My present employer specializes in helping kids with all types of learning disabilities, and I have sat in on several IEP meetings for these types of kids over the years as well as construct lesson plans that keep them involved with what they are trying to learn.

In 2010 I worked with a high school student who had Aspergers, in order to do ceramics. I found him to be creative, smart, funny, and innovative.
Currently (2013) I work with another young man with Aspergers who is in Junior High and we are doing Digital Photography. He is a gentleman, picks up on things easily, smart, and we have a lot of fun while studying and practicing photography.
So I have had the ability to work with both of these students in regular subjects and both have been successful in what they are studying.
