Aspergers is part of a spectrum disorder so it's really hard to give advice because every child is different and responds differently based on their behaviors or needs.
Same with ODD really. What works for one child may not work for another
Maybe you could give some more info about your DS?

I'm not much help just wanted to say never give up on them, ever. My husbands younger brother has this and he is quite an isolated adult we are still trying to help him whereas his mum gave up on him many years ago it's quite sad. Support and encouragement go a long way.

Thanks.. We are trying really hard but it's sadly getting to a stage where
I can't foresee myself coping long term with his behavior. I also worry about his feelings if he is the one with the problem iykwim.
