How about a friendly game of chess?

From a talk I just gave at the New England Conference on the Gifted and Talented:





Who is to say that an intellectual, or collaborative, or competitive exchange is any less meaningful than the more emotional ways in which more typical people connect? (Raising a Left-Brain Child)

WAIT. Chess is not a "normal" way to interact??? A game that has been around for centuries??

What other things are going to be marginalized as unusual or not mainstream?

And PS... yes, our children's hospital doesn't do "therapies," unless you need a psychologist to talk about how you feeeeel about your autism. Here's your diagnosis and a link to Autism Speaks; good luck to ya. It's wrong, isn't it...
