High Functing Autism

People with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome do not have the delayed language development that's typically found in people with autism. In addition, people with high-functioning autism have average or above average intelligence. However, they may show other behaviors and signs similar to what's seen with other types of autism: delay in motor skills lack of skill in interacting with others little understanding of the abstract uses of language, such as humor or give-and-take in a conversation obsessive interest in specific items or information strong reactions to textures, smells, sounds, sights, or other stimuli that others might not even notice, such as a flickering light Unlike people with other forms of autism, people with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome want to be involved with others. They simply don't know how to go about it. They may not be able to understand others' emotions. They may not read facial expressions or body language well. As a result, they may be teased and often feel like social outcasts. The unwanted social isolation can lead to anxiety and depression.

I see you from my whole life

Last night we are driving home from a family dinner at the Pratt's and Carter starts crying, tears and everything. I asked what was wrong and he says "I miss my preK teacher" I said " Do you mean Mrs. Sheri?" he said yes, I need to talk to her, cuz I miss her"
He said to tell Mrs Sheri in an email "I love you Mrs Sheri. because I see you from my whole life." love Carter
He is so sweet. He loves deeply and it cracks me up that he think of people randomly.
