What is Asperger’s? Aspie Spot - Abby

Hi I’m Abby and I have the disorder of Asperger’s. Living with Asperger’s can be tough and crazy! My mom and I started Aspie Spot to help other people learn more about Asperger’s and to hear from others who have Asperger’s. To get things started, I will tell you 10 things about me.  Sometimes people think more about what makes aspies different from others, but I want you to know that mostly I’m just like other kids.

So, what is Asperger’s?  Me, that’s what!

  1. I am 11 years old.
  2. I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 3 fish. I really LOVE animals!!

  1. I have one little 8 year old brother who’s name is Aidan. He can be a BIG pest, but I still love him and I still play with him. He has a disorder called epilepsy which a lot of people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) have.

  1. I am in 6th grade. I was homeschooled for 4th and 5th grade, due to bullying, but I’m now back in public school for 6th grade.

  1. I LOVE to sing and dance! I could sing before I could talk and I still sing all the time.

  1. I am quirky and I’m proud of it!

  1. I have been bullied before. I’m going to have another blog that goes deeper into that so check that out.

  2. I LOVE school! I like to learn and I like making new friends!! I also LOVE my teachers!

  3. I take voice lessons from a professional singer, Lisa Kelly. She used to be in this Irish celtic group of singers called Celtic Woman. I listened to their songs in my nursery when I was a baby.

  4. I really love to laugh and make funny jokes! A lot of aspies take jokes or comments literally, and we have a hard time understanding the joke, but I came along with a GOOD sense of humor!

So these are 10 things about me. Thank you for taking your time and effort in reading this blog! What else would you like to know? I’d also love to hear about your life too!
