Kensley Loudermelk's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:13 PM

This article was unique, as it was written from the perspective of a man with Asperger syndrome. Though he is not a school-aged man, I learned a lot from the article and how teachers can communicate and build relationships with their students, particularly those with Asperger syndrome. The article included a quote by Hans Asperger describing how a person with Asperger syndrome is sensitive to the personality of a teacher and can be instructed or guided, but only if this teacher is kind and caring toward the student. I also learned a lot about how a person with Asperger syndrome often misses the non-verbal communication signals that are used in conversation, so it is important to speak and make clear statements about the message being conveyed.
