Understanding Social Signs With Asperger’sBy Allison Espiritu
Ellis is 13-year-old and was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and is slowly but surely understanding how to socially connect with others. When he was first diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, it definitely affected his social ability to communicate with others and gave him problems with acknowledging body language and facial expressions.
Listen as Ellis and his family describe how far he has come with communication and how classes have taught him how to speak and eventually interact with others. Ellis has his family rooting him on and supporting him and believes that once he understand the world and it’s expectations he’ll be able to cope very well in society. Despite the longer process it has taken Ellis, we all need to understand that he’s still like every other kid!
