A syndrome which as it's causes and ouputs questioned by many if it is a syndrome not too that those people know nothing of psychology and medicine.
It is a fact that all asperger's miss a certain type of protein in their blood so it can't be a subjective matter, it is indeed caused by the 'disfunction' of something.
Of course you have all kinds of asperger's even some that can function in a normal invironment and claim the decease is not understood and that they are misintepreted and wronged. Erm well.. 50 years ago I wouldn't have been an asperger, my reluctance to make eyecontact or my agression towards people that don't use SI units would have just been beaten out of me, and because that wouldn't work I would've been marked as stubborn. Now I'm getting extra (money costing) help by the goverment to guide me in my life so shut the frogpie up that asperger's isn't understoot, that's nonsense. Of course on the other hand you have the people that fail too see that it is in fact a disorder caused by a genetic imperfection that alters the way the mind of the specimen works.
It is not the case that it are character traits everyone has, that's how it would apear to someone unfamilair with psychology, asperger's have totally different motivations. For instance some won't like being touched, not because they don't like the person but because they are oversensity to stimulus and a shock goes through their entire body when they are touched, others will defend themselves when they are neared in a way that would seem as if they don't like the person nearing them while really the see it as if the person is trying to attack them.
As early as 2 years old they noticed I couldn't make normal contact, at 4 year old it was shown that my intellect was unusually high, at 6 years old I was heavely depressed at school and frustrated and affraid of the children around me without realising that myself. At 8 years old I was put into and institute which labled me an asperger's syndromer, now, seventeen years old with antipsychotics medication I can to somewhat of an extend have friendships although they aren't really healthy because I'm always paranoid about the intentions of my friends though I try to ignore that. Eventually I'll study physics.
Is a way of being and is just as good as anyone else.you just have some social trouble and have a different neurology
I have asperger's syndrome.
Just a sceintific neurological term for one with a superior mind to that of a common human. Generally dose not care about social life because he knows that in the long run they have no meaning. Often times, a human with this advantage has an area of near absolute knowlegde, commonly a mathmateical subject. However, it is not unusal for one with this variation of autism to have a vocabualry superior to that of his peers. Within the limbo of autsic and normal, humans with asperger's syndrome are form two words.
However, the common man (because of his natural fear of what he dose not understand) often considers a man with said advantage to be a retard because of his lack of social skills. But intellectually speaking, humans with asperger's syndrome are more intelligent than the common man. Hyperlexia is also common amongst these neurological variations of humans.
"I have asperger's syndrome, therefore I am mentally superior to that of my jock peer. BWAHAHAHA!!!"
A neurological disorder with a variety of symptoms. It is a milder form of autism.
One who has Asperger's (often shortned to AS) is likely to have social difficulties, and may experience speech delays or problems with motoric skills.
It is important to understand that there is a spectrum, where one can have mild AS or severe AS, and most symptoms can be mild or severe as well.
People with AS have a tendency to be loners due to social difficulties. They may have trouble making eye contact, starting conversations, or they will obsess over a certain subject.
A list of all symptoms would be long and is more fitting to an encyclopedia or psycological handbook than a dictionary.
People with Asperger's Syndrome are not neccesarily less intelligent as stereotypes would have one believe.
He has trouble making friends because he has Asperger's Syndrome.
Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) is a neurodevelopmental condition related to the autism spectrum. Affected individuals (usually of normal or above average intelligence, capable of intense focus, strong attention to detail, painstaking adherence to policies and procedures, unorthodox problem-solving and high productivity in the areas of their interests and aptitudes) are prone to motor coordination impairments, sensory oversensitivities, have difficulty interacting socially along “unwritten rules”, reading nonverbal language or navigating workplace politics, may prefer solitary activities and are often viewed as eccentric. As a tragic result, many end up un- or underemployed and on the receiving end of prejudice , bullying , negative stereotyping, harassment and discrimination.
Here's a victory story about a SoCal woman with Asperger's Syndrome who stood firm and fought a good fight -- and won her case against an employer! It's people like this who make life better for Aspies who are not able to break through on their own, who rely on others to carve a path that they can follow. I'm grateful for those with the ability to make a difference such as this woman has done. Just read. It will warm the cockles of your heart and make this Thanksgiving Day better!
A form of autism believe it or not. Named after Hans Asperger.more...
Aspergers Syndrome can be mild or extreme. Its a gift and a curse at the same time.
Its known mostly for being a social issue. People with it can walk and talk like normal people but the ability to handle talking with people, dealing with people, understand social "cues" and even so much as going up and asking for a new cheeseburger in a restaurant if it is made wrong without feeling like a complete idiot and fearing what the people working there are thinking of them can and will be VERY hard. In other cases, so much as walking down the street is a problem for these people.
People with aspergers syndrome often have very small interests for example computers or radio or a certain TV show or music. Because of their lack of the ability to deal with people, people with this issue often stick to themselfs. Often in their rooms. They learn about their favorite subjects to the point of having encyclopedic knowldege of the subject. This is partially where the term "little professer" came from.
Aspergers Syndrome comes with a few additional problems. People with it often have strong OCD and deal with panic attacks.
Poeple with it have problems being touched. So much as being hugged or touched by their parents, family or anybody even close to them can be a very bad expirence for them.
grooming, wearing of socks, can be a problem.
bad posture is also a common problem with people with aspergers syndrome.
A very real neurological disorder, related to autism, that has been overdiagnosed to the point where genuine cases of it are no longer taken seriously.
I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 1993, back when hardly anyone had heard of it. Nobody has any right to say that something with which I have dealt all my life is not real.
A mild form of autism, that only a selected special few of the population have. The biggest assets of this disorder are often characterized as the biggest curses.
Aspies have a hard time making friends in a world, mainly becuase their high IQ's, literal imagination, and superior adherence to company and school rules and respect for authority.
Tragically since Aspies are essentially just a more moral and intelligent version of NT's their social abnormalities make them "geeky" and "nerdy" and their non-understanding of social cues make them seem like assholes.
Living in a neurotypical world with NT's the majority of who would rather remain ignorant and alienating then seek to understand AS does not help, nor does it help to claim that you have AS to excuse your idiotic and asshole behaviour.
Asperger Syndrome is not the problem in our world. Ignorance is!
Jason has Asperger's Syndrome. He may be frank and honest, dress differently than others and obsess about horses and motorcycles, avoid eye contact and appear alone. He is secretlly a genius, who will discover a cure for cancer and create a new language by the year 2037
