Trab Posted October 26, 2005 Report Share Posted October 26, 2005 As some of you may already know, from reading some of my earlier posts, I have Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. Although not massively handicapping for me, since I have managed to develope some good coping strategies over the years, there are many who have not been quite so lucky. Many kids, teens and those in their twenties suffer from both their 'challenges' and societal discrimination due to behavior problems. When we try to explain the extent, range and depth of the different aspects of A/S to the 'average Joe' it turns into a marathon exercise. We cannot express ourselves well verbally, and in the written format we seem incapable of reducing the information to anything less that about 2.5 pages of material. What I am looking for is someone who can take submissions from me, and some other aspies (as people with A/S often call ourselves) to write a small piece that would effectively describe much of Asperger's on the front and back of a business card, or, in a pinch, on one of those fancy cards that has one fold (twice the business card size). One of the aspects of A/S is a tendency (read "NEED") to be exact, and this pretty much precludes any one of us aspies from writing this condensed description. We've tried, and failed. We need a 'professional'. Anyone? Quote Link to comment
