Good morning. I'm the grandma to my 5 yr old grandson. I've been his full time caregiver while his single dad worked and was out o the house for upwards of 13 hrs per day. My grandson was diagnosed with ASD in April and I now take him every other weekend in order to give him and his new step family a bit of a respite. He's high functioning and is in a mainstream classroom. However, he's having trouble adjusting to the demands. He's been eloping from the classroom, refuses to return to the classroom after recess and is having social and anger issues. Which brings us to my reason for joining the group. I'm hoping to learn strategies from the group and to possibly pass on strategies that have helped us in return.
