Question?: Asperger Syndrome Symptoms

Donna asks…

What is the difference between being awkward or having Asperger’s?

According to the Internet, people with Asperger syndrome are very awkward in social situations and have a hard time understanding body language. What would be the difference between just being an awkward person, or having Asperger‘s? (As in mannerisms, behaviour, etc.)

admin answers:

Asperger‘s syndrome is quite complex and affects people in many ways. There are countless symptoms that may be in place, but the thing is that the exact combination of symptoms varies a lot between individuals and nobody has all of the known symptoms. Awkwardness is just one of the many characteristics that most people with Asperger‘s syndrome have, but that doesn‘t mean that everyone who is awkward has Asperger‘s syndrome.

One of the main symptoms of Asperger‘s syndrome is poor social skills. People with Asperger‘s syndrome have difficulty reading into people and situations. They have difficulty understanding things like body language, facial expressions, tone of voice etc. And may use unusual or little body language themselves. They tend to be unaware of various unwritten social rules and are not good at picking up social cues, subtle hints and such. Therefore they are often awkward in social situations and don‘t know exactly what‘s expected of them or how to fit in.

Among other common symtoms of Asperger‘s syndrome are sensory issues (being hypersensitive or hyposensitive to certain textures, light, sounds, smells, touch, taste etc.), obsessive interests, a strong need for routines or sameness, difficulty dealing with changes, poor motor skills and many more.

So Asperger‘s syndrome is a lot more than plain awkwardness.

Question?: Autism Signs In 3 Year Olds

Jenny asks…

Do you think I lost my outgoing nature from autism?

I think I might have autism. Every since my 13th birthday, I lost my outgoing glow around my relatives. I’m now gloomy and shy around them and I get nervous if I made eye contact with them, I only make eye contact to people I know really good.
I’ve actually had social problems since I was 11.

admin answers:

No, absolutely not. Autism is something people are born with or develop at a very young age- it shows up when a kid is between 1-3 or 4 years old usually? If you weren’t showing signs of it before you were 13, you don’t have it.

This sounds more like normal phase/stage of shyness or maybe anxiety disorder of some kind. Are you nervous around other people besides particular relatives or do you worry about social situations or crowds or thngs like that? If you start avoiding people because of it or are just feeling nervous a lot talk to your parents or your doctor.

Question?: Asperger Syndrome Causes

Donald asks…

What developmental disability do you think Boo Radley’s character from To Kill a Mockingbird has?

I am doing an assessment paper on Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird. I am having a difficult time determining and narrowing his disability. I am inclined to believe that he has Pervasive Developmental Disorder NOS with a Co-morbid diagnosis of Schizoid Personality Disorder but on the other hand I am swayed by the diagnosis of either Autism or Aspergers Syndrome. I would love any and all input in regards to this!

admin answers:

I would say Schizoid Personality Disorder, not Autism or Aspergers. Boo Radley purposefully isolates himself from the rest of society, and when he appears, he is silent and detached. Autism and Aspergers usually show up with some sort of obsession. With Autism, depending on the severity, communication and attention issues. I could see how you would go there because they are disorders that cause an individual to be distanced from society. Recall that toward the end of the book, Boo Radley came out and helped Scout and Jem when Ewell attacked them. Someone with autism would not do something that spontaneous unless they were conditioned to behave that way. And people with Aspergers Syndrome usually have little interest in things outside their topic of fixation.

Question?: What Is Autism Yahoo Answers

Richard asks…

How do i get kids to stop picking on my autistic sister?

I feel so bad because nobody wants to share a room with her for her Washington DC trip. I try my best to tell kids to back off and stop being bitches to her because she has feelings too! She doesn’t have really bad autism just slight. I hope all those kids that bully her know that what goes around comes around… PLEASE HELP A.S.A.P

admin answers:

People can really be cruel. :/ But maybe if you could talk to them and explain to them how she feels whenever they do shit like that, they would see that she has feelings to. You could try telling someone you trust that they are picking on her and see if that does any good. I don’t have any relatives who are autistic, but a few people are in my school and I just can’t understand how people can be so cruel and mean to them. They’re just like everybody else. :/ I hope all goes well for you and your sister in the end! 🙂

If you don’t care, could you answer mine?

