Need help getting $$ for a lawyer for autistic son

Well my asperger's son had a major meltdown which the police were called into school (incident happened at home - but because son had marks on him school reported it).  He is being charged with 2 counts of simple assault and I am in need of an autism advocate/lawyer (as his public defender knows nothing) .  I have never asked for money,,. but if you are still a reader of this blog I am asking for you help.  Whatever you can afford cause I know we are all hard up on money.  I do not want my son treated as a criminal.  The rage was fueled by a low blood sugar (he was recently dx'd in March having type 1 diabetes) and coupled with his autism the rage was bad.  Please help anyway you can and I thank you in advance

I want to be a doctor someday to help other kids/adults with Autism. It will be helpful because then those that are autistic will know I have been there. I will not let Autism stop me and I stand up for Autism on April 2. My mom is my biggest advocate. See her ireport for this assignment at: 
Like she says, Autism is not horrible just different.

Happy New Year

My first post of the new year.  Mom was asking what my new years resolution was.  Even though i love my DS so much - I said i would not play it all the time.  Isn't that a good one - my mom thought so.  Actually I would like to post at least once a week on here. I will share with all how I see me from the outside looking in - I mean that is the reason for this blog right!  I also want to try to get 4 A's on my report card this year to make distinguish honor roll.  I am hoping everyone has a healthy and happy new year.  Thanks for reading.

Lab Work - preparing to have blood drawn

Getting blood drawn for routine lab work is not all that scary.  I have to go every three months and once again Ms. Emma was my phlebotomist (the person that draws the blood).  Unfortunately she is leaving this location and moving to Missouri.  I am going to miss her so much.  Over the last 6 years she was the one who took my lab work the most.  I gave her my favorite squeeze frog to remember me. I took a video with Ms. Emma showing how blood was drawn step by step.  To prepare for your lab work remember these steps:
  • Take your favorite squeeze toy to help your vein get pumped up (My favorite toy was the squeeze frog - of course)
  • Ask for butterfly needle because it is the smallest needle and hurts the least
  • Ask for a cool band aid
  • Never bend your arm after the draw
  • And the best part is to ask to go to McDonald's as a reward after you're done!!  Be prepared in case you can not go because your mom or dad has other plans.  Maybe compromise for another time!

I am almost 13 years old and I have Asperger's.  I started this blog as a goal setting project for school.  The purpose of this blog is to let the world know that I view my Asperger's differently than other people that see me. There are many of us on the autistic spectrum who are really cool.  Did you know that the experts are now saying for every 1 boy out of 100 one is on the autistic spectrum.  So chances are there is at least one kid in your school that has autism or Asperger’s. 

I was diagnosed at the age of 9 with Asperger’s. I am really no different than any other kid in my middle school.  Over the next few weeks I will be doing video blogs that show this.  Although you might think I am different - deep inside I am just like you - but have different ways of expressing it.

My first video blog was going for my lab work.  I have to have blood drawn every 3 months due to the medications I am on.  I thought it would be great to have others see how easy it is and guess what - it doesn't hurt.  Take a look at it now in my next blog!  Hope to see you back here.  Don't forget to add me to your RSS feed as I will be updating quite regularly.
