I am seriously contemplating on having t-shirts made for my son with aspergers syndrome. I was thinking of having written on the back of them "Please be patient with me, I have autism". The reason for doing this is when we are out in public and he is having a hard time and struggling with his day, people can see that he has special needs and not be so judgemental. I have been abused in public a couple of times because of his behaviour or have had death stares at me because he is licking walls or lying on the ground in the middle of a shop. I'm not saying I want to have the shirt on him to justify his behaviour, I just want people to understand that he is not a normal functioning child. Just wondering what people think of this idea?
