My wife had found this Free web site for K-6th. The Life Skill portion may particularly apply (my son likes it). It introduces a fun way to learn other subjects as well.

This is a great concept - it is a for profit company.

Read this article. The model is being studied for other places around the world. All people really need is an opportunity.

Don't be so foolish in life to think that the world must adapt to all needs of every anomaly...it is simply not going to happen...nor should it. It took me a few seconds of research on Google....there is adaptive technology for the color blind so you may look at almost ALL web sites...instead of th...

Being Irish doesn't necessarily carry a negative connotation. Many are of Irish descent...as I suspect he may be. Many people try to guess heritage from small indicators. Especially older folks...it is a way for them to say that they are really observing details in life. It is like a detective game ...

Don’t worry, I am very well versed in the problems of being colour blind and although I say this myself, I’m quite an expert in dealing with the vagaries and problems thrown up by lazy website designers, who like you it seems, believe everyone else should pander to their choice of style over conten...

Sorry I tried to read your blog, but I could not get passed the horrendous formatting problems and the colours. 8O I don't know if the blog shows in a font your computer software doesn't support. It in no way should be horrendous...different...yes...horrendous...no. The color is black text on light...

No, I wasn't aware. It is quite ok. I had secured her permission to make the article ahead of time....I just wasn't aware that she is also here.

I had written an article on Fiona Barnes. She is an Aspie with a lot of common sense. She talks of what an Aspie is from her perspective as one. She attempts to educate Aspies as well as NTs on Asperger's. I had used her Youtube videos to illustrate her story. Fiona Barnes: Inside View Of Asperger's

You must remember...they are paying you to be trained to do what THEY need done...to their specifications. To be able to work as part of a team...to be flexible enough to forgive small bumps in the road to get the larger mission completed. Should people not have it in them to be anything but a free ...

Those test are not designed to determine anything. They know that you cannot find out the true nature of a person by a simple questionnaire. They are designed to cover them legally if you do something way out of line in the future as their employee. This way they can show the civil courts (when the ...

I don't know where you live...but here in CA, it is illegal to remove a child from the school for such reasons. Perhaps you could relay your story to the principal.

Very nice story by the way. My son was always good to all other children when he was attending public school (home schooled now).

My son was initially diagnosed as Autistic at 2.5 yrs. old (he is 10 now). He was given In Home ABA therapy for a couple of years (35-40 hrs. a week).
