Why I Talk About My Autistic Spectrum/ADHD/Learning Disabilities Experience. The Second in my “Why” series. Check out part 1. Why Episode 1: Photography Troy’s Life Vlog #37 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCypZ…
1. It can be therapeutic to talk about them, and it’s much less expensive than seeing a therapist. I have also never found therapists to be helpful.
2. I know I’m not alone in my situation. I know when your young it can fell like you are. A lot of people struggle with these issues, and in some sense we’re in this together.
3. The anti-vaccine movement must be stopped. Every “study” connecting vaccines to autism has been debunked. As hard as it can be to deal with being on the Autistic Spectrum, and as challenging as it can be for parents. the disease childhood vaccines prevent. Are far worse. No one has the right to turn their children into walking biological bombs.
4. Parants I know when your being over protective. You mean well. I know you want what’s best for your children who deal with these issues, and those who don’t, but sometimes you can be over protective of those of us who do. More so than those who don’t. If you have a child who is on the spectrum, has ADHD or any Learning Disability focus on what’s possible not what’s impossible. There is no guarantee that they will have success. However, they will learn and grow more if you focus on the possible and not the impossible.

Despite the tittle of this video it is not my intention to make a depressing video. I fell that at my age most opportunities to become the person I would like to be has passed me by. I do fell that I can share my experiences and opinions, and hopefully help parents of young people who face similar challenges to those that I face. To build fuller and more satisfying lives.

As someone who has lived ADHD, Autistic Spectrum and other learning disability issues. I can find myself struggling with the most mundane of tasks. Even when I don’t want to admit it. I need help with them. There is often a temptation of parents and teachers (Including my own) to be over protective. To either do or have someone do the challenging tasks for us. I understand this is done out of love. However in doing this you are prevent your children from having the experience they need to become the complete person they deserve to be. There is no substitute for experience. An easier task is not the same thing. Don’t worry that your child won’t be the best or even good at a lot of things. It’s the experience that is the most important part. About a week ago for my Sports and Learning Disabilities series. I made a video titled I’m Better At It Now Than I Was Before https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1meRr… If you let your child do challenging things they may or may not be the best or very good at them, but there will be a time where they can say I’m better at it now than I was before. This will help them with not only in gaining valuable experience, but also give them a much needed boast in self esteem.

I post a lot about Autistic Spectrum issues, ADHD and Learning Disability issues because I have dealt with them personally one way or the other my entire life. Obviously one of the biggest challenges is school. We often have trouble keeping up and can find ourselves in classes that can more resemble glorified babysitting than a place of learning even through high school. I am linking this Technology That Can Help Students With Learning Disabilities By Customizing The Learning Experience because I think technology like this would have benefited myself when I was younger, and can be used to benefit young people today and into the future who deal with Autistic Spectrum issues, ADHD and Learning Disability issues in their lives.

My newest video in my Sports and Learning Disabilities series. Which is part of my My Autistic Spectrum and ADHD Experience playlist . https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list… Success is not about being the best, or even being very good at something. It’s about improving, and doing better than you’ve done at it than before. If you fallow this channel you know that I’m a boxing fan. I have since moved my boxing videos to a new channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1Dn…. A few years ago I decided to go to a boxing gym to learn how to box. I’ve never been the most coordinated person in the world, and three plus years latter. I still might not be very good at it, but I’m better at now than I was before, because I have stuck with it. That makes me feel good about myself. from my experience self esteem and self worth are the most important and over looked issues when it comes to Autistic Spectrum, ADHD and Learning Disability issues. Seeing the improvement in my self, and being told I’m improving by others really helps with my self esteem and self worth. So if your a parent with a child who deals with Autistic Spectrum ADHD or any kind of Learning Disability and your concerned that they might not be good at any sport or any activity that requires eye hand coordination. Let them take part. They may not ever be very good, but If they stick with it there will be a day that will come sooner than you think where they will see and you will see. They are better at it now than they were before

I speak from my personal experience. My opinion is that if you’re going to make the decision to do so. Do it as young as possible. It’s more about their self esteem which is hugely important and often overlooked by the so called experts.

Those of us who deal with Autistic Spectrum, ADHD and Learning Disabilities of any kind often develop slower physically than our peers. This can lead to the discouragement of our participation in team sports, and sometimes sports in general.
My opinion is that this is not a good decision. The reality is that every sport is a team sport. I also believe that the social setting that sports provides can help develop social skills.
I’m not suggesting that you force sports on your kids. Just that if it’s something they have an interest in that you should be supportive.

Like a lot of people on the ASD Spectrum I have poor eye hand coordination. Like a lot of young people on the Spectrum my parents pushed me away from sports. They let me play, but were never all that encouraging. However, I fell that nothing else I have done has helped me development as a person than my continued participation in sports even though I have never been very good at them.

Vaccines are in my opinion the most important Autistic Spectrum Disorder and mental health issue. The reason is that even though any connection to ASD or any Mental Health issues have been and keep getting debunked. There are still people out there who refuse to accept the facts. Further more if somehow a connection can be proven. Vaccines save lives. They prevent diseases. They work because we all get them. By not getting your children their childhood vaccines you are putting everyone not just your child (which is bad enough) at risk,
