Article: When should I tell my son about his diagnosis of Aspergers?

Hot on the heels of my recent articles comes Dave Angel's take on the subject;

When should I tell my son about his diagnosis of Aspergers?

I get the feeling that Dave supports the idea of telling children in an age-appropriate manner. He also cautions against the self-image issues which can arise from allowing a child to think that they are "defective".

It's critical that if and when you do tell your child, that you make the experience a positive one.
