Remarkable is the story of a schoolgirl who was refused admission to a music school in the Alimos district, because “all the seats were occupied.”
The 13-year-old girl, as her family moved to another area, reportedly requested a transfer from the Bartholomew Music School (Μουσικό Σχολείο Βαρθολομιού), where she successfully passed the exams, to a similar educational institution on Alimos. However, I heard from the director a firm: “No.”
The schoolgirl’s mother shared her daughter’s story with media reporters, stressing that her “child suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, and that she is a child with autism, and music is her daily life.”
In her quest to achieve justice, the woman attracted the attention of international basketball player Dimitris Papanikolaou, who some time ago openly spoke about the fact that he also suffers from Asperger’s syndrome.
The famous basketball player visited the family, after which he and the girl’s mother went to a music school to convince the authorities to accept the student into the class. And it had an effect.
The mother of the 13-year-old student announced in her post on social networks that her daughter was finally enrolled in school. “After raising the awareness of the management of the music school about the problem, the issue was resolved. Tomorrow my daughter will go to school again and do her favorite pastime, ”she said.
The intervention of a world-class basketball player appears to have been critical to “persuading” the educational establishment. According to the mother of a 13-year-old teenager, the school had three classes with 26 children in each, but the principals did not allow another child to be included in at least one of them.
Asperger’s Syndrome: Elon Musk and other famous personalities also suffered from it
Asperger’s Syndrome is a form of high functioning autism, which is a lifelong dysfunction that affects the way a person perceives the world, processes information, and relates to other people. Many people with autism have made tremendous contributions to society. In fact, some of the most famous people or geniuses were autistic.
Among them is Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States, who suffered from depression and anxiety attacks. These are symptoms that many researchers have linked to autism. In addition, Lincoln often had nervous breakdowns.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, despite his social difficulties, was a child prodigy in music. He wrote his first piece at the age of 5. As you can see, this genius person with Asperger’s Syndrome was able to achieve the greatest results.
Bill Gates. While unconfirmed, some observers have noted that Bill Gates has signs of Asperger’s: rocking back and forth, disdain for conflicting opinions, focus on little things, and monotonous speech. In fact, these “amateur” observations made many ordinary people with Asperger see him as a “hero.”
And finally, billionaire Elon Musk, who himself publicly announced his diagnosis.
