Up until now, I have tried to tell about Ben in chronological order. From now on I will be recalling various incidents that happened related to his Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis.
The first day Ben began seventh grade in middle school, his mother found him crying as he was walking home from school. As she listened to him tell about his day, she discovered that the teachers had scolded him because he had not brought his book nor supplies to their classes. The reason was that he could not get his locker open which had a combination lock, and he could not talk to them to tell them why.
What a simple thing this was for most normal students his age, but to him it was a crisis. Ordinary people, both adults and children, have no idea how difficult it is for an Asperger child to communicate.
