Comments:
Having Asperger's does create challenges but it also has been the bearer of gifts and skills in my life. I don't feel that I need to be fixed anymore. I am okay the way that I am. We don't all have to be the same. What's important is learning to accept and celebrate our differences. Those who focus only on kids on the Autistic Spectrum need to wake up and provide much needed services to adults as well. Failing to address asperger adult issues now only assures that the autistic children of today will fall into the great abyss of nothingness in the way of support when they reach adulthood.
