I don't know that this is exactly a discussion starter. Maybe more of a concern on my part. I am a school psychologist and have a 16 year old daughter who is bright, happy and starting her senior year. I also have a 13 year old son who was diagnosed with Asperger's a year ago. It is so hard having my son in the same school district that I work in because I am constantly afraid he is going to have a meltdown. He is a very smart, quirky kid. Quirky is not exactly accepted here by other boys. The girls all think he is ultra cool because he dresses differently and his mannerisms are much more feminine then his counterparts. I hate that I worry all the time that something bad is going to happen. I catch myself wanting to apologize for him in advance, when it is really just my problem.
