For those of you with a special needs child

How did you explain to your child what was going on with them?

With my daughter I had to explain it to her that her brain just worked a bit different than a lot of others do. She was still very smart and very capable, she just had some things to work on. This was about her ADHD/LPD

With Bub he already knew there was something "different" with him. After I got his diagnosis I sat him down and went over some things that had been bothering him, like his frustration level and his picky eating. I explained that this was his Asperger's and it was just something we had to work on. He was really pretty okay with it.

How did you talk to your kids about their special needs?
