Today is International Asperger’s Day, a day to celebrate and show support for people with Asperger Syndrome and their families and carers.

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

Here is a wonderful video of the amazing surfer Clay Marzo who has Asperger Syndrome. Tony Attwood is in the video discussing Asperger Syndrome and how the condition has helped Clay Marzo to excel in the waves.

  1. Garbielle, what a beautiful video. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this series of posts. The pointers you have offered – especially the radio programme – have been real eye openers. I do not exaggerate when I say I feel so much less alone -and have more self awareness- as a result of your writing this week. Thank you 🙂

  2. Hi Gabrielle, thanks so much for sharing this video, it’s great to see the awareness being made about aspergers syndrome. My daughter was recently diagnosed with the syndrome and let me tell you it can be so rough at times. She screams when she doesn’t get her snack, sometimes I feel like I’m at a complete loss. I refuse to give up on my daughter and I know that good discipline will help educate her as I learned on http://onlineceucredit.com/edu/social-work-ceus-ep I recommend taking a look and hope you find great advice too.

  3. I found it bittersweet seeing such a positive light on Aspergers. In my family it has caused a lot of dysfunction and unhappiness – and damage. This is the first time I’ve seen it presented as something that can be part of a person’s greatness. Great video, mixed feelings, lol.

    1. Hi Nomi 🙂 It is a great video and there are heaps of good things about aspergers – I don’t remember how I found it (probably someone sent me the link) – it is on youtube, so if you click on the video’s youtube link, it might tell you more about the video.
