Re: Some Little League advice really needed!!
That's great advice, but I just don't trust this information not being broadcast to everyone. There is a big social agenda here. The coach, many of the parents, and my family all socialize together at a club for swimming and tennis here.
Would you want your daughter dating someone with autism? Once the cat is out of the bag, his social life is in ruins. Fingers would point, and parents would tell their children to avoid him. He is really one of these fringe kids. He can pass as OK, but an athletic wreck. He actually won the presidential fitness award! He can excell, but in a team social situation seems to fall apart. He does well at school. He may be the next Bill Gates (He really has that inquisitive and creative a mind, and his teachers at his new school think he is outstanding. His teachers at his old school complained that he didn't fit the mold. And this was at one of the best public elementary schools in the entire metropolis.)
I have thought of moving to get away from these scenarios, but anywhere he went, the problems would follow.
I am incredibly thankful that my education and job give me the financial resources to do whatever it takes.