Question?: Pdd Autism

John asks…

Does anyone have a child that was diagnosed with an autism disorder?

If so does people look at your child strange. My child has PDD and people can be judgemental about it.

admin answers:

I am saddened to tell you that my children and I recieved much emotional abuse, and my children were physically abused by the school system. I even have a family member who said it was my fault that my children had autism due to me not spanking and praying enough. Its so terrible. My children no longer have autism, and now I no longer have to be exposed to the abuse. I am so greatful for all the mom’s who shared how to rid autism by treating for toxins and pathogens. In the mean-time, try to connect with other parents of children with autism so you will have an understanding support system.

Question?: Schizophrenia In Children

Robert asks…

Is it wrong to have children if you have schizophrenia?

Hello, my situation is this I am in my late twenties, and I have 4 beautiful healthy children. I was diagnosed of having schizophrenia in 2007. I since been on medication and have been seeing a psychiatrist every three months. I have been a stay at home mother since then and have get money from disability. I was married recently and I am pregnant with my 5th child, I would love to have 6 in total. Do you think I am crazy for wanting more? LOL

My husband does have a good job that pays well.

What does society think?

admin answers:

I think if you’re able to financially and emotionally care for these children, even if you need a bit of help at times, there is no reason a person with schizophrenia would be less able to effectively raise children.

When it comes to the genetic possibility of passing schizophrenia along to another generation, this is where it becomes a slippery slope. Is it wrong to have children if you have depression? Is it wrong to have children if you’re diabetic? Once you declare it’s wrong for people who have schizophrenia to have children, what next?

I personally think an individual with schizophrenia has the same right as anyone else to have children. The two arguments against this would be you aren’t able to care for your kids fully because of your illness and you could pass it along. However, you seem like you’ve got your illness treated to a point where you are able to care for your children. And like I said with the genetic argument, it’s really an unethical and unrealistic standpoint considering the millions of genetic diseases that we can pass on to our children.

So no, I don’t think it’s wrong to have children if you have schizophrenia. 6 is a lot of kids for anyone and may be a handful even if your illness is well treated. Don’t be afraid to admit you need the help of a relative or friend if you start getting overwhelmed. Utilize your resources, monitor your illness, and I don’t see why there would be anything wrong with the situation.

Question?: What Is Autism In Spanish

Chris asks…

What is the whole immunization/autism conspiracy theory and any links to the new world order?

Is it just me but they seem like they are really pushing for immunizations in latin america( have seen commercials on Spanish TV) and in the US and they call you by phone for reminders.

What is the whole conspiracy and I don’t want to hear that it doesn’t exist just tell me what you know about it.

admin answers:

It’s a bit coincidental that as more and more immunizations occur…more and more people are supposedly diagnosed with autism.
1 in 150 either something that is given to people is causing it or the drug companies and doctors are in cahoots.
Not to mention that diagnosis for the problem hasn’t been defined and anyone with a certain “symptom” could be claimed as being autistic.

Question?: Asperger Syndrome

David asks…

Should sufferers of Aspergers Syndrome be portrayed as geeks on Beauty and the Geek?

Reality T.V. (beauty and the geek) is nothing more than exploiting guys y on the autism spectrum. Asperger syndrome people are super smart, daggy and lack social skills and should not be labelled as geeks as this is putting them down for their disability.

admin answers:

I would guess that Sheldon is intended to have Asperger syndrome, …. Result fail to treat people who they view as “sufferers” with the same level … Then again the Geek stereotype is alot like the Asperger’s stereotype in many ways. … Yet devoted following among those who apprechiate its beauty …
