yes, i am ignorant when it comes to asbergers. i know nothing.
watching the news this morning, and the little boy abducted in GA was returned safe. the news reported that he was happy, laughing, playing with his mom. does having asbergers prevent this from being a life long trauma for him? does asbergers keep him from having the emotion most people would have?
what are your thoughts?
Thank you to all of you who have provided clear and conciseinformation!! I know that aspergers is a complex and many leveled thing. I know that you moms who have kids with it have done countless hours of research, which is why I came to you instead of just googling it. I know what it is like having to explain yourself over and over and over when people ask you, but remember, it is their first time asking. My DS has a fainting disorder, and I know explaining to bystanders why we do NOT call 911 every time he goes down is a pain, but they don't know better.
I truely feel bad for this child over this past week. what a terrible ordeal. but to hear he was happy, laughing and playing made me hope for just a minute that he did not realize or perhaps connect with what was going on. It seems that I am mistaken, he will deal with it, probably harder than a normal child, as it can be difficult to express yourself. My hope is, that his family can find him help to learn to deal, and he can go on to have a normal childhood. I know an experience like this is something you don't just get over, but one can move on
