OK. Nothing of what I was talking about had to do with school.
it had to do with psychology, parents, society, insurance companies, adult world of the work place.
School is a special world. runs off of entirely different rules than the rest of society.
I abandon my entire line of argumentation because it doesn’t apply to school.
I wasn’t referring to the school system.
I hereby abandon everything I said.
The school system is an entirely different world.
I was not referring to it at all.
I was wrong because I didn’t understand the context that you two were talking within and I was not.
School is a special world all to itself.
before the age of five and after 18 there’s a world outside of school.
I wasn’t referring to the 12 years in between within the context of american education.
again i’m sorry because i had absolutely ZERO realization that you were BOTH referring to american school context until said:
“Kenneth Udut I am not super familiar with the new 1,2,3 system, but I know first hand that kids are being treated as “all the same” at some schools now that Aspergers was eliminated as a diagnosis.”
that completely changed my world.
My “set shifted” and I realized we were talking about two entirely different things all together
lI am disappointed in myself that I entirely missed that you and were speaking exclusively through the American school system context, which is exactly where I wasn’t talking.
there’s probably a clue that I missed.
I scored 50% on the listening and reading comprehension test in school, 99% on almost everything else.
you guys probably both gave a clue that I should’ve picked up on but apparently my brain just didn’t go there until i explicitly heard the word “school” in a context that shifted my thinking.
