亞斯伯格與拒學症

 
碰到拒學症個案當然不會低估其難度,尤其是經已兩三年拒學的亜斯伯格學生更是棘手。若該生是讀高中的話,我必建議他們先作情绪問题評估,進而做職業志趣及能力測試,藉此訂定選科擇業的方向,其後便可部署切合個人發展的時間表和路缐圖了。最重要的一步莫過於定立有規律的生活,依時起居飲食才有希望把生活重納正軌。而得到家庭成員參與團隊協作,機乎是個案成敗的一個關鍵。校方配合也很重要。

想到我其中一個初三學生因不肯冲凉與父親口角,翌日不肯上學,真令我擔心不已。希望那學生不會繼續出現拒學行為,否则後果不堪設想。

Special moment sharing with special hearts

  
After attending the 2015 APAC (Asia-Pacific Autism Conference in Brisbane), I went to Canberra to visit my daughter.  The conference experience is mixed because the more I learnt about intervention strategies to manage the diverse needs of people with autism spectrum disorders in their early adulthood and the more challenges I became aware of in developing these areas in my home country.   My mind is stuffed with cutting edge knowledge.   I feel kind of pressure and confused.

It is until my daughter brought me to the disability home for dinner last night had I felt relieved and anchored.   The simple presence, love and biblical reading of eight adults including my daughter and me gave me inner joy and peace.  When these disabled people said prayer for the group, I was touched and inspired.  

Regardless of what great stuff I got from the APAC, the most important and immediate thing to do is to serve with love with sensitivity and compassion.  It’s a blurred line between the one who serves and the one who is served.  Like making friends with the disabled, I feel the presence of joy and contentment among us.  These special moments sharing with the special friends made my day.

亞斯(Asperger)「機王」

剛升上中三的亞斯「機王」每日打機四、五個小時,底線是完成學校功課,不會缺失。可惜,事實並非如此簡單,據父母所說,他智能優異但學校成績平平,晚上不與家人同枱食飯而是對著電腦螢幕進食,兼夜晚遲遲不願上床就寢,更糟的是抗拒洗澡。「機王」每晚在床上輾轉反側夜夜難眠,父親試圖勸阻他停止打機,相方卻變成口角甚至大打出手。這種情況已兩年多了,父母實在頭痛。幸而,「機王」有意早曰升讀大學,所以每周抽三個下午來補習數、理、化、電腦,我想他在未來兩年應該無法那麼自在地「打機」,到底他會如何發展,待下囬再續⋯⋯
