@ Doctor Adorah:Asperger syndrome may not be nearly as crippling to one's ability to function in society as some of the more serious diagnoses in the autism spectrum, but I do think what merits "special coverage" here is the way in which the game is played. Clearly the mother believes her child's condition to be in need of treatment, and to use WoW to assist the child's development is something unconventional and worthy of 15 minutes of fame.It's certainly no fun for anyone to be defined by their condition, and I understand where you're coming from here. But there's a point when brushing things off as normal, or not in need of special attention, isn't a very good plan for securing someone's ability to participate in society in the long run.
