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 ...

What autism really is.

Hi guys. I came here to tell you that I autism is not genetic! Explanation marks times 100. :D
It is caused by toxins. That's right, anything not made from mother nature may as well be considered toxic. And the person reading this now (you) is autistic than I have a good reason why you are. And that rest with good news... it can be CURED!!!!!!!! ...

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.

In summary, a new technology has been developed to diagnose developmental disorders more accurately using EGG (Electroencephalography). EGG allows doctors to actually look at the patient's brain waves ...

A drawing of a lighthouse

Hi

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.

It was a drawing of a lighthouse (saying that i have the ability to shine my light on subjects very far away and draw them near). And maybe ...

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 ...
