Comments: Do I have anything else to add? Yes, as a matter of fact. I am not formally diagnosed, but I have suspected since college that I might have more Autistic characteristics than the average bear. The older I get the more I am certain that I am an Aspie, and I do fit the diagnostic criteria, for what its worth. It doesn't change anything, but it does finally give me people to really identify with. Now I am working to shift the focus of public awareness away from "cure" and on to "help" so that those who are more seriously affected by sensory and learning issues can get the interventions that they need to be the best that they can be.
