How people behave in relation toward us, you, all of us is a reflection on them. The bus driver is mean and projecting onto you. He has a duty of care for the people on his/her/their bus and being mean is a relection of him, not you. You are perfect. He likely hates his job, who knows, but you did n...

I think its fair to realise some people are high functioning and undetectable. Function well in jobs and social relations in life and have friendships amongst colleagues or a social relationship. Do well with customer service. Because I see the struggle of someone I love (my adult daughter) and what...

I think my daughter has this and its a condition called alexithymia, inability to express thoughts and feelings. She can rarely tell me what she thinks or feels. Can’t express socially. We get better with it via the iPad, but its a long haul.

Autistic people make "excellent" narcissists, and it's a real problem we have to fight against. This site even has some people on there who think being mentally disordered makes them Human 2.0, and that is a classic recipe. We've got it tough but we are capable of making it that much toug...

I'm a parent seeking to understand. My daughter is 22 attends 'social connections' with a support worker. Is very good looking but with very low confidence, with no assertiveness for her boundaries. She is on Facebook and has some male autistic friends on messenger, that also attend 'social connecti...

Currently she meets a guy 22 at Leggo club each week, they the only participants . Are you saying that the Leggo club is regularly attended by only two people, or that only two of the possibly many more people there actually build anything? Its Leggo Club, but only this guy builds things, and his s...

It should be noted that speed impediment does not necessarily translate into lower functioning. It could difficult for people to communicate when they have difficulty with speech....but people, and lovers, get around that and find alternative communication methods. I don’t sense that the potential ...

Probably a common question. Do NT folks get with Aspies romantically and is this successful? My daughter is 22 extremely shy and doesn't get involved in mainstream social events. She is friendly, but never starts or initiates any conversation. She is more responsive with one on one. Currently she m...

To be honest, I don't see why you are concerned with this guy's issues. But since it does seem to concern you, you could maybe try talking to him next time, just say hello, how are you doing, or whatever. And then maybe mention that your daughter doesn't talk much, if that seems appropriate. I gues...

Based off of my experience, a common trait of awkwardness between two people don't usually lead to friendship/relationship. If anything, it's doubles the awkwardness. So if there's any chance of the two becoming friends or more than that, you're gonna have to be the one to take action. You could as...

There are some really cool t shirts out there, that aren't outright, but imply AS. Just a picture of a puzzle piece print on front. My daughter has a white t shirt that says nice person, wrong planet. We do it in fun fashion way. Dont want to wear a sticker or badge that says, please be patient with...

Is it ok to reach out to a fellow anxiety sufferer? Even though you see them weekly in customer service and thats all you know about them. I think my daughter makes him extremely nervous. My daughter is Aspergian and quiet beautiful to look at. She is very anti social and is going to speak with no o...
