This is Carly’s Dad, Carly wants to go to a public high school. we finally had a meeting with a fantastic principal today.
This is what Carly had to say in the meeting.
CARLY: It’s funny because I feel the schools are using labels to hold people back. I am autistic but does that mean I can’t be a part of the same education that someone who is not autistic gets. If Albert Einstein was around in this century, fifty out of a hundred doctors say he would be diagnosed with learning disabilities and A.D.D. The other fifty say he would have been on the autism spectrum. When Albert went to school he was in a one classroom school house and was given a chance to learn. His teacher was quoted saying that Albert did not pay attention to any of the lessons that she taught him. She went on to say that he had to wear the dunce hat more times than she put logs in the fireplace. Yet she still gave him an education that led us to E=mc2. What if he was born in today’s time and put in a segregated school? Would we know what E=mc2 means? Stephen Hawkings was seven years old when he lost all oral ability in his mouth. He made lots of sounds but could not talk. Thanks to some amazing teachers that saw the potential in him, Stephen stayed in a mainstream class and is now one of the smartest men in the world with a P.H.D in science and many papers on black hole phenomenons. But what if the teachers did not let him stay in school? Do you think he really would have met his potential? I am not saying I am going to come up with the next e=mc2 or write a dissertation on black holes but I would like the one thing these two individuals and many more like them had and that is a chance. School is about teaching young minds knowledge and I have proven with my IQ test that I take in all the information that is given to me. So please help me fill my head with knowledge. I am eager to learn and eager to put my own stamp on the world. Please help me do so. Thank you for listening to me.

Well it definably came close. I know I am allergic to aspartame, and it sure does suck considering all the tasty stuff I cannot have. It's not one of those "drink and you'll die" things. It's like "drink this for a week and you'll be talking to people who are not there" sort of neurotoxins.
I treat my brain like a computer. For me that begs to question, what's controlling the brain then?
