than I learn. But the purpose of the training is to end his intensive behavioral services. I think this is their way of saying he's doing well.

Ah, you must be talking about the quirky, fun autism they show on tv. That doesn't exist in my family either.  While very verbal, my 10 year old is considered to be moderate to severe on the spectrum.

My ds doesn't have asd  but does have adhd, GAD,  and dmdd. He's bussed an hour away because our local school didn't have an appropriate placement. He's unpredictable and explosive.  He's medicated at 10 and in behavior therapy. I never know what kid I'm going to get. It's hard and I'm in it all alone.

Mine is very high functioning and I guess you'd never know he was non-verbal for a while because he's more than made up for it!
I can still see where he has social difficulties, but it happens.
