Happy International Asperger’s Day everyone πŸ™‚

I’ve been blogging about Asperger’s Syndrome for the past few days and today, the 18th February is the day.

My son is very excited that he has a day dedictated to him. He said to me ‘at last I am getting the respect I deserve’ – haha.

He is adorable and will be getting some treats today – we are going out for dinner and he will get a whole hour on the computer (up from his usual 1/2 hour). His sister is a little jealous πŸ˜‰

Today I am posting a video of the wonderful Temple Grandin, an inspirational women with Asperger’s Syndrome who lectures all over the world (and had a movie made about her life). She is an expert on the design of cattle management systems as well as autism. This video is a must see. She explains things in a way that is so much better than reading about this stuff.
