Quoting lolajessup:" So I looked at the girl I suspect in my class and she definitely has those features. She looks very similar ... [snip!] ... her. So I wanted to pm someone her tuned navies to see if they thought they aligned with a high functioning form of autism."
I don't have a child on with Autism but Billy's aunt is a nationally recognized figure in the field and she's a damn God-send to the families she works with. Because of her, I know about 50 or so children with wide ranging severity. Many are high functioning and many are very severe. I feel pretty knowledgeable on the subject because of her.
