Little Dude is more along the lines of the high-functioning Asperger's. And I can certainly say there are distinct advantages and disadvantages to our situation.
In the spirit of Autistic Pride Day, here is my Top Ten list of Asperger's advantages and disadvantages.
Disadvantage #10 Little Dude eats the same thing, every day.
Disadvantage #9 All Legos, all the time.
Disadvantage #5 Does not make eye contact with friendly pediatric nurse.
Advantage #5 Does not make eye contact with anyone at Walmart.
