Why teenagers with Asperger's syndrome and special needs are likely to Dropout of High School ?
Can't you see of how very depressing life would be ?
How does people with High Functioning Autism and some form of a learning disability view the World ?
Anxiety and Depression is a number one enemy.

Typical ignorant teenybopper. I have mild Autism, and while I have endured more than my share of mistreatment and outright abuse because of it over the years, life is NOT depressing for me. I live a completely independent life, by most standards. I work full time, have a college degree, drive my own car, manage my own money, and vote and pay taxes just like anyone else. And NO, I didn't drop out of high school. Many people with mild Autism actually DO go on to college, and some of them pursue advanced degrees. I've got a distant relative who's also Autistic, and he has a PhD in engineering and works for NASA.
How do I view the world? Very differently than you do, I am sure. But that doesn't mean my way of looking at things is necessarily bad.
