You know I do not get riled up about many things but this video really ticked me off to the point I had tears running down my checks.  A 5th grade Michigan teacher by the name of Nicole McVey decided it was appropriate to record a video of one of her  students who as Asperger's Syndrome after he got stuck in a chair.  Not only that, the principal of the school decided to join in teasing the boy.  Not once did they offer to help  Then she proceeded to show the video to other students and teachers.

Let’s Help Wish Colin a Happy Birthday – How You Can Help

A mother in Kalamazoo set out on a mission to let her son know that he is very loved after he told his mom that he didn't want a birthday party because he didn't have any friends.  This is one of those stories that hits very close to home with me, because Colin has sensory disorders and a form of Aspergers.   This story is also why I love social media.  UPDATE: Colin's disorders were never made public, but he does suffer from something similar to Aspergers.

Mommy Blogger Christy K. – Autism ≠ ‘Rain Man’

One of the difficult things about Autism is that every child on the spectrum is so very different. I would like to think that the days are gone where people hear the word Autism and think of either Dustin Hoffman in “Rain Man” (a savant, which is relatively rare), or a nonverbal child standing in a corner banging his head against the wall. While both of these examples are quite real, they also represent the very extremes of the Autism spectrum, from very high to very low functioning. The larger percentage of children with Autism fall somewhere in between those two extremes, and my son is no exception.
