Asperger's Syndrome, Bullies and the harsh reality
Saw this in The SMH today...
My eldest son Antony has been diagnosed with Asperger's and he experienced a terrible time at primary school in which he was bullied constantly. In his final year he lunged at a bully with a pair of scissors, in a final act of desperation - just like the boy mentioned in the article. We dealt with the issue amongst ourselves, but in retrospect we should have taken it further as it would have forced the school to have their bullying programs reviewed.
Oh, there is a happy ending here. Antony is attending North Sydney Boys High School and he LOVES it and there is no problems with Bullies. It seems High School is more accepting of those who march to a different beat.[listening to: Talking Bout My Baby - Fatboy Slim ]

It has been a long time since I updated my Orkut Stats - November in fact!
My Orkut network continues to grow.
I am now connected to 3,975,578 people through 100 friends, with 15 fans.
I need more fans - come on people! Especially those who asked me to invite them to Orkut. Show me the love![listening to: 5th Set - Spiderbait ]
