Thinking differently can take you far!

Jacob Barnett is a 14 year old with Asperger's Syndrome. He is an astrophysicist and may possibly win a Nobel Prize. His personality is infectious and his message is clear. Stop learning and start thinking!
Remembering back to when my son was diagnosed with Asperger's, I was terrified. All I could think was "Now what??" "What is he going to do?" Absolutely petrified for my son.
Well, here I sit, with my son Ryder, 7 years later. Ryder is a different thinker and sure has his own unique perspective. He creates the most amazing pieces of art. Mind-blowing! Those very same questions are still running through my head,but the tone is full excitement for what is coming next. "Now what?" "What is Ryder going to do???" I can't wait to see what my son is going to do. Can't wait! Think different, and you don't know what the future holds.
