Tips for Young Adults

“We were Aspies before it was so cool”

When CBS’ popular “Amazing Race” sets off on its next global trek in two weeks,  Zev Glassenberg, who has Asperger’s, will be a contestant. One of the most critically acclaimed Fox Searchlight films right now on the big screen is “Adam,” about a toy engineer (Hugh Dancy) with Asperger’s who falls in love with the girl next door. And TV sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” is about a group of Aspie wannabes. Everywhere you look in popular culture today you find greater understanding and appreciation of the specials gifts of people with Aspergers. (“Albert Einstein, Thomas Jefferson, Mozart — probably.”AlbertEinstein) Now is the time to build on those gains. So work hard and keep achieving. There’s truth in the cliche: The sky’s the limit.
