I was recently asked this question about growing up with Asperger’s Syndrome: “hello i have a 8 year old son,who has been diagnosed with aspergers, he has severe social anxiety issues, i was hoping you could give me some tips on how to help him manage or overcome these issues,because you seem very well spoken and confident. i was floored when you said you had aspergers, he is very inteligent for his age also he reads at a 4th grade level, just needs help with the social aspect of life thanks.” – i.imgur.com Generally, I dislike giving Youtube advice, but I feel that I have a unique experience in this field that cannot be had by psychologists, and maybe cannot be expressed by many other people who have been diagnosed with AS. That said, autism diagnoses vary widely, and my advice could be completely inapplicable to this person’s situation. Take it all with a grain of salt.

Question by : How does an adult go about getting assessed for Asperger’s?
My boyfriend, his family, and I think he may have an autism spectrum disorder (probably Asperger’s). His doctor recommended he get checked for autism when he was a child, but his father was against it for whatever reason so he never got help, and he has been struggling with handling adult responsibilities lately. I want to try to get him some professional help, but I’ve been having trouble finding information for adults. How does an adult (he is 26) go about getting assessed for Asperger’s? Thank you!
