A disorder beginning in childhood whose essential features are persistent impairment in reciprocal social communication and social interaction, and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities. These symptoms may limit or impair everyday functioning. (From DSM-5)
A disorder beginning in childhood. It is marked by the presence of markedly abnormal or impaired development in social interaction and communication and a markedly restricted repertoire of activity and interest. Manifestations of the disorder vary greatly depending on the developmental level and chronological age of the individual. (DSM-V)
Severe distortions in the development of many basic psychological functions that are not normal for any stage in development. These distortions are manifested in sustained social impairment, speech abnormalities, and peculiar motor movements.
Tests designed to measure intellectual functioning in children and adults.
Conditions characterized by language abilities (comprehension and expression of speech and writing) that are below the expected level for a given age, generally in the absence of an intellectual impairment. These conditions may be associated with DEAFNESS; BRAIN DISEASES; MENTAL DISORDERS; or environmental factors.
A class of nerve fibers as defined by their nerve sheath arrangement. The AXONS of the unmyelinated nerve fibers are small in diameter and usually several are surrounded by a single MYELIN SHEATH. They conduct low-velocity impulses, and represent the majority of peripheral sensory and autonomic fibers, but are also found in the BRAIN and SPINAL CORD.

The functional neuroanatomy of social behaviour: changes in cerebral blood flow when people with autistic disorder process facial expressions. (1/149)

Although high-functioning individuals with autistic disorder (i.e. autism and Asperger syndrome) are of normal intelligence, they have life-long abnormalities in social communication and emotional behaviour. However, the biological basis of social difficulties in autism is poorly understood. Facial expressions help shape behaviour, and we investigated if high-functioning people with autistic disorder show neurobiological differences from controls when processing emotional facial expressions. We used functional MRI to investigate brain activity in nine adults with autistic disorder (mean age +/- standard deviation 37 +/- 7 years; IQ 102 +/- 15) and nine controls (27 +/- 7 years; IQ 116 +/- 10) when explicitly (consciously) and implicitly (unconsciously) processing emotional facial expressions. Subjects with autistic disorder differed significantly from controls in the activity of cerebellar, mesolimbic and temporal lobe cortical regions of the brain when processing facial expressions. Notably, they did not activate a cortical 'face area' when explicitly appraising expressions, or the left amygdala region and left cerebellum when implicitly processing emotional facial expressions. High-functioning people with autistic disorder have biological differences from controls when consciously and unconsciously processing facial emotions, and these differences are most likely to be neurodevelopmental in origin. This may account for some of the abnormalities in social behaviour associated with autism.  (+info)

Dissociation between 'theory of mind' and executive functions in a patient with early left amygdala damage. (2/149)

There have been recent suggestions that the amygdala may be involved in the development or mediation of 'theory of mind'. We report a patient, B.M., with early or congenital left amygdala damage who, by adulthood, had received the psychiatric diagnoses of schizophrenia and Asperger's syndrome. We conducted a series of experimental investigations to determine B.M.'s cognitive functioning. In line with his diagnoses, B.M. was found to be severely impaired in his ability to represent mental states. Following this, we conducted a second series of studies to determine B.M.'s executive functioning. In the literature, there have been frequent claims that theory of mind is mediated by general executive functioning. B.M. showed no indication of executive function impairment, passing 16 tests assessing his ability to inhibit dominant responses, create and maintain goal-related behaviours, and temporally sequence behaviour. The findings are discussed with reference to models regarding the role of the amygdala in the development of theory of mind and the degree of dissociation between theory of mind and executive functioning. We conclude that theory of mind is not simply a function of more general executive functions, and that executive functions can develop and function on-line, independently of theory of mind. Moreover, we conclude that the amygdala may play some role in the development of the circuitry mediating theory of mind.  (+info)

A genomewide screen for autism susceptibility loci. (3/149)

We report the analysis of 335 microsatellite markers genotyped in 110 multiplex families with autism. All families include at least two "affected" siblings, at least one of whom has autism; the remaining affected sibs carry diagnoses of either Asperger syndrome or pervasive developmental disorder. Affected sib-pair analysis yielded multipoint maximum LOD scores (MLS) that reach the accepted threshold for suggestive linkage on chromosomes 5, X, and 19. Nominal evidence for linkage (point-wise P<.05) was obtained on chromosomes 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 18, and 20, and secondary loci were found on chromosomes 5 and 19. Analysis of families sharing alleles at the putative X chromosomal linked locus and one or more other putative linked loci produced an MLS of 3.56 for the DXS470-D19S174 marker combination. In an effort to increase power to detect linkage, scan statistics were used to evaluate the significance of peak LOD scores based on statistical evidence at adjacent marker loci. This analysis yielded impressive evidence for linkage to autism and autism-spectrum disorders with significant genomewide P values <.05 for markers on chromosomes 5 and 8 and with suggestive linkage evidence for a marker on chromosome 19.  (+info)

