Kids with aspergers syndrome have a hard time getting to grips with compulsory state education systems because they are designed by neurotypicals for neurotypicals. They take no account that we are not all born equal. Our brains are not wired like those of the vast majority of society. We do not think the same way, so we do not learn the same way, so the compulsory state education systems do not cater for us, so we do badly in them, so we kill ourselves because we feel so ashamed that we are unable to be as good as the other kids, and because we get bullied and abused by them and our teachers, who call us disparaging names like 'retard.'
What is the government doing about this? Paying lip service! That is all! How many Members of the UK Parliament turned up for a recent debate about catering for us in education? Eleven! Out of 650! Anything was more important to the other 639 MPs than we are!
Any wonder we lose hope? Better dead than considered so unworthy of their time by so many Members of Parliament they could not even be bothered to get out of bed for us!
