It's a LOT like Asperger's Syndrome
1.) Not pick up on social cues and may lack inborn social skills, such as being able to read others' body language, start or maintain a conversation,
and take turns talking.
2.) Dislike any changes in routines.
3.) Appear to lack empathy. (Not True We dole our Empathy out to those that we think Mostly deserve it! it's a Emotional control mechanism because if
we didn't we'd be emotional wrecks)
4.) Be unable to recognize subtle differences in speech tone, pitch, and accent that alter the meaning of others? speech. So your child may not
understand a joke or may take a sarcastic comment literally. And his or her speech may be flat and hard to understand because it lacks tone, pitch,
5.) Have a formal style of speaking that is advanced for his or her age. For example, the child may use the word "beckon" instead of "call" or the
word "return" instead of "come back."
6.) Avoid eye contact or stare at others.
7.) Have unusual facial expressions or postures.
8.) Be preoccupied with only one or few interests, which he or she may be very knowledgeable about. Many children with Asperger's syndrome are overly
interested in parts of a whole or in unusual activities, such as designing houses, drawing highly detailed scenes, studying astronomy or Computer game
programming. They may show an unusual interest in certain topics such as butterflies, names of stars, or dinosaurs.
9.) Talk a lot, usually about a favorite subject. One-sided conversations are common. Internal thoughts are often verbalized.
10.) Have delayed motor development. Your child may be late in learning to use a fork or spoon, ride a bike, or catch a ball. He or she may have an
awkward walk. Handwriting is often poor.
11.) Have heightened sensitivity and become overstimulated by loud noises, lights, or strong tastes or textures.
For more information about these symptoms, see sensory processing disorder.
Please Note Many children with Asperger's syndrome also have coexisting conditions and may have symptoms of these conditions also. They include:
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Anxiety disorder. (I wonder why?, When people see us they instantly cause us grievous bodily harm! for no Understandable reason!)
Depression, especially in adolescents. (PROFOUND DEPRESSION!)
Nonverbal learning disorder. (Err.. What?)
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). (Must wash hands, Must wash hands, Do it now, Do it now, DO IT NOW, Exterminate all germs, EXTERMINATE! *say it
in a dalek voice* )
Social anxiety disorder. (I don't want to go out there and make friends they tend to Make fun of us then physically attack us for some Unknown
As a person with this condition I can tell you the ASD does not exist, The spectrum is Not of the Disability itself but is the PERSONALITY
of the individual affected by said condition which is Asperger's Syndrome. Stupid scientists Autism Spectrum Disorder Ermm.. Stupid
"Professionals" simply DO NOT
understand they think they do but they DO NOT!.
