Would you have a complete list of characteristics found in people with Aspergers? Answer Below is a fairly exhaustive list of Aspergers high functioning autistic characteristics; however, keep in mind that no two “Aspies” are the exactly the same, and no single Aspie has ALL these traits. If you suspect your child or partner has Aspergers, the best thing you can do, as a parent or spouse, is arm yourself with information about this disorder.

Helping my son is so much easier these days. I only wish I had found all of this out years ago. Although my story has a positive ending, I met many people during my research whose stories were not ending well. They were struggling to make it through each day, constantly sick with worry that something horrible would happen to their loved one before the Aspergers was brought under control. They were struggling to answer questions like: With the information I learned, I would be able to help other families overcome, and even prevent, the tremendous obstacles my son has had to conquer.

HOW TO SPOT ASPERGER’S SYNDROME

There exists a lack of awareness in interpreting social cues; a skill that most of us take for granted. Given that inability, it can be extremely difficult for the family and friends of an Aspergers family member to cope with many of the behavior patterns typically exhibited. As Aspergers is a relatively recently classified disorder, an adult’s diagnosis with the disorder may occur after the diagnosis of a child or a grandchild. When this occurs, family members often then relate the behaviors of the newly-diagnosed youngster to that of the lifelong behavior patterns of a parent or spouse.

This “Ah-ha” phenomenon is often accompanied by relief on the part of family members, but with it comes grief when the realization hits home that there is little likelihood of gross changes in the Aspergers adult. For instance, the daughter whose son is diagnosed with Aspergers may then realize that her father had the same constellation of symptoms, and the reason for her father’s apparent disconnectedness, coldness, and inability to empathize with her suddenly becomes crystal clear.

Oct 15,  · Asperger’s syndrome is a neurobiological disorder considered to be part of the autism spectrum. The exact cause of the condition is unknown, although many experts believe there is a hereditary component. Asperger’s syndrome can affect people of all races and socioeconomic backgrounds, although it is three to four times more common among men.

So, based on my own experience , here are some concrete rules for doing better at work if you have Asperger’s, and maybe if you don’t. Spend limited amounts of time with people. One of the things that is alarming to non-Asperger’s people is how few friends and relationships people with Asperger’s have. But I have never heard anyone with Asperger’s lament this. Temple Grandin is a good example. It’s not something we feel a loss about.

We only need a small amount of closeness in our life. What I do hear Asperger’s people sad about all the time is a lack of employment opportunity. The way to improve this is to spend less time with people. We can be normal in small spurts. We can look charming and quirky in small doses but in large doses, it’s overwhelming.

So go out to dinner, but then go home. Go to the company picnic, but just talk with people for a little bit.
