And just to mention, I have asbergers, which is VERY different from autism. Autistic peopel don't often lead normal lives and they need special care. They have few friends and have trouble communicating verbally with people and often lash out. Asbergers people live normal lives. They may have poor social skills, but that doesn't stop us, because its just a little speed bump. I have tons of friends, and no problems with socail skills. I even managed to get out fo the learning center in my new school, and I was with minimal help at my last school, and that was mostly turning in my work on time. My dad has asbergers and he has a steady job and provides 100% of the income for our family. He has a good wife which he has kept for almost 20 years. Asbergers is a VERY mild form of autism.
