ASD Symptoms – I See Autistic People

Category: ASD Symptoms

Disregard for Authority – ASD Symptom

Appearing to having a disregard for people in authority is a major clue that someone is on the autistic spectrum. If you think that must include all individuals who regularly misbehave, then yes, those are the numbers we are talking about, that potentially have ASD. This symptom also inlcudes resenting being told what to do. […]

Aggressive Outbursts: ASD Symptom

Not everyone with high functioning Autistic Spectrum Disorder has aggressive outbursts or anger issues, but many do. And it is to do with nervousness and the inability to cope well with stress. The characteristics such as anger, being argumentative and confrontational are inherent, but they lie dormant under normal circumstances. It is when the individual […]

Obsessions: ASD Symptom

Many people with ASD have obsessive personality traits. Collectors are obsessive. You might know someone who collects elephants or pigs, for example. They will not be able to resist buying the things they collect, and they will talk about them a lot. This will prompt people to buy them these items as presents, and before […]

Dyslexia – ASD Symptom

Dyslexia, like ADHD, is caused by an under-developed cerebellum, and is an Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Many people who have it will also have other AS disorders, and be related to people with ASD. Most people think of Dyslexia as being only a reading disorder, or reading disability. In fact the word Dyslexia is made up […]

Argumentative: ASD Symptom

This is another big sign that someone is on the autistic spectrum, even if only mildly. I think there are several reasons that people with ASD will regularly argue with others. Their lack of perception will prevent them from recognising when and where is not the right time and place to get into an argument. […]

Panic Attacks – ASD Symptom

Panic attacks are common with people on the Autistic Spectrum who have anxiety. They can affect people differently. People can have very obvious signs, such as palpitations, hyperventilating, or skin reactions. Others have increased heart rate and breathing. I tend to have rapid breathing, and there never seems to be enough oxygen in the air. […]

Poor Relationships – ASD Symptom

Because obsession is part of a lot of ASD lives, some people on the autistic spectrum seem to go crazy when they fall for someone; they become an emotional wreck, and make themselves really ill. Unrequited love is a common thing for people with High Functioning Autism. In extreme cases, some will develop stalker-like behavior, […]

Highly Ambitious – ASD Symptom

“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings” – Salvador Dali   Being highly ambitious is more common than you might think, among people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder; notably Asperger Syndrome. As you may have picked up on this site, I believe that Bipolar Disorder is the resulting condition/symptom of having Aspergers Syndrome, and therefore […]

Stress Related Illness – ASD Symptoms

Many people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder are also affected by other stress-related physical illnesses. While ASD might not be directly responsible for the stress, its effect can lead to stress, through one of the many avenues that a person with ASD will take. For example; shyness, embarrassment, inconfidence, nervousness, communication problems, social issues, peer pressure, […]

Pragmatic – ASD Symptom

A lot of people with Aspergers and other autistic spectrum disorders are unable to see the point in doing anything unless they first know the reasons why. Pragmatic people are very inquisitive, and sometimes this is endearing. And sometimes it is exasperating. It can cause a lot of friction between parents and children at times, […]

Arrogance – ASD Symptom

When we refer to someone as arrogant, we nearly always think of arrogant as obnoxious and impossible. There can be a thin line between confidence and arrogance, but confidence can be feigned, and often arrogance is the result of an inconfident person who has tried too hard to over-compensate. Many people on the autistic spectrum […]

Irritable – ASD Symptom

Being irritable is known by most people to be a result of tiredness. Many parents know it to be a result of tiredness, hunger, pain, discomfort, illness, not getting his or her own way, etc. But when a person is also on the Autistic Spectrum, those niggling causes often produce much more intense irritability. A […]

Intolerance: Aspergers Symptom

Although intolerance can be a symptom of all Autistic Spectrum Disorders, it is a very prominent symptom of Asperger Disorder. Most sufferers will particular intolerances unique to them, and even be the source of many jokes from their family and friends A strong dislike of change to a routine is a very common symptom of […]
