What are the differences between HFA and Asperger's?

My therapist and doctor believe I have Aspergers. I also believe that my aunt is on the spectrum. I'm 100% sure. She even walked with a gait when young, and developed much slower than her twin, and she is below average intelligence (despite the fact she is an obsessive compulsive hoarder). I developed at a normal rate. Would this mean she is most likely HFA and I am Asperger's? What exactly are the differences?

Aspergers' Syndrome and Lack of Feeling/Morals

Hi, I just have a question, presuming there are some experts on this forum who could assist me. I am a 16-year-old female. Disregard my masculine screenname; this account was used by a friend.


Though I'm resistant to the suggestive thinking of strict labels and such, I do think that my diagnosis of Aspergers' syndrome three years ago has been very beneficial to my home, school and social lives. I do have one question though ...

possibly autism

Hey;


I was told by a psychiatrist that I am learning disabled rather than autistic, and was wondering if it is possible that I am both. After all, tests can be in error.
I do not communicate 99% of the time, even with those I am very close to. I have been combative at times, when I was younger I hung out with people much younger than myself, (I was a teen hanging out with ...

Problem with fake crying

When it's too quiet, my son has started a habit of fake crying and QUITE LOUDLY. Not only that, he wants me to participate!

He seems overly empathic I think. He has a problem with forcefully kissing and hugging people when they're crying or even if they just look upset (he reads emotions quite well).

Does anyone else have a problem with loud fake crying? Have you tried anything to stop it?

-- Sun ...

Does this sound like autism?

Hello folks, I'm new here, and I need a bit of help.

A few people have said I might be autistic. If I am, I would sum up the way it affects me as:

A debilitating inability to stop learning and start doing.

Does this strikes a chord with anyone?

Thanks. (Nearly forgot to put that)

What do I do with this kid?!

My son is six and is very social (inappropriately so). His biggest issues are that he doesn't speak and doesn't really know how to communicate verbally, as well as being hyperactive. Otherwise, he seems almost like your typical kid. Better at music than most, but still. He CAN speak and will read (he taught himself) and sing with no problem. He also likes to find teaching books at the book store and I've noticed that ...

Urinating in bedroom?

I have been caring for an eleven year old with severe autism for six years. Around six months ago I came home to find a carer had him locked in his room.. it eventuated that he had hit her and she'd locked him in his room to keep herself safe (not that he's capable of causing much harm). Since then he has been urinating in his room. Anyone have any ideas how to stop this? ...

Would like to know about high functiong ASD as adults

Hi, I'm new here. My son, age six, was dx'd at age 2.5 with PDD-NOS. We have not had him retested, but our doc thinks Aspergers now. He is very smart, loves other kids, has some quirks, but over all looks " normal". My question is really about his future. I don't know any ASD adults and therefore have no idea what possibilities are open to him. I want college and a job, possibly a ...

Ring Chromosome

Hello everyone,

My youngest son (who is now 9) was diagnosed as PDD-NOS with autism like behaviors when he was in kindergarten. The schools were awful so my ex-husband now homeschools him.

But my question lays deeper. At one of his therapy sessions it was suggested that we have his genotype mapped. This was quite strange to me but after we figured out what we needed to do, we found out that our son has ...
