he said that maybe all of us were secretly planning to take over the world but then when we did all we would do is say "Just to let you all know we took over the world so ya nothing changed we just wanted to let you know"

that's probably not what he exactly said but it probably is true XD

Sorry to be a little off topic, but what do doctors do to diagnose AS? I would like to know very much.

They perform a frontal lobe lobotomy.




But seriously, tons of questions and tests etc. Some open ended response.

With children it is different. A lot more obsvation in some cases (playing etc).

With a teen, I would imagine it would be much like an adult. It would likely revolve more around academic performance, interactions at school, and family life. A 13 year old may not be able to comprehend everything as well as an adult so it would be important to find a therapist that he/she could relate to, i.e. someone that has experience with teens.
