Getting Ready for High School
Barber, Karra
Exceptional Parent, v38 n9 p23-24 Sep 2008
In this article, the author describes her anxiety concerning her 14-year-old son being able to sit for five consecutive hours and take the entrance exam required for him to attend a private high school, should he decide that's what he wants to do next year. What she discovered about herself through this process is never to underestimate her son based on fears or anxiety she may have about his capabilities or potential. Despite his diagnosis of Asperger syndrome, over the years Thomas has often surprised her with his steadfastness, maturity, and confidence when he's been met with new obstacles.
