Question?: Asperger Syndrome Test

Maria asks…

Question to people who know about asperger syndrome?

I was diagnosed with asperger syndrome when I was 4. For much of my early child hood I ticked many of the boxes for asperger‘s. Now I’m 14 and I’m starting to have doubts. I don’t tick much of the boxes at all now and I’m wondering if I’ve been mis-diagnosed. I’m a very sociable person now and I function very well in social situations. Is it worth bein tested again or should I just trust what the doctor said when I was 4?

Alex,
You were only 4 when there was a diagnosis.

It is always good to have a second opinion. It does not hurt. I would go to another doctor that does not know your history and describe to him/her what you mention here.

You might not need a doctor. If it does not interfere with your daily life and you feel you don’t have the previous diagnoses, then I would pitch the diagnoses out the window.

Some of the symptoms of asperger syndrome
– lack of eye contact with other people
– dislike or avoid social interactions
