April is Autism Awareness Month. I am the mother of a 21 year old son with Asperger syndrome. All of you know someone who is on the spectrum. Think about that person you know who is socially inept, the "odd duck." Those with Asperger's want to connect with others but lack the skills for small talk. They find it nearly impossible to decipher body language that we "normal" people innately understand. I would ask you to be kind, tolerant and accepting of those on the spectrum. It will be appreciated more than you will ever know.
