Hi!
My name is Linn, and I am a 24 year old student at the University of Oslo, Norway, majoring in special needs education.
I am so lucky to have a wonderful brother with AS, (he was diagnosed six years ago, and is now 18 years old) - and beacuse of him, I decided to go into the field of pedagogy.

In our family, it is more common to have a psychiatric diagnosis than being "normal" - I'm Bipolar II and have Nonverbal learning disabilities (so yeah, I can definitively relate to being a social wierdo), and ADHD; and my two brothers have AS + ADD, and ADHD + Tourettes - we usually say that ICD-10 / DSM-IV is like our family album :lol:


Well, that's all I have for now! :)

Hello linnkki. Welcome to WP. :)

Oslo, eh? I fancy visiting Norway at some point but the expense rather puts a damper on that... :(
