    Quite a few people have these Rubbermaid-style storage bins, and at least two of them blew away...

    That brown house lost a shutter, and the one next to it almost lost its mailbox!

    Charlie,
    Forgive me if I'm asking too much in a public forum but, when did you receive your diagnosis? What was the experience like? Were your parents supportive of the diagnosis, and how did they succeed in supporting your social development?
    I ask because I work with children on the Autism spectrum, and overall, their parents are pretty top notch, but always looking for perspective.

    Not a problem at all! That's what this thread is for!

    Diagnosed in late 1998 at age 9 by a pediatrician in Virginia Beach. I just know him as "Dr. Casey". I did not find out until August or September 2000, at the age of 11, while snooping through my mom's files. My parents were very supportive of the diagnosis, though I was a wee bit pissed off about their decision to keep it from me. They said they kept it from me because I was so young and they saw no need to tell me at the time. Looking back, I kind of understand this. My parents were definitely top notch, but the problem I encountered in public schools was being treated like a retard, for lack of a better term. I had several genuinely great teachers, and thankfully I was never in any of the classes for low-functioning special needs students. However, I was bullied a lot in school because I was (A) the new kid, and (B) "different" in the eyes of the other kids. The reason I was almost always the new kid is because my dad was in the Navy for 25 years and we moved lot.

    My Tacoma was "attacked" by a rogue trashcan! Luckily I was able to avoid hitting it...

    Gotcha. Did you receive any additional services or accommodations in school? The social side of elementary school; and any school for that matter, is difficult enough for neurotypical kids to navigate. There is so much to learn in a short time, and so many conflicting angles to process. Congrats on making it out relatively unscathed.

    I had an IEP (Individualized Education Plan). I was often in smaller classes and got extra time on tests, among other things.

    Those neighborhood pictures you posted yesterday are creepy af. Huge, identical houses, with no one outside. Looks like an emergency evacuation happened.
