The story of Dibs reminds me very much of my son. Does any one know what Dibs' ultimate diagnosis was? My highly intelligent son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at the age of six.

I worked with Dr. Axline when receiving my PhD. at Ohio State. The experience was many years ago. I am now 80. She was younger. I would like to locate her.
I will never forget her book. I would like all those in education and social work to read it.
So much research has been done in autisim Incidents have increased. I am working with a county council on families.
I would like to find Dr.Axline.

hola ana, sabes me intente comunicar con usted desde su webpage, pero no me fue posible, sabe hoy en dia estoy teniendo muchos problemas con mi hijo, yo se que el es super inteligente, pero no sabe como expresar lo que el sabe, aparte hoy en dia sigue siendo super callado y me da mucha tristeza que con solo 8 anitos, no tenga amiguitos en su salon de clase y no le diriga la palabra a nadie (solo a su maestra), y como el se reprime mucho en la escuela, por las noches no puede controlar su coraje, porque el sabe que esta mal, pero no sabe como solucionar su problema, me gustaria me pudiera ayudar, porque el hay veces ya no se puede controlar... muchas gracias por su atencion

I just read Dibs and have not been able to get the story out of my mind. As much as I'd love to know what ever happened to this remarkable young man, I'm afraid we'll never know unless he were to reveal himself to us. At the same time, given the confidential nature of the book, I wonder if Dibs himself even knows there is a book about him?
Anyway, I was wondering if there has ever been a film made based on the book. I did a search and found that in 2005 a man named Peter Palliser from the UK wrote a screenplay, but I don't know if it was ever made into a film.
Does anyone have any information about this?

After reading this book, I too, like many of you, wonder what happened to Dibs. I wonder why he hasn't presented himself to us. I have read 100's of biographies and autobiographies in my life (since I was 10) and this one has haunted me. I work for a reading institute and this is one of the books our students read (18 to adult), I was intrigued and had to read it. I have to say I have read some disturbing things on this site regarding Miss A and don't understand how there could be any negativity associated with her and Dibs!?! They were meant to find each other and thank God they did! Shame on you (Dan, I think it was?) for relating this child's life to the VA Tech tragedy. I'm sure you will have some BS reason why this came up but please refrain...THIS is a wonderful story of a young boy's struggle in a big, bad world and a caring, loving woman that entered into it. We should all be so lucky.

I'd like a honest vote, raise of hands how many of you would pick up a book on werewolves, vampires, magicians or cupid.

I am looking for a quotation that outlines the principle that the set-up of the play therapy should be inviting, neat, orderly, and consistent (i.e., everything has a place where it can reliably be found). Does anyone know a reference or a specific statement of the principle?

Who knows what happen to Dibs as a grown up. I think he needs to be in his fifties

What did a lady say to Winston Churchll in one of his famous exchanges? If We were intimates I would place poisen in your drink... to which Churchlll replied to the proper lady that he would be more than obliged to drink it to extricate himself from the affair. There is a biological basis for pathology treatable with medication. And my message to the toughest of the tough... save it For your funerals. Call it my ESCAPE TO FREEDOM.. frahm Dan.
