    I'm not sure why I don't have sound, but I'm going to google those trailers because I really want to watch them. Vic, did you see the movie about Temple Grandin starring Claire Danes. I thought she played the part very well. There is another woman with AS who writes and I so loved her book. I believe she has also written about adolescence and AS, but she mostly writes about females. Her name is Lianne Willey and then another name I can't remember. Her bio was great. Eventually she married very happily and has several children.

    Hi SB,

    If you can watch the biography , A Mother's Courage Talking Back to Autism that's where two of the clips came from. Right now it's on Netflix but I'm not sure if you have that.

    No I never saw the movie about Temple.

    Sometimes people think because you can speak that you're social. This is not true. If you cannot use your language for reciprocity in a relationship then you have trouble being social . For instance the psychologist said my son offers very little spontaneous conversation. Very little give-and-take. He wants to talk about is favorite topic and very little else. In that way he shows little empathy. He has no inkling whatsoever that other people might not want to talk about his favorite topic. When he talks to us his favorite topic is the course of conversation 90% of the time. And this is why it is very hard for him to retain social relationships. So you can have language and not be social.

    Today I'm angry again that this wasn't diagnosed earlier. All the help out there is for little kids. Everything I look up of course has treatments for toddlers and young young kids. It seems almost everything out there would insult my son's age and intelligence. There is so very little out there for transitioning. I downloaded a toolbox from autism speaks but almost everything in there is for little kids.

    I hope this link works. This is to a book on adolescence and Asperger's by Lianne Holiday Willey. She and one of her daughters both have Asperger's. I read her book called, "Pretending to be Normal" and liked it very much.

    I don't have Netflix but I will find a way to watch that doco. Thanks.

    sorry, right author, but wrong book but there is a link at that site to the book on transitioning to adolescence. There are also links to books by other authors, especially John Harpur who writes for adolescents and education.
