Hello! And welcome to Aspie Girls! I am pleased that you are here today!
This is a place where you can share experiences and deviations about your aspie life!
For those visiting for the first time, and have never heard of Asperger's(AS). I shall give you some information of why we are all here.
Asperger's Disorder(AS) is a high function form of Autism. Individuals with this disorder are characterized by social isolation, and eccentric behavior in childhood. There are impairments in two-sided social interaction. Such as, no eye contact with individuals, no facial expressions, posture, or gestures. However, people with Asperger's obtain language skills, without much delay. Clumsiness may be prominent both in their articulation and gross motor behavior. They usually have a circumscribed area of interest which usually leaves no space for more age appropriate, common interests.
People with Asperger's can become obsessed on a certain topic, so much, that they can't concentrate on anything else. They want to know more about the topic, and don't talk at all about anything else.
Children with Asperger's will talk about the obsessed subject continuously, with no ending point.
People with Asperger's maybe have a hard time forming relationships with children, or adults their own age.
They are unable to respond emotionally to certain situations.
They are not lenient with routines.
Some children may have delays in motor movements. Such as, learning to ride a bicycle, tying shoe laces.
These are just a few examples with someone who has Asperger's. Some people may have mores symptoms, some people may have less symptoms. Everyone person is different.
There is not one single treatment that can treat Asperger's. Usually the earlier you catch the symptoms, the easier it is to treat it.
Cognitive, speech therapy.
Social skills therapy.
Please call your health care provider if your child, or someone close to you, is doing self-harm.
