Hi Tonya, I also have a son with Asperger's Syndrome. Some are diagnosed High Functioning or Aspergers and they have a very high IQ. My son did the same thing with the repetitive questions that can drive a person crazy! He went through the Star Wars saga and on to Lord of the Rings knowing the language, terrain and events by heart. They are very thorough when it comes to their interest.

Sometimes it's necessary to use that interest as a curriculum for learning, especiall to read. Your son is very logical, lol, and they truly have a one track mind! I put a passion in my son's heart for history, so that is his interest, but he spends a lot of time doing his own research on computer. He rarely watches tv, but he has a sense of humor and watches Family Guy, thanks to my daughter, lol.

Since your family has seen a UFO, it's going to be hard to sidetrack that focus of his. You sound like a very intelligent person and are doing your best from what you've typed. The only suggestion I have is to try and change his focus and that could be on anything from martial arts lessons to NO NOT STAR WARS! The sky is the limit?

I have seen levels of maturity with my son. He's more mature than most 16 yr. olds. He doesn't socialize much and he's in a regular classroom and seems to be well liked. His maturity developed later than most and then took off. It's their intense focus than slows them down socially, but what is normal? That is judged by societies rules. Right?

Hello, thank you for the post. I wish I was feeling more up to snuff to write but I've been through an operation and the pain meds have got me feeling all luluish.

As to our kiddos, they do have amazing minds, don't they?
Actually, he intimidates me sometimes with whatever powers he possesses in that lil mind of his.

Right now Cody is enthralled with the Mythbusters. It's turned out to be the perfect show for him because of it's very nature. It's either real or NOT! Period. Confirmed or busted and he loves the myth aspect of it as well. It's a myth that can either be proven or busted! Where as Ancient Aliens was sooo much more daunting in it's we will give you all this incredibly credible info and make you decide for yourself. Yeah, that was hard on him. Heck it was hard on all of us. I haven't denied him what he learned from that show but... for us to try and give him evasive, take or leave it answers. Fuggetaboutit! Holy smokes! You know what I'm talking about right?

It is really difficult for me to talk about what we saw, even here. I don't know if I can. I feel like I'm sneaking around behind everyone's back to try and talk about it.... somehow! The trouble is, as much as we KNOW what we saw...where I take issue is in the fact that only WE saw it. We can all give each other this silent knowing comfort and that within the 5 of us we validate one another. But, there is no validation when we walk out the front door everyday. It's an amazing secret that we have kept, but it is a burden as well. >>>big sigh

LOL, yes, I do know what you are talking about as far as evasive answers. I have even been accused of not listening, but a person can only take so much of a subject that never seems to end, lol. My son knows now that I will listen for a while, but not for hours! It does get easier. I would tell him my brain is going to explode.

My son is now 16 and is a Junior in High School. I hope you feel better soon.

Also, they are all different. It was difficult for my son to learn to read at first, because of his intense focus, but he had a great teacher in First grade that really worked with him. He would write his name backwards everyday and we thought he was dyslexic. Now his vocab. is unbelievabe and he's a great speller. He's not good at math, because of the sequence problem. We just found a great software program online that shows step-by-step how to do equations. It's super! He studied it all night and is so happy. I think he will pass Algebra now.

Tonya, I don't mean to imply that it's been easy, because it hasn't. A public school is not an easy environment for the High Functioning. They are expected to live strictly by the rules, which makes it very difficult for them. It wasn't so hard for me, but it does require patience with a child like ours. It can be a difficult life for them and I wish you all the best. It does get easier with lots of love and patience. I see how much you love him.

I see how much you love him.


Yes...I do. So incredibly much. >snifflin< I think the drugs are making me all weepy tonight. My sister just came to pick him up and take him for the night so I can get some rest.

Cody is joy beyond measure. I just have this feeling sometimes, like there is something about Cody that I may never understand. But whatever it is about him...it's my responsibility to get him...to that....whatever it is. I can't explain it. I don't want to sound ridiculous...but he was so excited to see that craft, for all of us to see it. He was laughing and waving his hands at it. He was sooooo mad at me for leaving because we were all so freaked out. If I could have that night back again....

I don't know....>deep sigh

Hello there and welcome to ATS


You seem like a pretty cool mom.


I used to work with kids who had varying exceptionalities, autism was one of the main. I loved that job. The kids were great and I just wanted to take them all home. Each one was so smart in their own way and each seemed to fixate on their own areas of interest and they pretty much knew those areas like the back of their hands.

