    I just finished a year with a child that has Asperger's. He took a lot of my one-on one time. Although I fought hard to get him a 1:1 for the upcoming year, (I had him in third grade), he will be entering fourth grade without an aide. Although every child is different, these are the things I shared with his upcoming teacher:
    -Does not understand facial cues( often would have to say things like, "this is a mad face or happy face.
    -Although he was brilliant in every way, he did not perform.
    -COnstant breaks
    -Needs structure, patience, love and care
    -Does nto deal well with any change

    Be patient and know that you can make all the difference in this child's life.
