I found this article very interesting. Both for the fact it’s about a young lady with autism and because she wasn’t diagnosed with autism until she was 21. The age most are considered to be an adult.
The article is entitled “Diagnosed With Autism at 21—and OK With It” by Clare Ansberry at the Wall Street Journal. Unfortunately it’s unavailable without a subscription to the newspaper. You can however, check it out at your local library, if they have the Journal in paper. I believe it was in Wednesday’s paper (May 13, 2015).
