No its caused by the MMR vaccine. That's just silly. No one has ever been able to prove this. There are just as many people without shots that have AS that do have them. Perfect example, I know a man who has never had any vaccinations and he is the AS posterboy. I had everything and I'm the AS post...

I've never seen executive functioning issues listed in and of themselves as a specific disorder, but I see them on lots of IEPs with autistic students. Organization is such a personal thing to us and has to work in such a specific way for us to get it, that it does at times seem that there is no way...

I think it depends. I am accepted in most circles and people are okay with my oddity. There are times that it is difficult. I don't interview well and so I always feel that there is a chance for discrimination because of that, but then again it could be that I'm just a bad interview. It's hard to sa...

I know alot of people on the spectrum that have had difficult or traumatic births and it seems like an awful huge coincidence to me if it's not a factor. On the other hand, I totally agree that genetics plays a big part in it as well. Especially Asperger's. I am Asperger's and my son is as well. I'v...

It goes the same way as meeting other people except that you have more problems in common. I have a friend who is a little older than me with AS and sometimes that friend is difficult to talk with because of the rigidness this friend maintains in relation to some ideas. We mostly talk about being AS...

I wish! It would be wonderful if there was some sort of NT manual, wouldn't it? But then they'd prolly expect us to write one for them.

My 18 years of experience working with children on the spectrum tells me that doctors tend to use this as a catch all category for when they think it might me autism, but there is speech or some other high functioning characteristics that do not easily fit into the lower functioning autism category....

White noise is essential for most of my functioning. I use TV to go to sleep. Use to drive my hubby crazy, but now with a sleep timer, we have come to a lovely compromise on my need to have the telly on. I tend to use the telly as white noise for most things. I can read or sew or study or do whateve...

It definitely depends on where I'm at. At work, I'm overly super tidy and organised because there are way too many for me to keep track of and to do. I lose track of things so quickly and easily that if I'm not organised, all is lost. At home, my husband often has to dig me out from underneath a pil...

I think that we have something about us that seems to "tell" other people that there's something not the same about us. I used to call it my invisible weird tattoo. In my job, I deal with alot of people on the spectrum, sometimes they don't even know. So, I see alot of spectrumness swimming around. ...

I saw it Christmas day and I thought that they did an excellent job of portraying some of our traits. His ability to swirl all the pieces about in his head and find the patterns, etc. Excellent. Definite lack of social skills and supreme intelligence. He was excellent at this. His quirks and attempt...

I think my favourite was when the psychiatrist asked me, "How can you be autistic. You're obviously not retarded and you are functioning okay. You just need some medicine to make you think better." I went for depression not thinking issues. My other favourite is, "don't you feel guilty about that......

Except for one thing Orwell. Britain is not a liberal democracy, it's a constitutional monarchy.
