Combination of broadened diagnostic criteria and changes in society that make it harder to function. The broaden diagnostic criteria has been massively discussed so I won't here .

There is a technique called "disclosing the symptoms". Instead of saying "I have Aspergers" He can say "loud noises bother me" or "I like to concentrate on one thing at a time" etc. There have a specific section for Parents of Aurtistic children here. http://www.wrongplanet.net/forum19.html Of cours...
