My seven year old son Julian has Asperger's Syndrome. He is also a handsome, completely "normal" looking little boy. He has a good handle on his emotions (for the most part) now, but will still throw the occasional tantrum in public. When he was a toddler and unable to speak to express himself these tantrums were much worse. I left many a cart full of groceries at the local stores. The stares and remarks from other adults about how my child was behaving were rude and uncalled for. I felt I had to explain his condition, or look like I was a terrible parent. I agree it may have been easier for he and I both if he didn't look like a "normie" kid who just has a bad attitude, as opposed to a usually sweet and loving boy who couldn't express himself.

It should be noted that Asperger's/autism, in and of itself, has no effect upon a person's physical appearance.
