Reading Neurotribes

I am focusing on NaPoWriMo, but I can’t let April pass without at least one autism post. Yesterday I started reading Neurotribes.

Quickly I read chapter one to get to
Chapter two about my friend’s son Leo.
He’s autistic, but not like me, oh
No. Aspergers is on the Spectrum too,
But there are differences in what we do
Yet similarities you can’t see so
It is the same road upon which we go
And some shared experiences go through.

How is she a friend, we have never met?
She’s the mother of an autistic son.
Most of my friends are on the internet
And their kids will go where I have gone,
The lessons I learnt they have not learnt yet.
I hope they do better than I have done.
