I think people with AS are just born milder on the spectrum while people with HFA either grew out of LFA or got misdiagnosed. Another theory could be that AS is HFA or that AS could indeed include a speech delay in some cases. In my opinion, HFA is just a synonym for AS or autism without mental reta...

I have the same problem with the music playing in my head. It is almost constantly playing in my head over and over again and it freaks me out and makes me nervous because I can never be 100% ''there'' socially and mentally. If I listen to music while doing something, I can focus a lot better becaus...

Eye contact makes me cringe and it also gives me great pain. I can make eye contact with familiar people [ie: friends and family] but not with certain people and strangers.

That was really good! Towards the end, I could see your mention to the human spectrum, which implies that we are humans and neurodiversity should be widely accepted.

It's more of a difference than a disability.

I could name what day of the week any date fell on at age 2
I couldn't sleep too well or too much
I was very quiet and passive
I couldn't digest food too well (I needed to drink bottle milk with rice in it)

It's very possible that Kurt Cobain had AS. For example, if you look at the performance of ''Where Did You Sleep Last Night'' on MTV Unplugged, he had this blank stare towards the end of the song. Also, all of the stuff described above in this post (weird habits, collections, lack of eye contact, pe...

If it wasn't for my autism, I wouldn't be able to determine the day of the week that any day falls on since I was born. Autism is not a curse, it's a special gift that only special people deserve and have.

Part of it depends on your friend's social skills. If he has ADHD, he will probably be moderately to highly social. If he has Asperger's, he will probably be a bit eccentric and introverted (not very social).
