Asperger Syndrome – I See Autistic People

Category: Asperger Syndrome

Child Genius Documentary 2013

I watched Child Genius on Channel 4 last night and last week’s first episode too. I always find Genius documentaries interesting because all geniuses are autistic savants. But the word ‘Autism’ was not mentioned once throughout the documentary, because to most people, Autism is something WRONG with the brain; not something RIGHT with it. So […]

Autistic Kids Don’t Copy Pointless Actions

A new study of children with autism, finds that they miss out actions they deem to be pointless, when copying adults. Rachael Rettner, writes of the study at MyHealthNewsDaily. While children without an autism diagnosis copied every step of a task that an adult showed them, the autistic children only did the steps they thought […]

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 […]

The Growing Pains of a Teenage Genius

This week I was lucky to catch a TV documentary from last year on BBC iPlayer while it was still available; The Growing Pains of a Teenage Genius, about a 13-year-old autistic savant, Cameron Thompson, who was doing an Open University degree course in mathematics. He has a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome and he doesn’t […]

Big Brother

I have a love/hate relationship with Big Brother, the TV show. Sometimes I hate the pettiness of some of the small-minded people, and an awful lot of the people attracted to applying for a show like this are very insecure, egotistical, selfish, argumentative, intolerant… …hang on a minute…? 😉  – which brings me to why […]

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. […]

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, […]

Being Argumentative – ASD Symptom

Being regularly argumentative is a big sign that a person could have high functioning Autistic Spectrum Disorder, and Aspergers in particular. I think it comes from a need to be heard and taken seriously, as well as often having to have the last word. The latter being of course to do with ego and insecurity. […]

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 […]