One kid who I remember sitting on my lap asking me to tickle him was a huge fan of the X Files. He was 5 and his grandmother said he loved the show and he would quote it. Then one day I came to work in a black leather coat and my hair was the cut and almost the same color as Scully's and he grabbed my jacked and called me Scully. He use to call me Scully everytime I wore that jacket. He didn't speak much but when he did it was always one of his few areas of interest.......My mom still works at the same school I did and had him in her summer camp program at the school. He is now 6ft tall and almost 180lbs! My mom showed me picks and it made me smile. She said he still has the same interests and likes to be tickled even at 18.

I know others have pointed out some videos for you since you said he enjoys the visual part. If he is interested in the pyramids he might like this documentary. It's in parts but it's one of my favorites on the pyramids. There is a lot of information to do your own research on. I have watched it a half a dozen times or more already lol. I also have in my signature a link to the thread on it which also has other interesting links within it.
Revelation of the Pyramids





Also one day I'd love to hear your UFO encounter. I am very interested in UFO encounters as I have had my own questionable encounters with objects I couldnt' identify.

Tonya, I think you will find some very intelligent, very studied, and some very well read people on here, with the same interest as your son. I myself am one of these, I love that series. Ask away, I will do the best I can.

Hello, thanks for jumping in and thank you for your kind remark.
I was coming to put up a link to some pictures of Cody, as well as all my kids friends who love to be models for the camera. They're sort of like cats; feed them, love them and they keep coming back! LOL!

So not to get off topic on my own topic.
You know maybe I will take this quiet time tonight to write about what we saw.
I've been asking and praying (in the universal karmic sense) to find some sort of an outlet about Cody and the aliens. Not necessarily for him...for ME! He's already set in what he believes!

I do read the threads here about various and assorted ET issues. But when it comes to this forum there are so many people saying so many things and debating the issue from one extreme to another...I swear it is like Cody 100 x's fold.


It's easier this way, so I'll just sit tight on my own thread and just start typing as karma comes knocking.

K -I'll be back

His brother and sister call them alien eyes!

Cody is convinced he's Aryan! I'd have to explain that another time!


Thanks for looking. It's making me smile tonight.
It's so quiet here without him.

Alright I gotta go change the wrappings on my ear and maybe throw back a little more codeine.
I think I can take more than 6 an hour, right???

reply to post by Tonya Hi, I read your interesting post- I have a lot of experience in working with autistic children and am retired now. I would like to help you help your child.How old is your child? What are the questions he is asking you? You don't state them in your post. Secondly, is your child mainstreamed into a regular classroom with special help on the side? Do you know what his reading and math levels are? If you like , please let me know . I may have a number of solutions for you.

Thank you for your offers for help. Cody is 10 and in 3rd grade. He is in a public school but I have to tell you it is a fantastic school and he does have a full time Ed Tech, or BHP with him through the day.

I'm not sure how much you have read here and it makes it hard to know where to begin when someone new comes to me with offers for help. To be honest I'm kind of losing sight of what I am asking help with.

The reason Cody and I are sitting on an ET/UFO sight is because we as a family had an encounter with one. Cody is enthralled with what happen and was going through a stretch when I first came here when he was insisting on grilling all of us at home to talk about what we had seen. We also started watching the ancient aliens series on Netflix. Cody is now absolutly convinced that "We are not alone!" And we all have to support him with this because we were there too. But now it has turned into this hush hush issue because he talks about it with his friends at school and relatives and his friends pastor...do you see where I'm going with this.

I'm still here writing about it I think more for myself now then Cody. The more I think about it the more I think that we may all be suffering from post traumatic stress.

I have been able to bump Cody's record onto other interests and computer related programs to watch on Netflix. We don't watch cable tv, so we use the computers if we want to watch a program of some kind. Myself, my oldest son and his girlfriend started watching the Ancient Aliens series on Netflix. Cody walked in on it and from the moment those men started talking he went absolute tunnel vision on that series. He understands that what they are saying are "theories" he gets that...but what makes it hard is that we have these extremely intelligent people talking about there theories that seem ...extremely plausible! They make sense in many ways. And to Cody, they make even as much sense as Santa never made sense.

