Adults with Asperger’s and those who support them learn about Life in the Asperger Lane.
A young woman pulled me aside to talk in confidence. I was conducting a Visual Strategies Workshop and we were taking a short break between sessions. She told that as an adult she had recently received a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome.
She wanted me to know that everything I was sharing about the learning style of students with ASD made so much sense to her now that she knew more about adults with Asperger’s.
This scenario did not happen just once. I’ve had the privilege of talking with many adults with Asperger’s who have shared with me how receiving their Asperger’s diagnosis in adulthood affected their lives. They usually express a sense of great relief. Somehow, they had experienced some kind of behavior, social or personal challenges that began to make sense once they understood their Asperger’s diagnosis.
