And I've met people who were very well educated and well attuned to society who had eating disorders or drug problems. That doesn't mean I would recommend pursuing either.

Aren't you better off just getting on Youtube/Google and searching, "handling kids with Aspergers" ? This is dumb.

so apparently this is a desperate measure because of budget cuts



We just don't have enough resources and training to deal with this. But we are trying, because that is what teachers want to do.
"I think teachers have been covering these issues, trying their hardest to cover these issues for years.
"I'm a secondary school teacher and I think the issues are lack of training, lack of resources, and again that's down to obviously budget cuts."

Gotta agree with kinga. It's not professional but its better than sitcoms.

"Due to budget cuts we do not offer formal training for handling autism, but we encourage our staff to educate themselves independently, and will provide a list of resources for that purpose. We hope in the future yada yada yada". It can't be that hard

Guys. Most aspies ain't that bad. The worst case scenario is Chris Chan or some /pol/ fodder. Also, fictionalized portrayals of mental/developmental conditions being used to supposedly "emulate" them irl? Not really, not at least entirely. They'd be better off attending a psychology class.

Pennsylvania, 24, that avatar...I am guess you are Aeb reborn?


Yep, and for security reasons. Made the mistake of losing or forgetting to write down new email and CR passwords after I changed them. I was probably only a letter or two off, but I couldn't figure out what I changed them to. I decided to nullify the risk of my CR payment info being stolen. After making a new account and explaining my embarrassing situation to CR staff, my old account was nuked in less than twelve hours.

I think the TBBT is a great show but I don't think it's ideal for a situation such as that.

I actually really like the Big Bang Theory, along with the rest of my family. Probably because my older brother is a lot like Sheldon.

But regardless, using that show to teach people how to deal with kids with Asperger is a really bad idea.

Ahhh, love TBBT. Although after season 7 it becomes utter garbage due to all that relationship/marriage/havingkids crap.

As I'm currently playing Watchdogs 2, and it has an autistic character, I'm clearly knowledgeable on everything to do with the autistic spectrum!

Anyway, as much as I love TBBT, this is obviously a stupid idea that no sane, rational person would get behind.

I find Big Bang Theory funny and watch it every now and again, but treating it as an educational analog for just about anything in real life sounds like a terrible idea.

There is absolutely no way that they could properly understand the needs of children with aspergers from watching TBBT. Not only do their needs differ vastly per person, it makes the teachers more likely to stereotype them based on the little they know about it. Heck, even doing a quick google search would be more beneficial than this.
