High level Autism or something else?

Hi phone - First, I want to apologize if this is not the correct forum to post this. But I was not sure where else to start.

I have a brother-in-law with "Problems". I say it that way because the parents have never gotten him tested. He is my wife's brother and she does not want to be around him if at all possible.

Let me give you some examples:

He was living at his ...

Hey guys! Need your help! (might be fun!)

Hi. I am an illustrator, and I am currently working on a piece about Autism. I have my concept down, but to flesh it out more I wanted to do some research- and you know I could read as many books or articles about it as there are in the world, but that won't tell me how it feels.

So that's why I want to ask you. I need your help to understand how I ...

EEGs to diagnose developmental disorders

I just saw this video and thought that some other people might be interested in it. It is related to all sorts of developmental disorders, but they talk about autism the most, so I am posting it here.

A drawing of a lighthouse


When my son was diagnosed with autism a few years back, i found a drawing somewhere on the web, that was the first clue into how the world of an asperger / autist (didnt really know the true words for it at the time) looks like.

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.
