    Time For More Involvement?

    I can sense lately an increasing risk of what we knew as Asperger Syndrome falling back to the kind of unawareness of the seventies and eighties. That is lack of systematic, organised and well-researched support, diagnosis and awareness. This may leave younger people in limbo and unaware their struggles to survive in school (or at work) have a definite neurological and psychological basis. Accurate information needs to be made available. There needs to be sufficient qualified specialists and also full awareness by GP's. I don't see this happening in the future without more involvement from autistic people. That is formation of helplines, support awareness groups and general pro-activeness. There are still plenty of people around who understand the real struggles that relate to autism and HFA but many of these were helped by the sudden awareness around 2000. In fact that was how I found out Asperger Syndrome existed. It did take me some years to fully understand the condition but, at the time, the basic outline of the main symptoms listed solved a lifelong puzzle. These are: Instinctive communication problems (non-verbal), Low emotional empathy, withdrawel, being bullied or excluded, meltdowns, repetitive behaviour, obsessions with interests, noise sensitivity and skin sensitivity plus information processing and attention issues (communicative). Although the fuller understanding and study of AS and HFA is far more complex, we can at least make people aware of the basic outline. We should also be encouraging more AS people to specialise in psychology at degree level perhaps.

    Self Diagnosis

    How many people on here are self-diagnosed?What do you think of people who self-diagnose?How do you deal with people who disapprove of your self-diagnosis?
  3. whats the differance between Aspergers and high functioning autism? apparently not that much. atleast acording to the chaps over the see in USA who have recently rulled that from now on no more people will be diagnosed with Aspergers, and instaid simply have High functioning Autism, and are just on the spectrum. - what do you think about this? - glad that the two are seen side by side? or would you rather they be seen as differant? - have others heard about it or have i been misinformed? - do you think there is a clear differance between the two? - or is the only differance people come up with the learning difficulty? (sorry about all the questions i'm just curious)
