I had piano lessons as an extra curricular activity at prep school. I was so bad that in the 5 years I did it I was never good enough to pass grade 1. When it came to Maths I was terrible at geometry. I do reasonably well on high range numerical IQ tests,but I'm very far from being a mathematical ge...

I'd classify myself as 'middle functioning'. I live independently with a fair amount of help mainly from my (s)daughter and to a lesser extent my granddaughters. I was given a booklet at the post dx appointment , and later was sent a list of what was discussed at that appointment. My needs have ten...

The arrogant,bullying, pig ignorant boys who made my time at British public school an utter misery- they shaped my political views , not ASD. Why were you in public school? Was this to give you a shot at "upward mobility"? Ir was the done thing then for the children of diplomats.My father...

I know the three of you are right, but I feel like a bit of a failure. Normally I don't try that hard at things, and tend to give up quite easily. However I've bucked the trend getting over the falls, and I've really made a strong effort to get better walking wise.

Now (s) daughter and granddaughters will be able to take me out. Have had to use walking frame more as was getting more and more pain,on the left side, where hip replacement was done, when walking independently. (S) daughter has said it's because I've been overdoing the independent walking, and need...

I moved into the new ground floor flat on Saturday morning. Was supposed to have internet yesterday, but BT didn't do what was needed. Finally managed to use a hotspot. The place is smaller, but an ample size for me- it has kitchen diner, bedroom, bathroom with walk in shower. I'm able to stand just...

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.
