hi all, my name is jess and im 21 yeras old with this disorder aspergers, i just joined this am. nice site alex!! glad u made a place for all to become a community. it took alot of thinking and 2 people who made me think of joining, ljbouchard and exiled sage. over the years since birth in 1984 i ahd differant dxes. first and last was aspergers. when i was 3 it was aspergers then elementry age from 6 to 11 i was givin adhd then from 11 to 17 i was givin pdd nos then from last year of high shcool to now is aspergers. i was diagnosed by school psycologist i was in special ed all my life beucase really early i ahd some late milestones i talked on time and some physical stuff accept walking i didn twalk til i was 6 years old( REALLY late) if i didnt walk for another week or so i probably would have had braces on my legs like forrest gump's. i was thien givin pt and ot and speech therapy and placed in a school for physical disabilities(i was only kid there not in a wheelchair or using walking aids) i was there from prek to 3rd grade. from then ithen was givin the dx of adhd and palced in an elementry school for emotional problems in a speical needs school district (same district as school for physical) they seen i was happy and enjoyed fixing cars and watching my dad and try to help and also go camping this happyness in their eyes they assumed i had adhd badly and i was placed on ritalin. it did was make me appear to be depressed all the time, my handwriting was also very very sloppy. (looks like that of a pre schooler) and i told them so what im happy, im sure if u came off ur bus on friday afternoons and get taken straight into family vehicle headed to campground im sure ud be happy as a clown too on weekends!! ! after 3 yeras of ritalin, ot and some speach i then moved to middle school (local public city run district) and taken off the ritalin to see if i can function and i made out ok and was placed in 6th grade and that swhwn i was givin pdd nos and as my ieps developled they starteed seeing a pattern of likenesses and dislikings and them knowing i came from a speical needs district they kept me in special ed to prevent any problems with academics. then in high school the academic part was getting too easy and i wanted a challenge and this is when my parents had to start fighting iep for correct placement. i feel i should have been tested or givin option to actually try testing to see were they stand in their state's academic levels. i then foudn out the school's interpetiation of developmental was involving mental problems or cant function normally like a nt would. i was givin the slowest possible public high school classes as the grade levels went up the easier it got(12th grade felt like kindergarten!!) i then figured hmm probably handwriting, then i found a way to write neatly with a door closing device and hsowed it to my 12th grade english teacher and she dint like it that much ( hate that teacher !) (*she now is an advocate for an autism chapter in nj) 8O i feel bad for any aspie or autitis in nj who neends help form external evices such as alphasmart(mini laptop) or made their own and approved by child study team, me and another girl who was in a wheelchair (she had spina bifida) were told we cannot use adaptive devices cause we can live our lives wihtout them and to embarraqssing to write with a device meant for pulling commerical doors shut. i told her well if i was a teacher id rather see one of my students who is well behaved and creative use a device not meant for writing to help in the process of writing then rather see their sloppy unreadable chicken scratch, so what i did was told child study team and they allowed me to use it and later i found out that that school if ur a teacher u cannot tell poeple in speical ed tehy cannot use that here or get fired. and also to see the person for who they are not their external things.



this high shcol gave me bull about oders yes, i said it ODERS, they thougth i had BO!! they thought this when i came back in beginning of 11th grade to greet the new school year with the stench of hydrualic oil (like the smell u smell in an auto repair shop) in the halls

sorry still me, and after 7 times of being accused of oil oders by them saying it was body oder i threatened to tell the state building codes official and noticed the oders were spacifially by a few exits that were taken advanteage of by a rip off door company who went alittle too far and had too much time on his hands with school all to himself! one teacher noticed i ahve been unhappy most of the time since the "renovations" to these exits i then finally told him what has went on and he really felt bad for me and told the state of nj building codes official on the school and requested a full inspection and the oil was from closer thing at top and the brand was kinda cheap and after he foudj out he complained to manufacturer and tehy discontinued that model of hardware and cointract with vender was cancelled. anyway i won that war and now if the school wants hardware they have to ask state of nj for permission to do it and when they do get hardware they have to buy direct from factory from well known manufactueres. anyway after graudation i was botheredd by teh military for about a year. the army was tryingto recruit all seniors (without their consent) and what i did was complain and found out they got names from guidance counsellers and i dont think its right they kept bothering me month after month after i told them no im not sure u want a soldier with hypotonia, and aspergers, dysgraphia!! go fly a jet or something or protect our country with ur time not bother people who cant join! so after my dad and my aunt had the problems with them bothering me and my cousin they both went to board of ed to complain and my cousin then got a letter saying that they would like permission to recruit her name and she didnt know what it was so my dad drove me to my aunts house and i told her they did this because guidance was givin the names of senior class for recruitment purposes without asking student or parents first. they had to change the privacy policy and made it now they have to ask the student and parent before talking any action.


in a way im happy i have this disorder eventhough it may have some not so pleasent properties but if it wasnt for aspergers i dont think henry ford or bill gates or thomas edison woul dhave thought of anything to invent. also the narrow mindedness of this disorder has helped me in a way and help correct bad things that should have been done along time ago or thought of another time before doing. believe it or not my great grandfather knew albert einstein!! ! he was best friends with him when they both lived in pennington nj. i want told of this until after my great grandfather's funeral. i was told that if albert was still alive today me and him would have alot in common with eachother and get along well. to this day i dont drive, have a license, work, (would like to do locksmithing but hard without license or vehicle). im not into taking city bus. i do is take care of house and live with my dad.

sorry about my long post all, thanks again alex plank for allowing me to join, pm or aol im me if u want. have a nice day all
