Story of an Autistic Teacher

Story of an Autistic teacher: encouraging Aspies beyond their “natural limits”, by Captain Quirk (Autistic, Not Weird blog). A lovely personal account of how the author’s role model/mentor stretched him beyond his comfort zone, and gave him responsibilities- and how this trust encouraged him to work in fields that would usually be considered unusual for an Aspie. He has seen this stretching/responsibility/trust have a similar effect in the children he has mentored.

    • You’re very welcome – thanks for the great article! My eldest is in Girls Brigade and starting to experience a few leadership-type situations- which is beyond her comfort zone, so it’s great to have stories like yours to encourage her.
