I was born at 32 weeks, but I was larger than most for 32 weeks. I weighed 5lbs. My mother started bleeding and was rushed to the hospital and out I went.

That being said like I said in the prior post their are some serious genetic disorders strongly associated with Autism, including Retts, Fragile X, and RASopathies such as NF1. Anyone with these conditions should be evaluated to see if they fall into Autism Spectrum. These all have something big in ...

There are some genes that have been identified as being associated with autism but only in a small percentage of people and they each only contribute a small amount to the disorder. Many genes are thought to contribute to autism and some environmental factors too (though the genes contribute more)....

There are no known genetic test for Autism, and no known genes strongly associated with Autism.

Yes, I was premature, but not by much. A couple of weeks, I think--I was home from the hospital in the same time that any newborn is. I was on the small end of the typical newborn weight range. I was born with congenital hip dysplasia, but that resolved itself with some time in a brace, as it usual...

Their is no way for things in your work and social life to be different because of a diagnosis, since that is a private issue and they won't know unless you tell them.

Just so you know not all RBRus have these obsessions or special interest over over these narrow topics. Many on the spectrum have little to no sensory issues. I don't see anything that shows you are not on the spectrum. Autism has a triad of impairments. If it doesn't impair then it's not autism. A...

When people insist that it's necessary and possible to overcome disabilities with sheer force of will. While all aspects of ASD as a disability can't be overcome with effort, for many people on the spectrum things like obvious public stimming such as rocking and flapping hands can be. There is abso...

Someone who wears ear defenders is probably more likely to be low functioning. Having very sensitive hearing is related to being low functioning? I don't see how you come to that conclusion. And why ask if people have handlers? If you want to find out if they are "low functioning," why not just ask...

If you do use them, do you have handler near by to keep you in control and safe? What does this mean? Someone with you at all times in public, makes sure you are safe and others are safe from you. What does that have to do with wearing ear defenders? Someone who wears ear defenders is probably more...

I'm looking for some ear defenders I can wear at work to help block out noise. Does anyone have any recommendations for ear defenders that would be comfortable to wear 8+ hours a day, and block out a lot of noise (particularly conversations)? I can't listen to music at work unfortunately to drown o...
