    Thanks for sharing this Jerome. I have personal experiences with this in my family, and it was only after attending a workshop on aspergers that I realised, a lack on identity for ‘our young someone with aspergers’ also meant identifying himself as gender fluid or transgender. The fallout being anxiety, school phobia and depression. I’m not sure the school he left at 15, was quite ready for this – environmentally or socially. I would go a little further to say, we need lots of new learning in this area with transparent conversations in our schools and a vision towards creating a conscious movement in our wider communities right across Aotearoa as well.
