Is it a better flat than before with its modern comforts? I'm not giving the link but this what it says- is the conversion of an existing two storey building into 16no. one-bedroom flats for over 55’s living. The building has been extensively adapted and reconfigured to suit the new use, including ...

Thank you for that long but interesting reply. My WM is within the average range. A simple averaging of the psychometrician created and/or normed tests I've done gives a 147 result, with a range of about 142-152. This is a better method, and would possibly give a higher result, but I lack the data n...

To a ground floor flat that's more suited to my physical needs. All the flats in the area are for those 55+. My (s) daughter has done a 1st rate job getting it for me, and is doing an equally good job getting things moved to the new flat. My granddaughters have been a big help too. This has been a g...

Yes, simply because of executive dysfunction as you mention, which is highly prevalent in those conditions. So, those that have relatively spared intelligence, can still show cognitive impairments. This isn't to say the people with spared intelligence didn't lose something from said condition/s whe...

Is this fairly typical re being an autistic and/or a SMI person? Good performance on psychometrician created and/or normed tests of intelligence, but don't do well when it comes to multistep tasks. Organising and planning being primary EF deficits.

I've been regarded as somewhat odd,weird etc from as far back as I can remember.At prep school they said I was the 'missing link'. At public school a classroom of boys directed monkey chans at me.I've had people laugh at me when I'm walking outside. Due no doubt to my odd gait.

Both social communication and social interaction are at classic autism level. 2 One is at classic autism and the other non ...

With the higher functioning types things get much more bizarre from the perspective of me. Some autisitcs can be incredibly articulate but need their housing, transport and financial needs met by carers and state benefits. Others can be like planks of wood on the vocabulary side but can be very cap...

I walked and talked before I was 1. Self taught myself to read before the Kennedy/Nixon election.Was into looking things up in encyclopaedias from a very young age. In other words I was quite normal. I fell more and more behind, in relation to my age and cognitive abilities, as the need for independ...

And for me, it became much more apparent with changing life situations. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome in fourth grade, but I fell further and further behind at every sort of transition (elementary school to middle school, high school to college, college to trying to find a job, etc.).. T...

I am much older than you, and have ASD +schizophrenia/schizo-affecrive. I've lived independently sine 1983. I was with my wife from 1983-2005. She died. I consider myself moderate functioning. I get quite a lot of support to help me maintain my independence.

Feeling frustrated and stressed. I'm struggling to use a program called DNA Painter and getting nowhere fast. I've explained the problem I'm having on a FB genealogy group I go on.
