I know a very high functioning person who's been dxed with schizophrenia and Asperger's. He's not at all pleased with the current system re autism. Using ADOS I see 3 groups.1. 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.

I learn best with clear and precise written instructions focussing on a specific task. As in- Step 1 do this . Step 2 D...

Back when we were kids in the 1960s, kids used to routinely get the Mumps. The vaccine for Mumps wasn't developed until I was 6 years old. I'm lucky I never got the Mumps. One possible (rare) complication was "mumps encephalitis." I'd actually gone back to school late when it was thought ...

In fact, being ahead academically as a young child, yet struggling socially and emotionally is one of the biggest ways that Autistic kids are noticed as Autistic. I guess I was an exception to that rule. My academic performance went south a few months after turning 9. I found out many decades later...

I've never been able to relate my ASD to the concept of developmental delay, perhaps because up to the age of about 9 years old I was ahead of the pack academically. A very similar situation to mine . I was doing better up to the age of 9 than boys who later went on to take scholarships to get into...

Neurodevelopmental disorder/developmental delay/difference/impairment/disability? I'm not sure what to think. Having a SMI along with the ASD adds to that uncertainty. At what point does 'disability' become a more apt word to use than 'difference'? I've never worked.I've had very few friends.My (s) ...
