As many of you know I have my own issues with the neurodiversity crowd, as well as the woe-is-me crowd of parents. So this video does not really speak for me. Some it does. In fact most of it does. However, I am probably someone the author may not like at times, too. I just thought this video is such a personal perspective and says so much, that people should see it for themselves.
About Me: I am the mother of two teenage boys with aspergers. My oldest was diagnosed with PDD-NOS at 5 and then rediagnosed before middle school with aspergers. He is now in college and my younger aspie is in a pre-college highschool program. My blog is about my adventure parenting these two boys. Hopefully something I write will help others. My intention is to pass on what I know has worked for my boys and hopefully it will work for your child as well. It's my version of paying it forward.
