I am proud of both of my children as I have mentioned before on this blog. This week I am particularly grateful for and proud of how mature my daughter has become. We enrolled her in a prestigious private school when she was five. This was before she had the diagnosis of Asperger’s.
She has done extremely well academically, yet we had recent struggles related to past bullying at her school and years of being misunderstood. She made a difficult decision this week and handled it with great maturity for any child who is fifteen years old, let alone a fifteen year old on the autism spectrum. We have encouraged her to become her own advocate and she has. She even met with and politely informed the Dean of her school of her decision and the reason behind it. Both her dad and I are so proud of her and stand behind her decision 100 percent.
