From an Echidnas Parent:

Last night my son and I were talking - he said that he thought having "Aspergian traits"
was a positive thing and that he liked himself just the way he is. Again, after the horrendous last year and the way he would tell me that he felt like a piece of trash while he was at school every day, these new positive feeling about himself are making us all so happy. 

He's so looking forward to the Echidnas meeting next week and is just feeling so good about the way things are going. Thanks for finding
room for us in the group! We treasure you all more then I can even begin to say. For everyone who starts school next week, happy first
day! May everyone have a great first day experience and a wonderful year to come!
