I sit here thinking about Dakota. Dakota was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism in 2007 although a few of us question whether or not he has Aspergers. I am a little confused as back in 1994 Aspergers was referred to as High Functioning Autism and a lot of symptoms that Dakota does display do fall into Aspergers. When we go for the work up in Madison I will find out exactly where he is on the spectrum. Not that it really matters to me as with or with out the label Dakota is my sweet loving, complicated boy.
I am still looking into researching the difference between to the two. I watch this video on Aspergers and say this is Dakota right down to the T.
I also found another video about Aspergers and Anxiety and I really like how the lady explains the difference between aspergers and neurotypical people. Right now most of you know that I am battling the school to try and do something about the stress and anxiety I see in Dakota at school as well as his reactions at home. Maybe this will help explain the anxiety a little more. .
