More on Asperger’s

God has really put the subject of autism and Asperger’s on my heart.

I have taught one particular child with Asperger’s. I was less worried about him,(I thought he was great) than the way others might treat him. He had amazed me one day by writing every station on a particular train line, right in the middle of his work.

When I was going into special education at one point, I learned a litttle about autism. It had really opened my eyes.

I believe it is likely that many  of history’s great geniuses were probably somewhere on the autism spectrum.

This is a programme about Tony Attwood, who is one of the world’s authorities on the subject. Ultimately he eventually realises he has missed his own son’s Asperger’s.
