A question from GVD:
A friend has a 17-year-old autistic son. Apparently this boy loves his lap top computer. He likes computer based games. The mother does not know if he has every learned any programming languages. He has been"passed through" high school although he probably has failing grades. The primary reason is not being focused on the work, He seems to be very intelligent in some areas. Have you-all any suggestions how the parents could get the boy tested for computer skills. Do you know of any programs--academic, private, commercial,etc for autistic individuals.'?
So if anyone out there in badger-land has any suggestions, please drop me a line at, with 'autism' in the subject so I can keep it from being spammified. Thanks!
