Philip Wylie, my Aspergian colleague, challenges non-autistic parents, educators, and partners to think about Apergers autism as a different culture. As non-autistics, we need autistics to guide us in learning how to empower our children, students, and partners.
Philp Wylie is going to be one of our guides today.
Remember that every being on this planet has a purpose and something to offer; also degrees of success need to be evaluated alongside the cards that each individual is dealt in life. And nobody should be made to feel bad about themselves because society wants everyone to behave in a uniform manner.
In early 2012, Philip received a pre-diagnostic assessment from Sara Heath of Autonomy (UK) after a one hour Skype interview / evaluation. In 2013, he obtained a formal diagnosis from a psychiatrist who consults for the UN in Asia.
