Very helpful! I used Temple's suggestions when encouraging my son with moderate to high-functioning Autism (not Asperger) to aim for more computer education so he could find work with computers, which he loves. At 40 years of age, he is able to diagnose and fix all my computer problems and those of my friends. It's still difficult to find paid work, though, with this disability. He's doing volunteer computer work with our church and a friend's radio station to build up his resume.

If you have an Aspbergers. or work with one, this is a good read. You must think a bit differently, and utilize their existing gifts, which they most definitely have, to encourage and steer into a productive direction. Just because they have a label, doesn't mean they can't have a productive, enjoyable life, but they must learn skills, esp. social. This is a good place to start to see the potential of many ppl. Personally, i wish they would stop calling ppl that are different, disabled....it tends to promote victimhood, instead of resourcefulness and victory...
