Interests, hobbies, obsessions, perseverations etc: Asperger's, Reading Nonfiction, Cognitive Psychology, Zen Buddhism, Writing Poetry, Photographing Clouds, Star Wars, Etc.
Year of birth: 1969
Profession, area of study, etc: Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I present and consult on the Asperger's Experience and emphasize the importance of a strengths based perspective of those with Asperger's. I also emphasize the importance of loving Aspies for who they are and the importance of meeting them where they're at instead of trying to get them to be neurotypical all the time. You get the best from people by letting then be themselves instead of forcing them to be someone they're not.
Where you live in the world: Illinois, United States
Marital status, # of kids etc.: Married w/ 3 boys. One diagnosed Asperger's, another very likely.

Comments: I do have social skills, I socialize with other Aspies just fine. I dream of a world where I can be as aspie as I want to be and where others will ask me what I know instead of what's wrong with me.
