Question?: Asperger Syndrome Quiz

Steven asks…

I supposedly have a lack of empathy and is it a big deal?

did a empathy quotient and got 5
0 – 32 = low (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20)
33 – 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42)
53 – 63 is above average
64 – 80 is very high
80 is maximum

admin answers:

Even though this quiz is called the empathy quotient, most of the questions don’t have anything to do with empathy. I got a 17, even though I do feel empathy, sometimes very strongly (and I do have Asperger’s, incidentally). Many of the questions actually involved social abilities and social intuition, which is related to empathy but not the same thing. And some of the questions seemed to have very little connection with empathy whatsoever. Like, what does being nervous about riding on a roller coaster have to do with empathy? As is the case with most online tests, you shouldn’t take your results too seriously.

Even if you do, in fact, have below average empathy, it’s not that big a deal so long as you treat people with respect and decency.

Question?: Asperger Syndrome Quiz

Nancy asks…

What is it like having an autistic / asperger’s syndrome student in your class?

admin answers:

My mother works with autistic kids at an elementary school, and she says the three biggest issues are disruptions, accomodations, and acceptance. An autistic student may inadvertantly do or say things that are socially inappropriate, like taking another person’s toy without asking. The teacher may need to devote more attention to this student, which means less attention to other students. If the student receives accomodations, like having an education assistant in the classroom, this would draw attention to his differences. The other students may be jealous that the autistic student gets extra time on quizzes, or leaves the classroom sometimes to go to his social skills group, or whatever the case may be. And of course, some of the other students will not accept their autistic classmate as part of the class unit. They might exclude, tease, or bully him. Having an autistic kid in the class can be a very good thing, though. It exposes the students to different types of people, and teaches them about diversity, patience, and tolerance.

Each autistic person is different, though. The student’s personality and level of functioning affect what he or she is like in the classroom. I have Asperger’s, and I was always very well-behaved in class and polite to my classmates. My Asperger’s had little to no effect on my classmates; most of them probably never guessed I had a disorder. I’ve had classes with other people on the spectrum, though. Some kept to themselves and rarely said anything, some were disruptive and constantly in trouble, and some seemed a bit odd but mostly got along fine.

Question?: Asperger Syndrome Quiz

Donna asks…

Do you not get exited enough about the gifts people give you and hurt their feelings?

I just dont show a lot of emotion, I guess or get very exited about ANYTHING. I like the things people get me, and I use them. I appreciate that they took some time to think of me, But They always think I dont like stuff because I dont do backflips and stuff when they give me something. I am just not very animated, I guess. Does this happen to you, or do you go all berzerk over gifts?

admin answers:

I have always had that problem. I know it has put a strain on some of my relationships because even when I feel something is a fantastic gift I just don’t look like I’m excited. I rarely get emotional about anything.

I always had the feeling that something was wrong with me, or at least extremely different from how most people process the world around them. It has always been rare for me to make emotional connections with other people. Only in the last few years have I learned about a condition called Asperger’s Syndrome which I think explains an awful lot about how I deal with the world and especialy other people. The link below has an interesting quiz. After the quiz it also provided links to several other informative pages.

Question?: Autistic Symptoms

Linda asks…

Is autistic spectrum online tests a valid tool for diagnosis?

Seems to be you can do a quiz to diagnose everything these days. A couple of people have suggested I do it as I have alot of the symptoms, but these symptoms are symptoms for various things such as social phobia, panic attack disorder and OCD. How does a doctor usually go about diagnosing something like this?

admin answers:

Online tests of any kind of not valid diagnostic tools. Autism spectrum disorders are complex and tricky to diagnose. A good test can give you an indication, but not a diagnosis. My psychologist diagnosed me with Asperger’s syndrome based on my self-report, an interview with my mom, my performance on a series of cognitive tests, and her observations of my behavior. The whole process took several hours, mostly because of the tests. If you want to be evaluated, you’ll need to see an autism spectrum disorders specialist. Your GP should be able to suggest someone.

Question?: Treatment For Autism In Toddlers

Charles asks…

My toddler walks on his tip toes?

My son is 21months he always walks on his tip toes! His happy to run nmd walk with no pain!
Is it a medical condition or a habit?

admin answers:

That is a strong sign of autism.

Is he speaking well and growing a strong vocabulary? Making good eye contact?

Walking on tip-toes is a sensory disorder… Which often is part of autism. He should be seen by a pediatrician.

It is possible it is just a quirk he does (it is for some kids), but often it is a sign of a larger problem. In that case, you want to start intervention as soon as possible. Outcomes are much better when treatment is started before age 2.

Look at this quiz to see if your child is reaching his other milestones. Http://pages.uoregon.edu/asqstudy/

Question?: Asperger Syndrome Quiz

Lizzie asks…

Does anyone know of any online quizzes that help to determine aspberger syndrome in adults?

I know that a quiz doesn’t take the place of a bonafide medical diagnosis, but I am curious if any such quizzes are around as indicators. The only ones I have come across thus far are centered around children and teens.

admin answers:

Online Materials
· Case Histories
· Adults with Asperger’s Syndrome Brochure
· Asperger’s Syndrome Fact Sheet

Most of the quizzes are centered around the young,however they can be equally applied to the mature
also.
An example:

Take this simple little quiz.
1. Do they spin objects around and around?
2. Is their speech repetitive, like an echo?
3. Are they attracted to shows like Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy?
4. Do they like to watch the same movie over and over again?
5. Are they fascinated with numbers and letters?
6. Do they seem unafraid of things that they should be afraid of?
7. Is it hard for them to make eye contact or they simply don’t?
8. Do they shun away from being touched or arch their back when held?
9. Do they like to line objects up in rows?
10. Do they lack the ability to play “with” other children interactively?
11. Do they walk up or down stairs always leading with the same foot?

If you answer yes to three or more of these questions, have them checked out by a professional who is recommended by your local Autism Society. To find more information and resources on Autism and Asperger’s, please visit
