    Thank you for making this film available. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome several years ago (I just turned 57), and although I experience somewhat different symptoms (as is typical with Asperger’s), the gentleman in the film puts words to things I can definitely relate to. My diagnosis has helped explain and validate some things about me, and has also shed light on some of the difficult relational dynamics in my marriage, in my family of origin, and in my workplace. I have been blessed to receive some good support and encouragement, and am living these days with greater self-awareness and self-confidence (I am different, not defective), but also greater appreciation and respect for “neuro-typicals”.
