By saying be yourself I am not saying fail to be prepared. I would tell him you tend to gloss over or forget negative things. For your childhood I would tell him how you got along with, parents, teachers and classmates and why if you remember. Subjects you did poorly with. Any delays in language, di...

I started on the internet in 1997 and there was always pop ups, there was malware and spam and people treated each other badly. On the good side we were aware you were participating in a revolution in communication and research, and there was a lot of naive, innocent optimism of where it would all l...

Another vote for Cold Calling, the odds are so low and most of the the responses will be we do not have a position, call back another time or a hang up. The best responses will be send a a cover letter and resume which is the other option anyway.

My advice is do not use this method at all.

The first step is to do research for the purpose of seeing if you strongly suspected you have it. Asperger syndrome involves a lot more then having problems socially, it is a pervasive condition/disorder. These are 2 places to start http://www.tonyattwood.com.au/index.php/about-aspergers/what-is-asp...

You are not going there to get diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder but to find out what is ailing you be it ASD or something else. Like everyone has said just be yourself and talk about what you experience. The childhood years are important. If you have school records or childhood records bri...

So, in other words.. it's only you who refers to Autism Speaks' marketing as being satanic when it does not in fact contain a single religious christian or satanic reference. I never said they did use exact words and explained why it would be poor marketing for them to do so. If you do not see the ...

..or you have a special interest in hating on Autism Speaks and view anything they say or do through the paradigm that they're "Satanic," in the nature of the way they go about things & that's why you perceive their message as "Satanic." I have a business school education & plenty of market...

On the same note. You are agonizing over when, where and who to "come out" to when you realize you have not actually seen these people in the 4 months since your diagnosis.

You know the exact date, day of the week and time of your diagnosis.

Your posts are the only place I've seen any reference to Autism being a "satanic entity." when I've browsed it, I have not seen anything on Autism Speaks' website about Autism being a satanic anything. Anything that anyone has cross posted here from Autism Speaks has not referenced anything to do w...

I genuinely don't understand why people get so upset at the idea of a cure. You don't have to have it. But you have to admit (at least I would think you would), that life is much more difficult, even simple things, with Autism. If there was a disease that caused babies to be born without hands, sur...

I disagree, they are not a classic hate group but more like a dangerous deluded cult. A classic hate group like the KKK knows they hate blacks and Jews and want to separate from them if not kill them. These people actually think that autism is a satanic like entity destroying their kids by making t...

I find it funny to compare them to being a cult.. as if they're brainwashing people into wanting treatments or cures. Those that want treatments or a cure don't need to be brainwashed and convinced of it any more than cancer patients hoping to be cured of what ails them. Again, if you don't want tr...

why? what makes them evil? Autism Speaks is to autistic people, what the KKK is to black people, and I'm not exaggerating that. They are a classic hate group. They believe that autistic people are destroying their happiness, and they want us off the planet, so they can be happy again. They talk abo...
