He's been asking me some very insightful questions about my nephew just from reading the book.
My niece didn't get diagnosed until her mid 20's. We always knew she was different and had some repetitive behaviors. She seemed to function well in school academically but was always socially awkward. It was sometime during her junior year of college things came to a head and she was asked to leave school. I'd guess it was about a year later she finally got her diagnosis and proper therapy. After reading the book, I could see so much of her in the author. I think if her mother hadn't died of cancer when she was 13, she may have gotten diagnosed sooner.

Nephew made it three years in college before he had his meltdown, we never found the right med combo for him and the headaches he had. The dots connected for us when he was in Junior High and had failed at being re-integrated into the normal classroom.

I find it interesting when teachers and administrators find out a kid has a spectrum diagnosis. They automatically think the kid belongs in special ed, because they have a "diagnosis" and are a bit odd. Not always the case. We've always had odd kids, they just think differently, and that's not a bad thing! These kids need support, routine, knowlege of expectations and what's coming next.

I just finished The Legacy by Katherine Webb.
The Legacy by Katherine Webb | 9780062077301 | Paperback | Barnes & Noble

I love historical fiction and this book had the added benefit of knowing what happened generations later in present day. It's really unlike anything I've read before, although it takes some time to get into the swing of that. This was a very satisfying read, and one I'll long remember.

I've decided I just can't read a book during baseball season. Any other time I can sit down and read for a couple hours and in a few days a book is done. When "play ball" starts it seems my reading time becomes my baseball time. Guess I'll stick with magazines and newspapers until the end of the season...
