So my name's Mia. When I was in kindergarten my parents talked to my teacher at a conference and she suggested try should go see if I could be diagnosed with aspergers. It turns out I was autistic, and I'm the only one in my family who is really. I didn't really know about it til about 5 years later after having some difficulties with other kids in school and my learning. I couldn't do math that well and I had a very hard time reading and writing. I was bullied as well and I wasn't good at socializing. My parents decided to put me in a private school for other kids with learning disabilities like autism and now I'm really really good at things I couldn't do before like solving a "difficult" pretend CSI case my grandparents gave me for Christmas in less than an hour, or doing everything in my head for math and using a larger vocabulary (in a good way) and I can read music and play saxophone now and it was my first year this past year and I got some really good awards for it. And now I've moved again and my parents and I are discussing my reasoning for easy possibility of boarding school within the next two years during highschool because I really really want to, and I'm really really excited :)
