Helen asks…

Is It Possible to Both Have Aspergers and Borderline Autism?

I am wondering, because I seem to have symptoms of both.

admin answers:

Asperger’s is a form of autism (sometimes referred to as high functioning autism). Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is one of five disorders that falls under the umbrella of Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD), a category of neurological disorders characterized by “severe and pervasive impairment in several areas of development.” The other 4 disorders are Asperger’s Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (CDD), Rett’s Disorder, and PDD-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS – aka a-typical autism).
