Read in July, 2012

In trying to understand my boys better, I picked up this book. It blessed me to do what I set out to do with the added measure of understanding myself better. Now I'm absolutely sure that "Asperger's" is not only the label that fits my boys, but it is what I have been dealing for as long as I can remember (as well as dyslexic and dyspraxic which often accompany Austism-spectrum challenges). We can learn to work around our challenges--to learn from them--and become productive members of society. It will be a long road ahead with numerous stumbling blocks and set-backs, but Temple did it, and we don't have nearly as far to travel as she has. The boys and I also watched the movie, Temple Grandin. Both are eye-opening and inspirational! Temple Grandin has come to speak at USU before, now we can't wait to meet her when she comes again.
