Did anyone notice the comments by the church minister... Mark MacLean, minister of Toronto’s St. Andrew’s United Church, has known the Reynoldses since their arrival and was surprised when Chris revealed his medical conditions. “Chris is a very nice kid. I didn’t realize his autism . I just thought ...

I have never been able to sit in a classroom, lecture theater, move cinema or exam hall with somebody sitting behind me! I am also paranoid of people staring at me or people making noise in my vicinity - it intrudes on my train of thought, attention and my overall well being. I cannot stand having ...

Depends on what part of the world you are from. In Australia a "big L" Liberal is a conservative. A small l liberal is labour (or represents the working class).

Your children need social skills training at their school. My son went for this and it helped him a lot BUT he still couldn't make any friends at his CURRENT school because word was already out that he takes a van to school and goes for social skills training. (Parents are WORSE than kids). They ma...

I don;t know about other's but I find I understand my "self" not just metaphorically or existentially but in a way that tells me truthfully what I really am. I think NTs (and perhaps a few Aspies) are too egocentric to "know thyself by thyself".

I'm happy being a lone wolf stalking the suburbs (only when my wife gives me permission).

Even verbal classic kids like my daughter do not have a typical conversation but we talk a lot. I think she understands me better sometimes than I do her but we have our own way of communicating and having conversations.: Since 5.5 yrs my daughter can't stop talking. The problem is getting her to d...

No luckily. But I guess what I'm saying is while they have provided services it's not a great deal, we pay for a lot ourselves. Such is life.

Again mercury and vaccines don't cause aspergers. It has to do with genes. The genetic model seems to be agreed upon despite our knowledge of the process still being murky.
