Dear Dr. Swanson,
It seems odd that, until a few weeks ago, I had never replied to any of your e-mails; but here I am sending my second reply just a few weeks after the first one!
But I just had to tell you that this is perhaps MY FAVORITE e-mail of any you’ve sent so far!!! Not because any of my children have Asperger’s, but because your explanation of how to deal with it could apply to any behavior-related “disorder.” I especially appreciated your positive take on the concept of putting a “label” on a child; this is normally painted in a very negative light, but your suggestion to use it as a “tool” is so right on target!
Thank you, and may God bless you for the great work you continue to do!