So...because Cody's autism affects him most in his social behaviors, meaning being very impulsive about the things he says but also because we saw something incredible and he just doesn't understand why we just want to hush the whole thing up. At least while he's in school, or before the pastor tells him we were being chased by demons. Well, Cody apparently told the pastor he was being silly and walked away.

I was suppose to be writing about it tonight...but I swear every time I try to write about that night, I just freeze. Goodness knows I can bang out 2000 keystrokes when I type about anything else...but...

I don't know. I don't even know what help I'm asking for. I can't make the world believe him, and I can't make him understand why. His sister is horrified and does not want to talk about it all or his brother will snatch him up and start a wrestling/tickle match just to "bump his record" and we move on to Mythbusters or one of his dinosaur books. Or whatever...anything.

The more I type about it the more I start to think, there is no easy answer to this, no way out I guess. But just to love him and cope with it as best as we can.

I guess that's about as far as I will take it tonight. People have been telling me...LET HIM LEARN! And I do. The tricky part is trying to make him understand that the teacher and his friends are not going to listen and take him seriously when he talks about the little golden airplane that they made fly! And that the aliens designed it thousands of years ago. And that's just a small example.

Do you see...?

So, I thank you and it's nice to know how many people have been so generous here with their time and advice. Still, as a parent, how do you teach them in truth and responsibility that YES there are lights in the sky Cody, all over the world. But no, I don't really know why. I just wish this country would climb on board with the rest of the world in Disclosure and THEN we will feel like we have more solid ground to stand on.

Sooo....as an educator, if Cody came to you in front of all his peers and asked you if you believed in ET's, what would you say? With all those little eyes staring up at you...Or the checkout lady in Walmart, or to the new neighbors moving in next door.

This is what we need help with the most. Allowing him to believe in what he believes...because we were all there and can not deny what we saw, and then let him look back and try to understand why they were here, and why they have come back, or if they ever really left.

>>>deep breath here

Why do you mention your son's name? It's hardly anyone's concern. He has the full right to believe in aliens because people claiming to be employees of DUMBs don't die just to make their stories look more true such as Phil Schneider. The evidence from past centuries also shows there seems to be some kind of other worldy presence or of species that are the real inhabitants of this planet.

This is not science. Science is based merely on solid proof such as all objects fall on the ground, therefore there is indeed proof of a force that acts on objects on this planet. However every thing in order to be science has to be researched, so all alien claims are just theories and this is not science, YET. Hopefully it will become or be excluded once and for all.

This means that your son should keep an open mind that things could be so but also could be not. That's why deny ignorance - don't believe all as only few thigns on the Internet are not fake, don't deny all as lies and false as many 'Know It ALL' wannabe experts claim here.

Bring him to psychologist if that doesn't help. bring him to psychiatry.

Also tell the pastor that he should stop brainwashing people with his false religious lies forced by the Church just to control the masses.

It seems you haven't read through this thread thoroughly. I've already explained a lot of what you have come at me with this morning. As for the demons, well Cody already gave the Pastor his opinion on that. Did a good job of it too, I thought. But thanks anyways.

By the way, his name is not really Cody. I made that up.

Do you call aliens 'demons' because there is no such things as demons, only a misconception in the Bible taken literally. Also IF God exists (yes tell your pastor it is questionable), he is probably not from here and doesn't hang out on planet Earth that often.

I sound rude but that's how I like it because the majority of forumers here aren't very sane. I see you are a mother and I'm not going to be bad with you. So I will actually leave this thread.

I have similar eperiences with my nephew, he is austistic and is constantly asking questions about everything, he doesn't get aggressive, more unsettled and then he gets upset and sad if he doesn't get an answer. Patience is the only thing you can have in that situation, it's very hard to explain to autistic people that you don't have the answers as they don't see the world the way everyone else does, it's also very hard to explain to people who have no experience with autism, just how the condition affects the person and everyone around them. I've been in the supermarket and he has gotten upset because he won't go the toilet, because he's frightened of the hand dryers, and the looks you get from people because they think he's just behaving bady, makes me want to scream sometimes. If say to my nephew,'I don't know.' he'll say 'Why don't you know? and then I'll say 'because I've not heard of that subject before.' and he'll say 'but why haven't you heard of that subject before/...etc etc, challenging but always worth it :-) I don't really have any answers for you, I just relate to what you are going through, you probably already know about it, but read up on Autistic Behavioural Analysis or ABA. It has helped my nephew immensly and he is able to understand his surroundings and communicate a lot better than he used to :-)
