A thank you letter to our writers

Dear Editor,

I’d like to thank the young lady for the well thought-out article, Feb. 10, 2016 on Hans Asperger.  As a retired registered nurse, who happened to have a son with Asperger’s Syndrome, I am well aware of it.

There is so much misinformation on the Internet and even in books by alleged “experts,” who have studied all of two or three patients with it that it was refreshing to read an article from someone that tried to see different sides of a person’s life.

Asperger’s Syndrome, as she most likely knows, is one form of high functioning autism and even within this disorder there can be differences with the people who have it; the same as with not having the same exact symptoms of heart attack some may have chest pain, others may experience arm pain with nausea instead.

I think this young lady will go far. She has a good head on her shoulders.  I hope she never loses her objectivity.
