Ahem! I happen to have an Autism Spectrum Disorder: Asperger's. >:( I didn't get diagnosed until I was 23 and I actually do need a regimen of medications to function. I also have ADHD--among other problems (there's a reason why it's called Asperger's *Syndrome*; it's not just one problem but several all at once). We are not dysfunctional. So many aspies learn to work around our handicap it still takes a specialist to properly diagnose us. We are hardly dysfunctional.
Hmm ADHD, bipolar, schizo, dyslexic....throw in Autism and you have our Modern Public School System's goals for our children and getting rich off kickbacks from Big Pharma. Drug them more, teach them less.
