Question/discussion point from Rachael:
"I have two questions I'd love to see what the community on this page share in response to. 1. What comments from a psychologist, either directly to the child or to a parent have made them realise this is not the psychologist for them? 2. What role model have you found for yourself or your child that has given you or them a powerful direction and/or hope that they can have a successful and meaningful life?
A psychologist told me she had said to my son that she doesn't have aspergers and wouldn't want it and she can help him to make it more invisible. Horrified and against what i am explaining to him about diversity and the gifts that his brain has, i would not trust that psychologist with my son again. I called her to explain what she meant and what her strategy is, but weeks later, she never called me back.
Thank you for all your dedication to providing opportunities for the community to share and interact.
