Welcome to the Wrong Planet :D. Your AQ score is quite high for an undiagnosed aspie. If you really want to add up traits and self diagnose, you should look at the DSM criteria because traits like imagination are not part of the diagnosis DSM-5 Criteria . The 4 autistic types that Lorna Wing describ...

The start date seems to be disputable, but since Trump DIDN'T GET REELECTED I'll take this as the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius. I'll work a new refrain to replace "Peace, Love, Woodstock" for this new social awakening. How about "Peace, Sustainability, Diversity" 8).

Aspergers has been removed as an official diagnosis for good reason, IMO. It had become the name for mild autism, which was probably what was mostly intended by the criteria for diagnosis. I think there was a concern that using the term "autism" for all of ASD people would discourage the d...

I vote for the confederate flag guy who had to mix a little racism into the riot :(. By favorite, I mean most deplorable. If you are pro-riot please state that.

Whatever they did with her face, someone would have an issue with it :roll:. I don't think it will be successful, but the fact that they tried it is a good sign. It shows that they think there are enough parents, kids who want to positively identify with autism. The puzzle pieces are disappointing. ...

I was largely a free-range kid. I would think this is quite common when one or both parents are ND. My daughter tells me an ASD friend gets tracked by her parents through her phone. She goes on a bike ride and they track her down. She is attending college :roll:. My daughter thinks they are being he...

Autistic people usually have what we call a uneven (spikey) cognitive profile. There are many extreme examples of this: the autistic savant, Einstein - a "genius" who had trouble tying his shoelaces, etc. When people throw around IQ numbers related to autism, they usual just create confusi...

Since IQ is genetic, I have difficulty considering how it could be called "developmental". I also have difficulty understanding the use of the word "disorder". Developmental means it hampers development not that it results from development. Disorder does seem just as inappropria...

Welcome to Wrong Planet :D. Tell the person who think you "look like a serial killer" to get a job as a detective. They need someone who can spot serial killers by their look :roll:. I scare some people to. I suppose when our affect makes it hard for others to read our emotional state that...

I am planning on disclosing to my sister when I see her again. I think her most likely reaction will be along the lines of "no sh*t, Sherlock" :lol:. She has worked as a preschool teacher not long ago, so is probably quite familiar with the condition. So I am thinking any of the terms will...

I just hope it's not a decade long party like after the 1918 pandemic. Followed by a big crash :(. But you know what they say, history repeats itself. It will be a chance to visit family again. I will be running in races again, hopefully by next summer. There's much I will miss about all this though...
