Welcome. You have found a good place to ask questions. I am not sure a diagnosis would be that helpful. A diagnosis of a bacterial infection and a prescription of an antibiotic would be helpful to combat that sort of illness. Aspergers (now called ASD) is more a result of a neurology that is more se...

There are a number of bad choices one can make that can lead to despair. There can be a way out, but it can be hard and require perseverance.

Consider a group like AA or NA where people have been able to recover a life from addiction.

I seldom consider the government a source of accurate or even useful information.

My youngest daughter was shy as you describe. She had selective mutism. We found that sometimes we could communicate in writing to help work around the difficulty she had in communicating face to face. As she grew older she worked at developing management skills to better deal with an anxiety causin...

As an older student, you may be relate-able to recent alumni. If you can contact one in your field, they may be open to discussing their experiences at the school and offer some suggestions particular to that institution.

Many parents are exposed to Aspergers (now ASD) through school and are told to approach it as a medical condition to be treated therapeutically. You might consider viewing some of the Tony Attwood videos on Youtube and the free pdf booklet Aspergers - An Intentional Life

Christian - non-denominational I was in Japan on business many years ago and talking with a gal when I asked her if she was religious. She responded that she had felt bad at different times in her life before, but never bad enough to consider religion. For me that was an interesting response as I ha...

When I supervised employees, I would say, "We don't fire people for making mistakes. We fire people who refuse to correct them". A person can come to see self-harm as providing a sort of soothing sense of control as well as a "payment" of some sort. However, gaining anxiety relie...

If one considers Aspergers to be a neurology that is more complex, sensitive, or fast, one should expect to see a greater sensitivity to the environment and even one's own thoughts. Considering how taxing the world can be for neurotypical people, one can imagine the toll it can take on those more se...

You might see this reference as interesting. It seems that expositions derives from "exhibits" as nations demonstrated their industrial achievements.

It might help to wear a cap or even something like a ski mask at night so that to get to his hair, he would have to be awake enough to take it off. You might also consider a crew cut so that their hair was not long enough to get a hold of.

Most people associate "therapy" with correction. Aspergers is different than having been in a car accident and trying to regain function. What is needed is his development of skills so that he can have self-control of his life. To do this several things are needed. skills in forgoing immed...

There might be a difference between being focused and obsessional. The difference might be the degree of control one has. A friend going through medical school once commented about his rotation in surgery that all of the stereotypes one has heard about surgeons was true (focused to the point of rude...

Ear plugs can help.

The council might be able to put up sheets of foam or fiberglass insulation which can lower sound transmission.

If possible, you might find subsidized housing in a rural area.

Good luck.

There are two potential areas of concern. The actual class and the social environment. Both may be impacting your daughter. A private school might be an option to experiment with. However some may even make things worse. A less rigid school may offer some possibilities such as one on the Montessori ...
