Is Aspergers A Secret?

Have you told your child with Asperger's about... their Asperger's?  Will you?
We have a lot of discussion among our moms about this very topic.

While most of our moms end up telling their children about Asperger's, they sometimes don't tell anyone else.  Some will tell the teachers, but it will end there.  For each family and situation, the needs are different.

I have to say, the day my son told his entire 3rd grade class he had a form of autism was a good day.  It opened up some great discussion for his classmates.  It also gave them a reason to have compassion instead of wondering about his quirks.

Here is an excellent article from Dan Coulter about the advantages of awareness.
