In support of my son who was being bullied in school and afraid kids would do it again in his new school because he's "weird", the autism community came together and parents started sharing their own stories of being weird.

Hmmm, is this supposed to be a link to somewhere?  If so, it isn't working.  I'd like to read it :)

He did! And a week later it was spring break. :p LOL
