In the new dsm they did away with autism subtypes. Personally I think they should have added more. I feel pretty confident that many of those subtypes are going to end up being reinstated. There's research already coming out indicating that AS/HFA and Classic Autism actually have some distinctly di...

As mentioned there are are social skills classes. Others of us have learned by observing and reading. My 5 decades of experience is that a lot will figure you are different it is up to you to adjust, others will figure since they have have some if these problems they understand and expect you to suc...

Funny thing is I don't need or want to "cure" myself of being an Aspie, I like it just the way it is. And yes, I am well aware of needing to wash and change my clothes often. I want to cure myself. I'm always in awe of how much things NTs can get done in one day. They can get up early, arrive more ...

I don't think vague but broad to the point of possibly being meaningless I would agree with.

Now I get it and understand. I have felt the same way and compensated in a similar way to Toy Soldier. Is the school library open late? If not the public library probably is. And the thing about libraries is that they are QUIET and they have computers also.

WOW this has to be one of the most poignant posts I've ever read on WP, and YES, it does make perfect sense to me!! ! 8O It's quite the synopsis of neurotypical tribalism that seems so deeply ingrained in their psyche, and that the ones with the most integrity, best work ethic, highest IQ and what ...

None of these would seem like anyone elses dream jobs, but I feel that I have obtained most of mine. as a young girl I was horribly bullied, was unofficialy voted the "weirdest looking chick" and 'the girl I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole" I would fantasize what it would be like to be a girl t...

Agree because of the stated above and youtube etc nothing will die out. I can see in the 2050's dubstep reunion tours and neo dubstep. A more interesting can anything really new be born?

I would definitely much rather be NT. An entire world with people as socially awkward as me would not be a good thing at all. We're no more oblivious or indifferent to things like that than NTs are. But would I be socially awkward if I understood most peoples social signals because they would be li...

I don't know you so I can only generalize. An aspie trait is having "special interests". The difference between special interests and hobbys is that special interests do crowd out other activities. In the days and months following diagnoses many have Aspergers become a special interest because so mu...
