    Many ‘Aspies’ go on to live successful lives (hold jobs, are happy, marry, etc.), but many don’t. I have a brother in his 40′s who has such low self esteem, and so many quirks, that he simply cannot obtain gainful employment or have a relationship with another. We’ve tried everything. It’s so stressful and heartbreaking to see his painful life unfolding with such distress and unhappiness. Then again, i’ve met many Aspies who hold good jobs and do well socially. Go figure.

    @sophiegromit It’s very very stressful to deal with parents who try to change who you are and try to make you act in ways and do things which are outside the realm of your nature.

    Anytime my parents had an issue with me, it was because they were harassing me. I was content to be left alone. I never asked anything of anyone other than that, yet me of I had a million things. If you have ever had a boss who tried to micromanage your job, imagine someone micromanaging your life.

  5. yamanmustafa says:

    Just taking the piss out of you being unable to tell someone they’re stupid because of your inept ability to spell just about anything, including stupid. And “beaf”

  6. jerbar120 says:

  9. patoooo2 says:

    Ok. I guess I need to. But the point that you’re a fucking troll. And learn to spell, you sound pretty retarded. Lol? Scum? Yeah sure kid. Whatever you say.

  10. jerbar120 says:

  11. jerbar120 says:

  12. patoooo2 says:

    Shut up. It’s pointless to start fighting in the Internet. Get a life, you damn troll. And yeah I agree. Learn to spell. You sound retarded.

  13. jerbar120 says:

    you also like to get kicks out of demise also. you also make fun of people who cant spell. if i spell that bad why you can understnd what i type then? think dummey. the ponit of typeing or putting out words is to get someone to no what you are talking about. if you understnd me, why beaf on my spelling. your just a stupide fuck that dont have nothing to do at home but to make fun of people.
    go fuck a dead dog give it a blow job.
    your mom must be a fat ass old bitch for to be this way.

  14. RightfullyReticent says:

    Another pointless comment and poor spelling.

    I feel bad for people like you. Getting your kicks off of the demise of other people? Wow. Your life must really suck.

    Nah, I won’t follow your suggestion. I’m pretty sure you’re good at that job, so I’ll let you be the master of your profession, as I’ll continue to do my own thing while you do yours. ;|

    Enjoy the “dead dog”. Hee, hee.

  15. jerbar120 says:

    fuck you and go give a dead dog a BLOW JOB PUSSY.

  16. RightfullyReticent says:

    maybe they are better at detecting it in the states? where did you get your stat though?

  19. psychocornchip says:

    Great to watch this….I wish we had this model available here in NZ. If I had a healthy money tree I’d make it happen. I had the honor of visiting Summit Academies in Jan 2007 & it was awesome to see the kids actually enjoying school. A shame that raystem123 is so harsh, yet based on what? I know we need this type of school here in NZ – one day maybe we’ll get lucky. Keep up the great work is all I can say to Peter & staff @ Summit Academies.

    You are an asshole Dimezza you are tricking the people and that school you have in Akron is a joke.

  21. sophiegromit says:

    Here is a thought to ponder. Autism (all parts of the spectrum) in the Nordic European countries is only one tenth of what it is in the U.S.!!! WHY???

  22. sophiegromit says:

    Asperger’s *IS* a HUGE problem for many kids AND parents!!! Behavioral differences are MANY within the spectrum, and I can tell you it is VERY VERY VERY STRESSFUL to deal with Asperger’s children or teens, in many cases, precisely because their behavior is not ‘normal’. I should know. I have a 47 year old brother who was only recently diagnosed with Asperger’s late in life, and I have a 3.5 year old daughter who has it, and it has greatly affected all of us, in good ways, and bad.

  23. hhhiitt says:

    This guy, like so many others, makes Asperger’s sound like a problem. There are other factorsto consider: such as normal sub-cultures in schools, where kid’s deliberately make it hard for AS people to socialise. Certain social behaviour that’s mainstream is deemed acceptable, and AS communication deviates from it and so isn’t acceptable. We know how to talk – it’s only in a different way. We need to take a good look at ourselves before we judge Asperger’s people.
