I see you met Dory. Just finished Switched On. Very interesting. Our grandson has been diagnosed with Asperger's, which is a term that's being phased out, I think. He is such an interesting person and I struggle to understand him. He is deeply sensitive and from another planet, somehow. He just turned 14. We hope the best for him, but we just don't know. We just don't know.

i just finished your book Look Me In The Eye. Such a great insight to help us understand our 14 year old grandson. He is sweet, good hearted, smart, sad, lonely and spends as much time with his Nana and Papa as possible. he is passionate about video games. Girls love him. boys bully him. His school does not stimulate him or prepare him for life. perhaps onky life can do that. a doctor friend of ours who is on the spectrum days that add long as he has a sense if humor he will be ok. i hope he's right. Philip has a sense of humor all right!

Have you seen the movie Temple Grandin? It's probably at your local library, might be helpful.
