    My dd's 1/2 size acoustic was $69 and was.a birthday present, and her 3/4 size electric was $99 and a Christmas present. She plays my brother's drums, but they were in the van when he crashed and looters got to them so no drums for a while.

    As a past scout leader, I'd highly recommend it. We had kids with all sorts of background etc. and they loved it .

    All you have to do is explain to the leaders the situation. We used to sit down with the kids when someone that had a disability or the like. We had one little girl that couldn't stand anyone touching her hair. Not a disability but obviously something that needed to be addressed. For the most part the kids would be really accepting and always did their best to make sure the new child fit in.

    I'd recommend speaking to the leader of your local group and just ask if they're able to accommodate. You'd be suprised how willing they can be to help.

    Ooooh he would LOVE those kind of things!! SO much!
    Not really the physical activity I was hoping for, but definitely something to keep in mind if all attempts at sport fail! LOL

    My daughter with Aspergers does karate and loves it. It doesn't involve a lot of contact and she loves the strict routine of the class. I (and all my kids who do it) love that they get regular rewards, in the form of stripes on their belt. It gives them a sense of achievement, and unlike swimming, the rewards are very regular. I know quite a number of kids with ASD's who do it and all really find it rewarding.

    My 5yo ds has just been diagnosed with Aspbergers. I knew he had it since he was almost 3yo. He has now been doin karate, which he enjoys. He did Auskick too, which is finished now. He said at first he doesn't wanna play footy anymore and now he does! Grrrrrr! Kid can't make his mind up, lol! Will c if he still wants to play when its time to enrole for Auskick again. I simpathise with all u mums here! Aspbergers kids r very mentally challenging, and I'm just trying to learn some patients.....
