    John Robison was never a model child, and he wasn"t a model dad either. Diagnosed with Asperger"s syndrome at forty, he approached fatherhood as series of logic puzzles and practical jokes. Still, John got the basics right, and gave his son Cubby a life of adventure. What he couldn"t figure out was what to do when school authorities said that Cubby was dumb and stubborn - the very same thing he had been told as a child.
