Question by : How long do most Asperger’s kids have tantrums?
I was just wondering because I’m reading Jodi Picoult’s House Rules (which, I’m aware, unrealistically depicts Asperger’s) and the main character has tantrums at eighteen. I’ve looked online and it says kids with Asperger’s have temper tantrums longer than most kids but… Eighteen? Isn’t that more severe autism?

Thanks in advance.

An Overview of Aspergers Syndrome

Fifty years ago, most people had never heard of autism spectrum disorder but today the diagnosis is much more common. With the increased diagnosis of autism, the general public has become more aware of its existence. With that has come more recognition of Aspergers syndrome.

Autism is considered to be a spectrum disorder because symptoms can range from debilitating to very high functioning. It is within the higher range of that spectrum that the diagnosis of Aspergers syndrome can be found. High function, however, is not to be confused with “normal” function. There are visible behaviors specific to the Aspergers disorder that can be quite crippling even if they are subtle to untrained observers.

Some patients with this diagnosis can look very normal to an uneducated eye but their behaviors can wreak havoc on their family unit.

The disorder manifests itself with symptoms affecting social interaction, which can look like the outbursts of a spoiled child. When the child has Aspergers in reality such tantrums represent the frustrations of a child unable to understand what is wrong or why he/she is struggling with exchanges between family or friends.

The symptoms of the disorder can be varied but usually include some type of social malfunctioning. Ranging from the inability to read the body language of others to seemingly self-absorbed idiosyncrasies, social interactions are deeply affected when behaviors are off putting and others don’t understand.  Yet, as a result of such interactions, the person with the disorder may be just as confused by the responses he/she receives, as those observing or involved.

Individuals afflicted, who have not had the benefit of intervention, can be emotionally crippled and unable to build or sustain social relationships. Such damage can leave a person unable to fit into the roles society expects. Unable to adapt in a socially acceptable manner can leave one depressed or defiant, with some untreated individuals resorting to drugs and/or crime.

Early intervention is imperative if such damage is to be avoided. Patients can be taught the necessary skills to function within the parameters of “normal.”  The earlier a child gets help the more likely he/she can be successful at fitting in and prospering.

In today’s society family, friends, and the afflicted individual can get help to deal with Aspergers Syndrome. It is no longer a sentence for maladjustment and ridicule. The key is to get educated about the disorder and to learn strategies that will bring peace to everyone involved.

I loved fashion and makeup. I always wanted to look glamorous and sexy. Brigitte Bardot was my idol. I would look at magazines and emulate models and movie stars’ appearances especially Brigitte Bardot. Je t’aime was banned by the BBC. My first love, my French boyfriend who I met in a London night club. I went to live with him in Paris and different places in France. Then going to Canada A few months later I met my future husband. My husband is so kind a good person with great character and a good heart. He calls me the princess and the pea because I am so sensitive to my environment.

Asperger’s Syndrome – Understanding And Treatment

If you know of a child who is having a greater degree of language impairment than other children or has diminished communication skills and also exhibits a restrictive pattern of thought and behavior, he may have Asperger’s syndrome. This condition is more or less similar to that of classic autism. The main difference between autism and Asperger’s syndrome is that the child suffering from Asperger’s syndrome retains his early language skills.

The peculiar symptom of Asperger’s syndrome is a child’s obsessive interest in a single object or topic to the exclusion of any other. The child suffering from Asperger’s syndrome wants to know all about this one topic.

Sometimes their speech patterns and vocabulary may resemble that of a little professor. Other Asperger’s symptoms include the inability to interact successfully with peers, clumsy and uncoordinated motor movements, repetitive routines or rituals, socially and emotionally inappropriate behavior, and last, but not least, problems with non-verbal communication.

Asperger’s syndrome sufferers find difficulty mingling with the general public.

Even if they converse with others, they exhibit inappropriate and eccentric behavior. The Asperger’s syndrome patient may always want to talk about his singular interest.

Developmental delays in motor skills such as catching a ball, climbing outdoor play equipment or pedaling a bike may also appear in the child with Asperger’s syndrome. Children with Asperger’s syndrome often show a stilted or bouncy walk, which appears awkward.

The therapy for the Asperger’s syndrome mainly concentrates on three-core symptoms: physical clumsiness, obsessive or repetitive routines, and poor communication skills. It is unfortunate that there is no single treatment for the children suffering from the entire three-core symptoms. But professionals do agree that the syndrome can be cured when the intervention is carried out at the earliest possible time.

The treatment package of Asperger’s syndrome for children involves medication for co-existing conditions, cognitive behavioral therapy, and social skills training. The Asperger’s syndrome treatment mainly helps to build on the child’s interests, teaches the task as a series of simple steps and offers a predictable schedule.

Although children suffering from Asperger’s syndrome can mange themselves with their disabilities, the personal relationships and social situations are challenging for them. In order to maintain an independent life, the Asperger’s syndrome sufferers require moral support and encouragement to work successfully in mainstream jobs.

Studies are on the way to discover the best treatment for Asperger’s syndrome, which includes the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify the abnormalities in the brain which causes malfunction of the same, which in turn result in Asperger’s syndrome. Clinical trials are being conducted to identify the effectiveness of an anti-depressant in Asperger’s syndrome individuals. Even the analysis of the DNA of the Asperger’s syndrome sufferers and their families may cause a break through in the treatment of the Asperger’s syndrome.
