We were regarded as 'mediocre'
I was the odd boy/teenager,the socially rejected boy/teenager, the 'not particularly intelligent' boy,the 'mediocre' pupil. There was nothing like #2e back then. The #ASD dx came much later.I think there must be several more from my generation who were the same. Some got over the bullying &social rejection,some of us haven't.Neither our strengths or weaknesses were recognised by the education system. We were seen as merely mediocre.
