There was a story in the news a few days ago about a hermit that lived on an island alone for 30 years. Japanese hermit forced to give up his remote island. In the back of my mind I was considering the possibility that he might be an Aspie. Here is another link. Japanese island man lives as naked he...

I don't hate myself. It is probably because I have INTJ personality traits. Actually I like myself a lot.

When my daughters were small my wife and I took them shopping all the time at the Malls. My daughter would come up to me with some clothes and ask if I would buy it for her. I asked if it was on sale. She was really small at the time and could barely read. I showed her that at the top of a rack, the...

I may not be of much help. Some Aspies find it easier to learn reading by reading out loud. So you might have him read you a bedtime story. When I was young I really liked reading comic books. That is where I started and then eventually I found the Hardy Boys series. I didn't like to read until latt...

One of the ways that I helped my daughters was that my wife and I gave our children real life skills. Many Aspies prefer hands on experiences. Every time an individual learns a new life task successfully, the individual becomes more confident, feels greater self worth and value, is better able to wi...

I have noticed that with children they will begin to comprehend language about 6 months to a year before they begin to speak. Sometimes when they begin to talk, it is very remarkable because they not only communicate well but use four syllable words and you wonder where they learned that. I cannot b...

I have no desire to be popular. I am not jealous of popular people. Realize this. Fifty percent of the world are introverts and fifty percent are extroverts. Aspies only make up a small percentage of introverts. In general, introverts are happy being introverts and extroverts are happy being extrove...

From my perception: If you are an adult Aspie then learn to manage fear. The more fearless you become, the more you will shed many of your negative traits. These negative traits include: hypersensitivity to senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch), sensory overload and shutdowns, gastrointes...

When I was a young boy I would always look down. Sometimes I would go to store without a penny in my pocket. Generally by the time I reached the store around a mile away, I had enough money to buy a candy bar. It is interesting all the things you can find discarded along the road. Also back in those...

I have never been to the ER. But sometime between the age of 2-5 I was kicked in the head by a large bull. It knocked me unconscious. Back in those days there were no 911 to call and it might have even been before ERs were invented. Anyways my parents took my limp body and laid me on my bed and wait...
