I don't know whether I can be considered to be qualified to advise people about how to deal with their children as I am only a child myself (even though someone said - I can't remember who that the best experts on AS are the people with AS themselves), but if I can give any advice at all I would say that it is much better to bring up the child so they know and accept at an early age that they are different from other people and why.

A teacher is a good example of this. In some ways all teachers need to know is that a child has a problem in certain areas. After all, if they don't know, they can't help. This is very true in infant or junior school. In my opinion, things change when you get to senior school. Teachers are people - some good and some bad (in fact some seem to be downright sadists) - and maybe it is not a good thing for all to know straight away that you have a problem. Some teachers are just nasty and will jump at the chance of making fun of someone.
