I was diagnosed with AS when I was 13.

I had no idea what my specialist was talking about because I was coping with bullying (including from two teachers who believed bullying was a good thing), raging hormones, and the passing of my dad who passed the day after I turned 12.

I was diagnosed in the Mid-1990s in my mid 30s. Back at this time, recognizing High Fuctioning Autism was considered "ahead of the curve."

April 2018: Level 2 Classic Autism (not Aspergers or HFA)

It was the first time I requested an assessment, so I can't fault anyone.

Prior to that I was DX: Mutism, CPTSD, GAD, MDD, etc.

After it I was also DX with Combined-Type ADHD.

I was diagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorder, Level 1 (Mild) at age 64 in 2019. However, the written Psychological Evaluation that documented my diagnosis included the observation that I also displayed many of the qualities of what was previously known as Asperger's Syndrome.

What is the youngest possible age you can realistically get diagnosed at?

Hi @robbokris : a diagnosis can be had around 2 years of age.

It is estimated that the percentage of Asperger's or other HFA (which are not the same nosography, even in the DSM 5th are a subcategory)

They are between 0.7% and 1% in the world
§
It is trying to do before that.

Now it is entrusted to parameters that require the functioning and reciprocity of gaze.

§
We will see later why this limit decreases at a few months of age

§

It is important to underline that in girls the diagnoses are much rarer, it is described 4 times lower than in boys

§
In Italy we have 300,000 diagnoses and the population is 60 million people.
