There is some great literature and information out there written about and by children & adults with Asperger's syndrome. It will definitely give you some perspective and hope when thinking of your child with AS all grown up. A good place to start is with Tony Atwood's work for information about Aspergers. A good book written by a middle schooler with Aspergers is called, "Freaks, Geeks & Asperger's syndrome". It is important to remember that Aspergers is part of the autism spectrum disorder and affects individuals differently with respect to severity.

i have 2 boys with aspergers,i believe that they do get a little better as they grow as they learn as they go so in a sense yes , but aspergers would still be there .my son has changed so much that a school principal congratulated me on how far he has come , but its not just me that needs a pat on the back its also him , so with the right attitude and alot of love they can go very very far , there are no limits .
