It is my belief that there are a lot more symptoms of High Functioning ASD than other sources claim. Many of the symptoms listed below cover a wide range of autistic conditions. They are my own opinions developed from the people I have studied and from my own experiences. I am currently in the process of writing an article on each symptom to explain them further. I will also indicate which symptoms of ASD are acknowledged officially by professionals. They are being updated regularly.


Actually a lot of the symptoms above are simply signs of nervousness and an inability to cope with stress. But to be honest, that in a nutshell is what I actually believe high functioning ASD largely consists of. But not everyone with ASD has anxiety issues. Lots of people with ADHD for example (or ADHD characteristics) are perfectly happy, such as my Dad. And Jedward!

  1. This is a bit much. What am I supposed to do with that list, how many boxes do I have to tick to start wondering if I am on the spectrum? A lot, if not most of these things are common traits in people.

  2. That’s the whole point of this site Peter. I do think it’s possible that more than half of everyone is somewhere on the spectrum, even if only a little bit. I also believe all mental health issues could possibly be under the umbrella of ASD. See the home page for exactly what this site is about.
