We need to confront these misconceptions which do more harm than good. They put children in boxes, reducing them to a meaningless check-list of symptoms and antisocial behavior.

Of course with the right support, children with this condition can learn to use their unique traits to accomplish goals others would struggle to achieve. For them, being antisocial is not a choice.
