Question by : Is Autism a Disqualifier for the Marine Corps and other branches?
I was diagnosed with autism, but I NEVER had any medication for it. Would I still be able to join? People who have been on medication could not go in, but I would like to know if I can. I get good grades, I run or jog even when I am tired and so far, I am doing okay when it comes to self-control. My autism isn’t really serious, but it’s in me.
I also work with other people if they need help or give a helping hand.

Answer by Niko Bellic
I don’t know what they mean by automatic disqualifier nowadays, but it is one according to the website. Were you self diagnosed or diagnosed by an actual psychologist? I have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and I was automatically disqualified so I don’t know if there’s a way around this or not. But whatever you do, do not lie to get in since you could end up in jail since they will find out. The reason why it’s an automatic disqualifier has to do with the fact that nobody really knows much about Autism, and a lot of them can’t work in a team environment. Trying to apply one time wouldn’t hurt since you never know what could happen at any place even if it’s illegal for you to do something (it is a disqualifier, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t apply which means that it’s worth a shot even if you won’t be getting in), and if they don’t accept you then there’s nothing that you can do about it. I personally feel that it should depend on the person and not on their disability, but that’s just what I think. Hope this helps you!

Question by butt3r_flydas: Has anyone tried chiropractor for adhd and how did it work?
My son has adhd and I don’t want to put him on ritalin.
Both of you need to google ritalin deaths. Also read what some adults that were on that junk when they were kids have to say about it. I don’t want to hear about this over the counter meth. And if you knew what you were talking about you would know the chiropractor focuses on the brain stem. You two are prob medical doctors uhg.

Best answer:

Answer by Psychobenzaprine
1) Yes, someone has probably tried it.

2) No, it didn’t work.

3) …because ADHD isn’t caused by a crooked spine!

README BEFORE WATCHING! Sono un Asperger e un anno fa ho fatto “outing”, decidendo di rendere consapevole chi mi sta accanto di come sono fatto. Mi sono però accorto che è veramente difficile spiegare la Sindrome di Asperger: noi Aspie tendiamo a fare un elenco ordinato ed infinito di sintomi, come un’enciclopedia… mentre gli NT faticano a comprenderci, un po’ perché per come sono fatti hanno bisogno di esempi pratici, un po’ perché si rifiutano di capire la Sindrome, uscendosene con frasi frustranti e umilianti come: “Ma no, non sei malato, sei solo un po’ eccentrico”. Dopo aver visto il film Adam, ho pensato quindi di estrarne alcune clip che a mio parere evidenziavano molto bene i principali sintomi della Sindrome e li rendono un po’ più comprensibili. A noi Aspie questo video sembrerà superficiale, incompleto, banale… ma secondo me può essere molto utile per far capire agli NT come siamo fatti. Proverò per un po’ a farlo vedere alle persone che mi circondano, sostituendo il “pippone” clinico che gli sottopongo adesso…. vediamo come va 🙂 Accetto volentieri commenti, anche negativi. I diritti del film “Adam” appartengono alla Fox Searchlight. Non è mia intenzione sfruttare una loro proprietà intellettuale, che ho utilizzato semplicemente a scopo “didattico” non riportando né trama né spoiler. Se vi interessa il film, potete acquistarlo qui: www.amazon.it

Question by : What makes it difficult for someone with Asperger’s to understand empathy?
I really want to believe those with Asperger’s are being honest when they state it is foreign for them to grasp having an understanding and appreciation of other’s feelings. What makes it hard for an Aspie in this regard?

Best answer:

Answer by undir
People with Asperger’s syndrome think differently and often experience different feelings than others. We don’t always have the same feelings as others about something particular and we don’t react to things the same as other people, because we are simply differently wired.

Something that may seem unimportant to us may feel very important to someone else, so when other people have strong feelings about something like that we find it hard to empathize. In the same way, we feel very strongly about some other things that other people don’t think are important, so they don’t understand why we have such strong feelings about it and they can’t empathize with us.

It’s just very hard for us to understand other people’s feelings, because we don’t experience those feelings in the same way or under the same circumstances.

It is also very hard for us to read into non-verbal communication, like body language, facial expression and non-literal speech, so it can be very hard for us to even tell what another person feels like. We can’t see the physical signs of their feelings, which also makes it hard for us to know how we are supposed to react. We just don’t know how other people feel or how they would prefer us to react.

Meditation in San Francisco School Improves Learning

For information on how to learn the Transcendental Meditation technique please visit www.tm.org?leadsource=CRM1262 James Dierke My name is James Dierke and I am the principal of Visitacion Valley Middle School. When I arrived at this school thirteen years ago it had the highest absentee rate, the highest suspension rate, the highest teacher turnover rate, the lowest academic achievement rate. We had the second highest crime rate in San Francisco and about 85% of the kids were from homes of poverty. The kids didn’t play outside they didn’t go anywhere on the weekends. They were kind of prisoners of their own environment. Five years ago Principal Dierke tried something new to break the predictive power of the demographics of his school. James Dierke: I had heard about Transcendental Meditation early in my career as a special educator. I had seen it in operation on a one to one basis. Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a simple and effective technique proven to reduce stress and improve health and well-being. James Dierke: When I first went downtown to tell people that

High Functioning Autism Aspergers Symptoms

Autism/Aspergers syndrome is a developmental disorder. Autistic children grow up to be Autistic adults. Some people think “how can you be autistic, you are nothing like Rain man” well most of us on the Autistic spectrum are not exactly like him Although I do now Autistic people that share some of his ability to remember important dates and huge amounts of facts and data that can be recited instantaneously. Autistic symptoms are based around the central Autistic diagnosis criteria called the “Triad of Impairments” This encompasses a) Social and emotional difficulties b) Language and communication difficulties c) Flexibility of thought (imagination) Recognising the Triad of Impairments in my experience is just the starting point, and as many people affected by Autism will tell you, Autistic spectrum disorder can be a hugely complicated condition to understand. And even though there are common symptoms that Autistic people may share, Not everyone with Autism display all the symptoms all the time. Then when you add in other factors such as personality trait’s enviromental factors and co-existing conditions then trying to find a “one approach fits all” mentality to working with Autistic people is not going to work. I sometimes think that everyone on the Autistic spectrum is practically a sub category in themselves. Steve

Question by Hunter: What’s the difference between Asperger’s and high functioning autism?
I’ve seen a lot of people on the mild end of the spectrum who tell me they have autism or Asperger’s but their speech is normal, and they don’t act any differently than typical people, including myself, because I am a typical teenager. Are they lying to me or no? And people with high functioning autism and Asperger’s seem pretty much the same as to what I’ve noticed. They may have difficulty navigating social situations, but other than that they’re fine. So what do you guys think? Is there any difference?

Best answer:

Answer by Erin
Speech and behavior apply more to the lower functioning end of the spectrum, for those of us with really high functioning Autism/Aspergers the only difference from normal people is social interactions, they aren’t lying to you. As for your other question, Aspergers is high functioning Autism, Autism is a spectrum disorder, and aspergers is at the high end, classic Autism is at the low end. I use Autism and Aspergers interchangably to describe my disorder, what does one word matter?
