Long Answer

1. Seth (Jason’s cousin) speaks rudely to Jason and Jeremy, making it clear he does not want them at his house. Seth calls Jason “defective,” which causes Jason to kick Seth. This incident shows that, even among family, people tend to perceive those with ASD as “broken.” (Chapter 11)

2. There are important parallels between Jason and Lester, and they have a kind of kinship. Lester, like Jason, is known for being different; Lester is unlike other dogs. Also like Jason, Lester is quiet and uses body movements to regulate his emotions. (Chapter 17-18)
