Patient discussion about Asperger disorder
Q. My brother has Asperger Syndrome, what should we do? Thank you for your attention! My brother has Asperger Syndrome, which is also known as very high function autism. As he has grown, he has become intelligent, and he is a fully functional boy. He plays his video games, does his homework, very social, and he is a normal boy. Yeah, he may seem a bit weird (like he may talk to himself, and be loud) but he’s fully functional. He is in the 8th grade, today my mother went to an interview for his high school future. The lady wants to put him with the autistic children!?! I want him to go to basic a class that’s the lowest and easiest level, but my mom is upset, and we are worried they won't let him....what should we do?
