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.
