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'm not getting out of this car till I'm a Christian

On Tuesday morning January 17, 2012 Carter accepted Jesus as his Lord and Saviour (his boss). Of course in "Carter style" he was sweet and funny.
We were on our way to school (I work at his elementary school)at 7:00 in the morning and I was in a hurry. Carter was in the back rambling on about the trinity. I was trying to keep up with his thoughts when all of a sudden, as we pull up in the parking lot he says "I'm not getting out of this car till I'm a Christian". He was very serious and said he wanted the holy spirit to live in his heart. We prayed and thanked God for forgiving him of his sins, and asked Him to live in his heart. He said he believed Jesus is the only way to God, and now God was the boss of him. He was so excited the next day at AWANA he told everyone and was proud.
It is a wonderful day when the child you gave birth to is reborn into Gods family.
