Question?: Autism Signs And Symptoms

Mandy asks…

How can you tell if a young man has schizophrenia?

Just wondering – The same young man has depression and AD-HD. He takes special classes.

As he is talking, he’ll look in another direction, as if he is looking at something past you. He stays focus on it and doesn’t make eye contact.
Also, on one occasion I walked in on him talking to him self, facing a wall.

this page has a list of the positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia

Symptoms of schizophrenia usually emerge during adolescence or early adulthood and may appear suddenly or develop gradually. When symptoms develop gradually, they may be misdiagnosed with other conditions with similar symptoms, such as bipolar disorder or substance abuse (which commonly occurs with schizophrenia).

Question?: Treatment For Autism Children

Thomas asks…

What are the chances of us having an autistic child?

My husband’s niece has Asperger Syndrome. Are the chances higher than average for us to have a baby with AS or autism?

admin answers:

There are a few different spectrums of Autism and ASperger syndrome is one of them,it is less severe and usually occurs in females..Autism is becoming more frequent yet doctors and scientists truly dont know what the cause is but they do believe it may be genetic,and since it usually isnt diagnosed until the ages between 2 and 4,it would be highly unlikely to detect beforehand if you and your husbands child will develop it..still yet,you and your husband should see a genetic counselor and have tests run before getting pregnant to rule out any other possible genetic abnormalities…the good news though,is that even with Autism reaching its all time high,the treatments are getting better and with more success…hope this helped! Good luck…

I’m not entirely sure what you’re trying to ask. Do you want to learn more about Asperger’s? Are you looking for a diagnosis? I agree with Pilot that http://www.rdos.net/eng/Aspie-quiz.php is the best Asperger’s test. It’s not the same as an official diagnosis, but it is very detailed and can give you an indication of whether or not you have Asperger’s. At the very least, you’ll develop a better understanding of Asperger’s. Here are a few other sites:

http://www.webmd.com/brain/autism/tc/aspergers-syndrome-topic-overview http://www.wrongplanet.net

Plus, you can always try Googling it and see what you find. If you want to be evaluated for Asperger’s, you’ll need to see a psychologist, psychiatrist, or neurologist who specializes in autism spectrum disorders. Your regular doctor should be able to refer you to someone.
