Boy…it sucks not having dyslexia because if I had dyslexia…then I would be double-gifted and I would be able to do everything at hyperspeed AND be able to do it basswise ackwards. Hey…maybe I can go for the trifecta and have a bad case of OCD with dyslexia.
I apologize if I offended anyone with this particular post and I especially apologize to anyone who is dyslexic and having trouble reading this post. The following is specifically for those who have this particular “gift.”

Is Asperger’s The New Black?
It’s not easy having a gifted child – especially when every other child is gifted too
There’s a veritable race to define our children as different, as special or gifted. I mean it’s all gone a little bit hyper these past few years, hasn’t it? This rage against the ‘normal’? “What’s normal?” I keep being asked. “My children!” I cry. Both of them are pretty much average. Not too bright. Not too dumb. “Oh you poor thing” is the condescending reply. “You mean they don’t even have Auditory Processing Disorder? Aren’t they even allergic to nuts?”
The parental urgency to have your child stand out in the competitive child market has established a crazy race to the bottom. Wild-child? A misfit? Aspergers? Gifted? ADD? ADHD? APD? What’s your baby’s Unique Selling Point?
