I have a friend I went to highschool with. He was in the "autistic" class. He is very "low" functioning, by that, I mean that he didn't talk until around age 8. Pottytraining was somewhere around the same time. He didn't appear to learn, he would basically spin and bang his head. He was, and still is, OBSESSED with airplaines. That is all he would talk about. His parents were told his future entailed perminant placement in a group home. In the 80's, I guess there was not alot of hope for those with Autism. He went to Osceola high school, that is where I met him. I thought he was amazing, his knowledge of airplanes was unreal almost. He can not add or subtract without a calculator. He can not read past a 1st grade level..but I'm sure he could fly a plane, no exaggeration. Anyway long story short, and through many struggles and a goal to live independently, he does. My friend lives on HIS OWN. He works full time at the airport doing baggage. He rides the bus, and understands the routes. He doesn't have many, if any, people that hang out with him, because he does have severe lacks in social skills and melts down frequently. With that said, he is happy, and living on his own. He is happy and proud. Very Happy I am very proud of him!
