Question?: Asperger Syndrome

Laura asks…

Can someone please explain to me what Asperger syndrome is?

I made a new friend and she told me that she had Asperger syndrome I read a little about it online but I still don’t fully understand it 🙁 can someone help me? Please no rude answers!

admin answers:

I have Asperger’s basically I find it hard to make friends (socialize) , I stick to a very fixed routine which I cannot break. People with Asperger’s often have 1 to 3 obsessions (like Astrology, Trains etc) with me it is the Weather & Animals. Not everyone with Asperger’s is the same. They are tend to clumsy and find it very hard/impossible to make eye-contact with someone. I am of average-intelligence like most Asperger’s suffers. They can be ultra-sensitive to sounds, smell or light. They often take things rather literally like “I feel like killing you” the person with Asperger’s may take this literally and get frightened, although I have learnt that is is just a figure of speech. We find is difficult to read other people’s facial expressions and body language. I could name more traits but I’m too tired. One more thing they often have excellent memories especially with date of births, childhood memories etc. I hope you and your friend have an excellent time together forever.
Take care. Good-bye.

Question?: Autistic Symptoms

Sharon asks…

How can you tell when a child is autistic?

I have known people for years without knowing they’re autistic. I don’t even realize it until they tell me.

How can you tell when a child is autistic? It’s hard for me to tell for some reason

admin answers:

Technically, a physician must perform the tests to determine a proper diagnosis. However, the main areas include a lack of language/communication development, lack of social development or interaction, and intense pre-occupation with one or two particular things (such as trains, sheep, or comic books). Most of these symptoms while be noticable by the age of 3.
