I have researched this subject to death and here is my conclusion: Genetics 100%. Everyone has genetic mutations they pass on. These genes can either be expressed or not. If they are expressed the person will have Autism or Aspergers depending on how much they are expressed...if they are not the per...

When you have a kid, it's like rolling a giant dice, and you never know what set of strengths and challenges your kid will inherit.

oh it's never too late. Find the other quiet girl in school, or the quieter girls and make friends with them. They're the girls that prefer one or one to two friends to hang out with instead of 15. The quieter ones in class, chat to them. They dont have to be "outcasts" There is also nothi...

I'm NT as far as I know but I will share my experience because I think its similar to some people who may have ASD. Growing up I was a huge introvert.

Do what others said re eyes and forehead...but also practise outside of work. Try it with the coffee person when you buy coffee or shop person when you buy anything really. The other thing that you can do is be honest with the people around you. Send them an email and explain your condition. Explain...

Can you try to ask someone a question every day and you can file away the answer. So for an example when you buy a coffee, you can ask the coffee person "has it been busy today?"..hear their answer and walk away. The next day you can ask someone else a question when you buy something like ...
