I just read a great article about "the autism advantage" in the NYT. Here's the link: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/02/magazine/the-autism-advantage.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0&hpw This article makes me think of difficult child and his older brother - who is happily working at a startup out West. difficult child is two semesters away from his BS in computer science! I never would have dreamed this was possible when I first signed on to this site. There is hope out there!!!
