Leanne Strong

Leanne Strong was born in Rochester, NY.  At the age of 2 1/2, she was diagnosed with a language disorder, but after further testing, it was determined that she was on the milder end of the autism spectrum (PDD-NOS).  At the age of 15 (almost 16), she was re-diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome (milder Autism Spectrum Disorder).  Leanne hopes that this article will help parents and professionals better understand why their child (or the child they work with) who is on the autism spectrum is always pointing out when he or she feels that something is not fair and hopefully help them figure out different ways to explain fairness.
