You have autism or Asperger? Big difference (to me and to the US society for Autism and Asperger). I have Asperger, my son as well, my father very certainly too and I suspect quite a few uncles and one aunt on this side of my family also have Asperger. Asperger is very much a hereditary condition, I'd say about 1/3 of my uncles/aunts (grand total of 11 s...

As an Asperger person and a big animal lover (like most Aspies), I am horrified that a kid would try to kill a pet. I think there may be much more than his autism to explain this behavior, I would bring him to a psychologist to discuss this episode. In the meantime, make sure he stays away from pets at all times!

Well, I have no idea as 99.9% of the general population has no clue what Asperger really is about. Yes a former colleague called me weird years ago and I am sure a bunch of other people also thought I was weird, they were simply to polite to tell me so.

Your grandson could definitively be on the spectrum, several signs are pointing to it. My son is Asperger - and so am I. When my son was diagnosed, very young, the psy had told us: we may need to put him on an antidepressant around 6-7 if he has too much anxiety but absolutely no ADHD medication for an Asperger child. Which is why I warned you to be careful w...

Rather than putting him on a ADHD medication, I would suggest discussing an antidepressant with his doctor. You say he never has joy at all, that sounds like depression to me.

I agree it's scary and he needs counseling ASAP, wants it or not. He probably needs a tough counselor, someone who will make him listen and open up. Good luck!

I am an Aspie and have had problems with labels forever. Sensory issues and Asperger or PDD-NOS go hand in hand. I cannot stand long conversations neither. The thing is: do you have anxiety big time? Do you dread social situations? These are 2 big caracteristics of an Aspie. Anyway, here is a test you can do: Th...
