I am a diagnosed Aspie. I disagree with the premises, though, having never seen Heather Kuzmich, I don't know whether or not the conclusion is correct. Just something as simple as making eye contact remains something that an Apserger's person has to do consciously. It's a social rule that they're t...

First of all, this isn't the way to do this - there are channels for putting your complaints through to a mod privately , rather than in a public forum like this. Second, unless you believe that dyingofpoetry knows who you are and where you live, and has the resources to hire a 24-hr camera crew, h...

In my thread, Heather Kuzmich does NOT have Asperger's (misdiangosed) has unprofessional, unethically violated forum rules by threatening me "How about we follow you around with a camera to create a training DVD to show what a troll looks like?" insulting "troll" and numerous forum violations. dying...

That's okay, but according to Tangerine's philosophy, I should not have been able to tell that he was a troll at all, [...] That's terribly, terribly, mean: trolling a group of people you believe are incapable of realizing that you are toying with them! Never mind that some of us *can* spot it; if ...

The diagnostic criteria states "(A) marked impairments in the use of multiple nonverbal behaviors such as eye-to-eye gaze, facial expression, body posture, and gestures to regulate social interaction" That's an option in a list. True, it is one of only 4 options, and a diagnosis requires at least 2...

regardless of editting, are these statements accurate about AS? Would a person with AS have the capability to grow beyond " person with AS does not show ease in understanding and use nonverbals"? Does the author make factually true statements about AS? I don't remember Heather understanding and res...

I do think the claims he puts forwards sounds persuasive, and as I have seen Cycle 9 of ANTM, I believe it is factually supportable with video tape evidence. re: "I _am_ concerned about the possibility that people are being misdiagnosed" How do you feel about the author's stated intent to create a ...

How do you feel about the author's stated intent to create a training DVD to show how AS is MISDIAGNOSED using Heather as evidence? Does she have Ms Kuzmich's permission to use her image in such videos? If not, then to do so is unethical, and possibly illegal. Either Ms. Kuzmich's lawyer or the sho...

I think it's unwise to try to diagnose someone you have never spoken to personally, based just on how they appear on TV. I'm worried that this sort of thinking creates a "no-win scenario" for those diagnosed with Asperger's. If we want others to believe we have our own struggles, we have to resign ...

Ok, I think I get it. You just want an answer of yes. Well, my answer here is no. The "expert" needs to deal with Heather directly and then go from there with whatever agenda they plan to push. I don't necessarily want an answer of yes or no, only whether the reasoning is sound: would a person with...

If this "professional" doesn't have access (and it doesn't sound like they do) to her medical records, personally interviewed her (and everything else done in her original assessment), then he/she has no way to make a diagnosis one way or the other. And if he's not monitoring her 24/7 he doesn't se...

I don't trust anything coming from the website TVWoP. That said, I couldn't do what she did and go on a show and have people following all the time, I'd totally freak out. Perhaps she is just stronger than most. Wait, so a "professional" who has only seen her in edited video clips from a reality sh...

that psych is only using the more severe definition of it as the only acceptable form for diagnosis. Thats just simply how I view it. It kinda reminds me of that whole Aspiechu thing. the person who it makes fun of was this guy who said there is only sever autism, everything else is normal, or some...

Unless the demographics of your school warrant it, then it is unlikely that they will hire an adjunct professional for your exclusive needs. It would be appropriate for them in that case to refer you to an independent specialist for you to consult. I would not expect them to pay for, reimburse, or ...

Do you think Heather Kuzmich have Asperger's? Do you think she might be misdiagnosed? Is she too social and high functioning to disqualify for AS? An clinical psych thought so. This person wrote that not only does Heather Kuzmich not have diagnosis, but that s/he uses clips to show how Heather is an...
