Dear Gordon:

I must confess that there are times when I have a hell of a hard time staying focused or following directions due to my Aspergers Syndrome or "high functioning" autism. At the same time, I can be super observant & hyper focused when I'm doing things such as this blog. The key for helping these students to stay concentrated & focused is to find teachers that can adapt to their needs. For instance, I had a couple of teachers who encouraged me in mathematics since I couldn't count past the number thirty (30) to keep on counting Roman Numerals like I had been doing & then convert them back inII numbers & that seemed to be of tremendous help. Every student is different & teachers must be taught to never crack & have extreme patience in helping these remarkable kids overcome their challenges!

A Monumental But Achievable Task,
