My First Blog as a Mom of Aspie Teen

Well, this is my first blog ever!!!!!!!!  Let me begin by introducing myself.  I am a normal everyday working mom.  I am a 2nd grade teacher. 

I am married to my husband for 20 years.  We have an amazingly intelligent fourteen-year-old son, named Nico.  He has Asperger’s and major Anxiety issues.   My son was diagnosed in 3rd grade.  Currently, he is in 8th grade. Our public school experience has been dicey to say the least.  I am sure the other parents with special needs children are able to relate to my frustration.  

I don’t want to go all the way back in time and discuss all my issues with public schools and the lack of compassion by most general education teachers.  I want this blog to mainly discuss issues with teenagers with Asperger’s.  I want this blog to be a way of putting together a community of parents who need to be heard and who need to share their experiences.

I am Marie. I am a proud mom of Aspieteen. I am an educator in the public school system. I have seen and expierenced many school districts not meeting the needs on students with IEPs. This is frustrating to me as an educator and as a parent. Districts and schools seem to focus on the money and feelings of teachers rather than what is best for the student to be successful. Sometimes, I will share the interesting information I have found via tweeting and blogging. Then, other times, I will share my own personal experience at a parent with an exceptional teenager.
