Students with Asperger's can have as many problems with life as children who are autistic. As it says in the article he also "has ADHD and a receptive learning disorder," which coupled with Asperger's can make many things hard. For one, children with Asperger's already have trouble with communication. Among other things they cannot comprehend normal conversation cues most other children can. Couple this with a receptive learning disorder (causes MORE communication comprehension problems) and you often have a child you has trouble connecting with their peers and teacher.Also, this failure to comprehend language and greatly reduce how well children can learn. And ADHD causes compulsiveness and obsessiveness that causes even more problems in school.You of all people, (you say you have Asperger's) should not label others. Just because it affects YOU mildly means nothing.Coming from a Special Education Major (third year working in schools) and an Aunt to my niece with Autism who also plays on my WoW account. :)
