(Firstly not sure if this topic has been made before.. so MODs please close this if another is found)

Asperger’s Syndrome is Autism without a learning disability, individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome may have average or above average intelligence and may not have the language problems individuals with Autism have, they may also have co-ordination and movement problems. Asperger’s Syndrome is an autistic Spectrum Disorder and individuals with Asperger’s will have problems in the same areas as Autism i.e. social problems, communication problems and problems with imagination and flexibility of thought.

Clinical features

AS is characterized by:

* Narrow interests or preoccupation with a subject to the exclusion of other activities
* Repetitive behaviours or rituals
* Peculiarities in speech and language
* Extensive logical/technical patterns of thought
* Socially and emotionally inappropriate behaviour and interpersonal interaction
* Problems with non-verbal communication
* Clumsy and uncoordinated motor movements

Anybody here been diagonised with Aspergers Syndrome.. or know a friend who has it?
What do you think about it?

Edit: I'm not making this up and it is a real disability.

considering this is disorder that lasts for life. I have Aspergers Syndrome and I have still have problems with the above. Showing the wrong emotions is quite natural for me despite taking social skills lessons.

Body language is poor. Tone of voice isn't constant.. it varies alot.
Trouble in groups. Organisation is poor.. so coursework can be a pain to finish.

One of the big questions is if you've heard of Aspergers Syndrome. Alot of people dismiss it as something minor, now you can't tell I've got Aspergers because I'm only using text to communicate and that only relies on grammar and spelling mostly.

PS. when I meant minor.. as in theres nothing wrong with me.. and I'm just so random strange person..

My friend used to always say to me "I swear you've got Asperger's Syndrome!"
Just because I didn't like people staring at me and because I only eat red sweets.
It's never been diagnosed though.

I remember I read this book about a boy with AS years ago.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.
I forget who it's by. But it was so good. D:

I don't know but some people consider me aggressive, but I show the wrong body emotions so it doesn't match my mood or how I'm really feeling.

Another thing is, there might be.. might not also be other disabilities.
ADHD is something I hear quite often. I'm not sure if I've got ADD (mild ADHD).

i have it...i was diagnosed a few years ago...

and candy, there is no vaccination for mental illnesses like asperger's or down's...either you're born with it, or you're not...it's just like the fact that we have no current cure for hiv or aids...maybe someday, but not today...
