I do believe I'm a little shorter than an average woman. I'm 162 cm (almost 5'4").

My Aspie daughter also has giant feet. She is 11 and she is wearing size 8 (40). Her feet are the same size as mine already! And she is not as tall as I am - she is still a couple inches shorter.


I'm rocking a size 12. :lol:

Is the average person with Aspergers taller than the average person?


Why should there be a connection?

I'm 5'6 1/4, which is just a little above average for a female. And no, I don't think anyone with Asperger is taller than the average person. I know some people with it who are shorter than me! All these speculations about something being linked to it actually disturbs me!

Why don't you use metric system on international forums? Am I the only non-American here?


for better or worse, americans just don't do metric.


I'm approximately 175 cm in height, which is apparently tall for a woman. I also kept growing into my 20s (I was approximately 170 cm when I was 21).

Unless my math is completely off, that would be 5'9" and 5'7" respectively.

I don't believe height and autistic spectrum disorders correlate.

I think I'm about 6ft or 6ft 1. Obviously loads of research would have to be done to know one way or the other, must admit most of the aspies I have met have erred on the tall side.
