My 9-yr-old son was just diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a 'high functioning' form of autism. He has managed to succeed (and excel) in school this far. He was misdiagnosed and mis-medicated for three years as ADHD. I am somewhat angry that he could go so long with neither the schools nor his Dr. catching this as the problem. School officials and peers just thought he was a little 'weird', or that my husband and I were lousy parents. I am wading through tons of websites, books, and expert advice to try to understand what the diagnosis means for him and for our family. Right now (third grade) he is doing exceptionally well in school, except for the social issues, including some anger and anxiety behaviors. Anyone else out there with experience or familiarity with Asperger's?
