Some people say this is asperger symptoms and other people say it is not.
Do you know what it could be ?

I have a lot of trouble with simple calculation and sometime very simple calculation, I still don't know where is left and right (I need concentration to know it), I need concentration to read a digital clock.

I don't always know which season it is and here it's easy to know it because summertime weather is very hot and winter we have a lots of snow (lol).

Sometime I don't use the good word, ex: if want to say the wall is white, I know that the color is white but I'll say blue ...

I have a lot of trouble to spell simple words (often I will write it before to spell it), if I have to write a phone number, you should spell it slowly and I often don't write the good numbers (6 instead of 3 and ...).

When I was at school I succeed every years except some calculation courses. I had good result in programming classes and got professional computer certification.

And of course I have the same social and communication problems as many of you.

You definitely sound like you've got Learning Disabilities in mathematical and spatial areas. Possibly Nonverbal Learning Disorder, which happens often with Aspergers but also shows social problems of its own. Although it doesn't show as much language disruption as you're showing.

That's about all I could say from what you've given. Aspergers is possible. Nonverbal LD seems probable.

Everything you said except for the last one did not sound like aspergers at all. it sounds like you have something else.

Here at Wrong Planet, we accept all kinds! (Except for many of the guys at Cure Autism Now and Autism Speaks, they've got the wrong idea going there)

Another thing to consider(please dont be offended because I am just speaking from experience)is some form of MS or other degenerative illness that may effect your CN system.Is English your first language?My boyfriend has MS(multiple sclerosis)and although he very very intelligent in most areas...he has some cognitive functions that are "retarded" due to the MS.One of my paranoia's with people with AS is that they will assume every unusual "trait" is due to AS and over look a medical cause that may get worse if not treated.I think it would be a good idea to see a neurologist just to rule out any thing like this.

NLD can occur with AS. About 40% of the time in fact.
