Asperger kids are so smart intellectually, but need a lot of help socially and emotionally. This boy's mom rocks for loving him for he is and recognizing that he needs to be reminded that he is loved. That was always Mr. Rogers' mantra, "I love you, just for being you." Sounds simple and obvious, but that's how some important things are.
