The only way to help the Asperger's truth cause is to become educated yourself. Once you know every corner of the issue and how it manifests itself you can effectively fight for the rights of those who are misdiagnosed every day.
Autism and mental "syndromes."
Tony Attwood, one of Asperger's Syndrome's most famous scholars, writes kind-hearted and down-to-earth books, which, of course, do not tell the whole story about Asperger's Syndrome, but his warm demeanor and open minded disposition makes for a gentle introduction to the average AS psychologist's side of the story. However, he does promote lies and the idea that Asperger's exists.
Your Little Professor
An extremely condescending site harboring assumptive views (as evidenced by the name), it implies that inability to "be a teen" and the social impairment that comes with the inability is worse than being falsely labeled with a syndrome and made to undergo therapy.
The "I Don't Have Asperger's" link, on the left of the page, contains -dare we say it?- Orwellian statements about "not following doctors' orders".
This site has links to pages with extremely untrue statements (check out the Aspie Women link on the left). It claims that all female brains are wired to be more empathetic than all male brains. ALL human beings are meant to be empathetic in a civilized society. No exceptions.
This site mentions the tendency of "AS" children not to give respect to authority figures unless they have earned it.
A site dedicated to educating parents about AS and autism. Provides many articles and even has a bookstore link.
Autism, Asperger's Syndrome
A large site with a TON of links such as "common causes of behavioral problems" and "eating and feeding issues". This site tends to empathize with the idea that authority figures should, in fact, ask children to do things, not tell them.
This site mentions a minimum IQ for being diagnosed with AS. In other words, there are persons too unintelligent to be diagnosed. Is this saying something?
A somewhat sparse overview of Asperger's Syndrome (called here a disorder). The "other psychological problems" link leads to a page mentioning the usual "questioning authority" trait.
This site actually considers the "inability" of an "AS" child to follow peer pressure a positive thing. Good for WebMD!
Among other good things, this ADHD site makes the insightful connection between gifted children and children with "syndromes". Scroll down a bit on the home page until you find the bold lettered heading: "Here are some facts that are being withheld from parents that could possibly alter their life decisions and outcomes." It is a bit further down from the ads on the left.
Sanctuary sites for thinking people.
An excellent site for those who hate school. It provides a mental haven for those who want to quit, and strategies for class survival.
Separation of School and State
A site supporting private education and the belief that government has no right to dominate education.
The true treasure of this site is not necessarily its actual views, although those views are very fresh and different from the mainstream. The gems to be found on Capitalism Magazine are its dedication to reason, individualism, and positive view of life. Article 1 and Article 2 deal with morality. However, some of the philosophy is not good.
The Ayn Rand Institute
Some people agree and others disagree with Rand's particular views, but her promoting of reason and individualism will especially appeal to "Aspies" and to anyone "overly" rational or "strongly" moral who feels marginalized in today's culture. Just make sure to take her ideas about altruism with a grain of salt.
New World Order/One World Government.
Campaign For Liberty
Ron Paul's site, espousing anti-big government views. He is one of a few anti-New World Order politicians.
The Libertarian Party opposes one world government, and too big a federal government for nations.
A site which publishes Christian comic tracts, Jack Chick publications often foretell of a coming one-world-government and oppressive political measures against freethinking Christians. Although it is specifically Christian, the points the tracts often make can apply to any oppressed political minority. See "The Last Generation" ,or "The Trial".
Although we are largely a technological culture, books are still in high demand and are certainly useful. Many books on intelligence, individualism, Asperger's Syndrome, morality, and a long lost way of living whose practitioners modern psychologists have forgotten about.
Introduce intelligent children to the authors who can open their minds and save their souls!

It is very important that parents of intelligent children be aware of the ideas promoted by this site. It is even more important that intelligent and inquisitive children be made sure that there is nothing wrong, or even special, about them, that their way of thinking is natural, healthy, and desirable. This will literally spare them years of psychological and emotional torture and depression.
It will also help them improve their ability to be confident in social situations, by instilling them with the attitude that their social skills are the most healthy and natural ones, not those of bullies, stale conformists, and apathetics. Their social skills are the ones which others should conform to.
By educating those who at risk for being diagnosed, you will also be preventing them from killing any spark of enthusiasm and creativity they have, which our society needs to survive. Feel proud when you direct a young thinker to this site or to any similar one.
