I was really bad at geometry at school. I score low on the spatial tests I've tried online.

We played quite a lot of board games. I used to get irritable with my brother because he'd mess around when playing.

Like most middle class children I was given quite a lot of toys. It was difficult to know what to do with them .With the Lego I put brick on brick on top of brick or side by side. I didn't know how to make things

Going to boarding school at 8 first brought some issues to the fore , but it wasn't till going to public school at 13 that the social issues became really pronounced . I was definitely regarded as the 'weird boy' by my peers. I once had monkey chants directed at me in a geography class by a lot of t...

You offer some good possibilities as to why. Ah, but they are only guesses . It's really annoying to me when a study brings to light a situation and provides no clues as to its cause or resolution. Well they're better guesses than a lot of people would make. I agree it's frustrating that they offer...

I would pose the question is it the degree of autistic symptoms or difficulty with living skills etc that matters most when assigning a level. I'm definitely not intellectually disabled and am not brain damaged as far as I know. It's very likely,though I'm not diagnosed, that I have what Americans c...

Children who are on the severe end of the autism spectrum are increasingly being left out of studies on treating the developmental disorder, new research suggests. A review of 367 studies on children with autism conducted between 1991 and 2013 finds that the proportion of research that included thos...

I think gauging what level you might be , if you think you might be on the spectrum but are not yet diagnosed, is hard. I'd guess most people here would be level 1 or 2. What counts as substantial help re level 2 vs some help re level 1? I'm quite verbal but have poor practical skills. Without help ...

I consciously rock when alone. I am not aware of rocking and tapping my feet when my stepdaughter is with me. However at my third assessment she said I rock and tap my feet. I'm not aware of anything else I do that could be called stimming.
