How many of you with Duane's Syndrome have Autism (specifically Asperger's) as a co-morbid? Raise your virtual hands, please.
Have you had neurological testing? A brain scan? What results have you been presented?

I don't have it (had to look it up) but it seems it's quite commonly mixed with ASD:

Quote:
Duane syndrome can be associated with extraocular problems (so-called "Duane's Plus"), including cervical spine abnormalities (Klippel-Feil syndrome), Goldenhar syndrome, autism, heterochromia, and thalidomide-induced embryopathy.

I had Amblyopia which is connected and shows up a lot in people with ASD'S. Amblyopia is neurological in origin.

I went to high school with a boy who had Duane's Syndrome. He was always getting laser surgery done on one of his eyes.
