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?

Answer by Katharine
It helps them pay attention better. That’s a help when you’re studying.

That makes it a popular drug on the black market. Consequently it’s tightly controlled, which means that ADHD people who really need it have to jump through hoops to get it.

Shame on those kids.

Question by Theodore Macmahon: What is your advice on vaccinations for children with siblings diagnosed with autism?
This question is for people who have family members, or more specifically children, who have autism. My first child was diagnosed at 2 and I recently had another child (10 days old). I want to get more insight from parents about how they feel about vaccines in regards to autism and whether or not we should put the vaccines shots on hold for younger siblings until they get older.

Best answer:

Answer by Weise Ente
Considering there isn’t a link between vaccination and autism, it’s a nonissue.

Edit: Antivaxxers are dishonest. Hannah Polling has a rare mitochondrial disorder, not typical autism.
