I found that article VERY offensive! I am a 13-year-old child with AS, and most of those things don't even apply to me! I mean, when I was first diagnosed, I did have problems with social skills, but that has changed! Clumsy motor skills?!?!? I fold origami as a hobby, and that takes a certain amount of motor skills, and I fold models with a difficulty up to High-Intermediate! I'm also a teacher's aide and a speaker at a college. I have plans for the future, including becoming a geneticist, a musician, and if that doesn't work out, an employee at a classic gaming store. As you can see, I was offended by it, so please consider changing that article.

Asperger's is terribly difficult to diagnose. I have noted that there are many classical musicians and artists (who have, obviously, superb motor skills), with Asperger's. And there are many who are not especially socially awkward (any more than anyone else). Gingermint 05:55, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
