I am becoming increasingly concerned that intellectually gifted children are being denied opportunities because they are being labeled either Asperger's or high functioning autism. Within the last year I have talked to several parents, and I was disturbed by what they said. One mother called me and was very upset that her six-year-old son had Asperger's. She then went on to tell me that his IQ was 150. I replied that before people knew about Asperger's Syndrome, their child would have received a very positive label of intellectually gifted. - See more at: http://www.iidc.indiana.edu/index.php?pageId=598#sthash.DL2DrZbG.dpuf

Teachers: If you do not currently teach a child with Asperger's Syndrome you probably will very soon! Statistics now show that 1 in 88 individuals has an autism spectrum disorder like Asperger's Syndrome. This diagnosis has become more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike boys than girls. By law, these students must be mainstreamed in general education classes to the maximum extent possible. Research has proven that AS students think and learn differently and as a result, can sometimes present unique and challenging classroom behaviors.
