(and other fruits of our labor…)
We love lemons! They have a truly distinct taste and add a ton of flavor to our lives. Lemons also help describe Asperger’s traits in an empowering way. It’s not a disorder or a disease, it’s just a different kind of brain… unique, fresh, and innovative.
We also like to say, “If you’ve met one Aspie, you’ve met one Aspie.” Traits associated with Asperger’s manifest in different ways for individuals on the spectrum, and the idea of a continuum gives us an easy way to illustrate these differences.
It starts with a glass of water with a lemon wedge on the side, then lemon in the water, then lemonade, a lemon, and a lemon tree. These traits aren’t better or worse, just less or more.
