    Autism won't stop me


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     dapperma's son, Matthew, has high functioning autism. Teachers call him 'Little Einstein' because 'he is so fact-driven. He has been known to correct teachers in facts that they have given to the other students. He is an A/B student and for the most part he always has his hand up first for questions the teachers have -- and most of the time he is correct.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    I will 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: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-768592
    Like she says, Autism is not horrible just different.
