My Aspie Made It Through School, And Now Is Tackling Being A Grown Up.They say hind sight is 20/20. He is 20 and now when I look back over the progress my son made over the yrs, I realy am quite proud of him. The hardest part for him was school, from having to repeat kindigarden, and begging me to let him dropout his sr. yr. He seemed to be sensitive to certain noises, like the vacume cleaner, could not be in room when it was running. And no it wasnt an excuse not to clean, he would pick up the whole house, as long as he didnt vacume it. I think the best part of the aspergers was his total absorption in certain topics. Mostly it was Nazis, World war one and two, adn of course, Zombies. If i ever have to survive an zombie attack ill be with him and his how to fight zombies handbook. As I look back on the past i can see the trouble, but I mainly see what a unique, interesting,loving person who will do good in life. I thought Id write a little update to this. He is now 21 and has decided to go to trade school so he can get a get a job. This is coming from the boy who wanted nothing to do with any education after highschool. He has matured so much in the past yr and a half, I know helping his older sister and her baby has had a part of that. He is also learning to drive, finally! Once again I can only say how proud of him I am.
