Learn a foreign language
Never put limits on what a person with Asperger’s can do. They might just fool you. For years, some educators and parents assumed that learning a foreign language might be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for an Asperger’s person. But students, teachers and linguists are finding that’s often not true. In fact, many excel because of the way language is broken down when it is taught. “It may be that learning a foreign language makes forms of knowledge and language use explicit, whereas these forms remain implicit when learning one’s mother tongue,” says Margot Prior in her book “Learning and Behavior Problems in Asperger Syndrome.”
