A job for my asperger son

november 5 2009

He did it!

He was asked for a job!!!
Asked....
In this time...

He, my son with asperger syndrome and ADD, had a terrible time at school.
People telling he was weird, should be more social, should walk normal, should talk more.

He was hiding in a fantasy world with trains, and trains and more trains.

And then suddenly he dropped out of school.
We didn't see it coming because the school didn't bother to inform us properly.

For a few months he tried another school, and that was it.

At home he was busy computering, trying out programming and then even started to take computers apart.
With each month that passed we were more aware that he should study in that direction.

We found a school for individual teaching, he applied and studied so hard that he did more in a shorter time than anyone else there.

For practical assignments he had to work at a real business.
It took a long time to find a place for him, but all went well in the end.

And now, suddenly, he's asked for a normal, steady job.

Wow!!
