Thomas Jefferson. Emily Dickinson. Bill Gates. Marie Curie. The kiddo at your kitchen table or in the second row of your classroom.
And me - Asperkids creator, Jennifer O’Toole.
What on earth do your Asperkid and I have in common with these legends of history? Intensity, limitless curiosity, passionate devotion to ideals, bright minds, beloved routines. And more than our fair share of social goof-ups.
It’s called Asperger Syndrome. It isn’t a disease. It isn’t a disability. Asperger’s is a personality profile of aptitudes and attitudes. Neither right nor wrong, it is simply who we are. But we know you may find us a little tough to understand sometimes. (That’s OK — we sometimes think you’re a bit confusing, too!)
Enter Asperkids. We’re here to “translate” between young people with Asperger Syndrome and the neurotypical world around them. Through internationally-celebrated books, private consultations, public presentations, and carefully-selected resources, our goal will ALWAYS remain the same: to unlock the precious, precocious potential of Asperkids everywhere.
