Hey. My little sis was diagnosed with Asperger's when she was two. When she was little, it was really obvious. She began talking later than most kids and walking and all that fun stuff. When she was six, her condition began to improve and her helper was able to leave us forever. Well, today's her eleventh birthday and until recently, she didn't know about the diagnosis. She is just like any other boy or girl in the fifth grade. I really hope the same happens with your brother.
MOD: I swear no boys like me because I'm flat chested. They treat me like a little kid! I'm not; I'm 14 and have already gone through everything puberty related except getting boobs. It's so annoying. I swear boys are shallower than girls.

Awww. My Brother Is like that He Is Not Yet Diagnosed. It is very hard - you can't play games with them because they won't understand - you cant move house because he'll get upset. It is soo sad.. You often wonder how they will grow up like...

i feel your pain.... my dad has aspergers syndrome, it's really sad, because they can't really understand emotions or express them. Hamg on there,it might even bring you closer!

oh my gosh, I read the promo for this article and clicked on it immediatly. My bro also has aspergers. Although he seems to have a milder case than your bro, he can be really funny sometimes. The whole having problems with interacting with others sometimes makes my brother say really inapropriate things that my family can't help but laugh at. People with aspergers a lot of the time go on to be really out there geniouses. So keep a look out! My bro spells at a college level and is in 5th while I'm in 6th grade and probably spelled a bunch of things wrong in the comment. Keep your head up and clue your friends in. They'll have a better apreciation for you and they might interact with your brother better than you, just because they know what he's going through and they don't live with him.