Episodic memory and autonoetic consciousness: a first-person approach. (4/149)

Episodic memory is identified with autonoetic consciousness, which gives rise to remembering in the sense of self-recollection in the mental re-enactment of previous events at which one was present. Autonoetic consciousness is distinguished from noetic consciousness, which gives rise to awareness of the past that is limited to feelings of familiarity or knowing. Noetic consciousness is identified not with episodic but with semantic memory, which involves general knowledge. A recently developed approach to episodic memory makes use of 'first-person' reports of remembering and knowing. Studies using this approach have revealed many independent variables that selectively affect remembering and others that selectively affect knowing. These studies can also be interpreted in terms of distinctiveness and fluency of processing. Remembering and knowing do not correspond with degrees of confidence in memory. Nor does remembering always control the memory response. There is evidence that remembering is selectively impaired in various populations, including not only amnesic patients and older adults but also adults with Asperger's syndrome. This first-person approach to episodic memory represents one way in which that most elusive aspect of consciousness, its subjectivity, can be investigated scientifically. The two kinds of conscious experiences can be manipulated experimentally in ways that are systematic, replicable and intelligible theoretically.  (+info)

Brain anatomy and sensorimotor gating in Asperger's syndrome. (5/149)

Asperger's syndrome (an autistic disorder) is characterized by stereotyped and obsessional behaviours, and pervasive abnormalities in socio-emotional and communicative behaviour. These symptoms lead to social exclusion and a significant healthcare burden; however, their neurobiological basis is poorly understood. There are few studies on brain anatomy of Asperger's syndrome, and no focal anatomical abnormality has been reliably reported from brain imaging studies of autism, although there is increasing evidence for differences in limbic circuits. These brain regions are important in sensorimotor gating, and impaired 'gating' may partly explain the failure of people with autistic disorders to inhibit repetitive thoughts and actions. Thus, we compared brain anatomy and sensorimotor gating in healthy people with Asperger's syndrome and controls. We included 21 adults with Asperger's syndrome and 24 controls. All had normal IQ and were aged 18-49 years. We studied brain anatomy using quantitative MRI, and sensorimotor gating using prepulse inhibition of startle in a subset of 12 individuals with Asperger's syndrome and 14 controls. We found significant age-related differences in volume of cerebral hemispheres and caudate nuclei (controls, but not people with Asperger's syndrome, had age-related reductions in volume). Also, people with Asperger's syndrome had significantly less grey matter in fronto-striatal and cerebellar regions than controls, and widespread differences in white matter. Moreover, sensorimotor gating was significantly impaired in Asperger's syndrome. People with Asperger's syndrome most likely have generalized alterations in brain development, but this is associated with significant differences from controls in the anatomy and function of specific brain regions implicated in behaviours characterizing the disorder. We hypothesize that Asperger's syndrome is associated with abnormalities in fronto-striatal pathways resulting in defective sensorimotor gating, and consequently characteristic difficulties inhibiting repetitive thoughts, speech and actions.  (+info)

Autism, Asperger syndrome and brain mechanisms for the attribution of mental states to animated shapes. (6/149)

Ten able adults with autism or Asperger syndrome and 10 normal volunteers were PET scanned while watching animated sequences. The animations depicted two triangles moving about on a screen in three different conditions: moving randomly, moving in a goal-directed fashion (chasing, fighting), and moving interactively with implied intentions (coaxing, tricking). The last condition frequently elicited descriptions in terms of mental states that viewers attributed to the triangles (mentalizing). The autism group gave fewer and less accurate descriptions of these latter animations, but equally accurate descriptions of the other animations compared with controls. While viewing animations that elicited mentalizing, in contrast to randomly moving shapes, the normal group showed increased activation in a previously identified mentalizing network (medial prefrontal cortex, superior temporal sulcus at the temporo-parietal junction and temporal poles). The autism group showed less activation than the normal group in all these regions. However, one additional region, extrastriate cortex, which was highly active when watching animations that elicited mentalizing, showed the same amount of increased activation in both groups. In the autism group this extrastriate region showed reduced functional connectivity with the superior temporal sulcus at the temporo-parietal junction, an area associated with the processing of biological motion as well as with mentalizing. This finding suggests a physiological cause for the mentalizing dysfunction in autism: a bottleneck in the interaction between higher order and lower order perceptual processes.  (+info)

Oxytocin infusion reduces repetitive behaviors in adults with autistic and Asperger's disorders. (7/149)

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by dysfunction in three core behavioral domains: repetitive behaviors, social deficits, and language abnormalities. There is evidence that abnormalities exist in peptide systems, particularly the oxytocin system, in autism spectrum patients. Furthermore, oxytocin and the closely related peptide vasopressin are known to play a role in social and repetitive behaviors. This study examined the impact of oxytocin on repetitive behaviors in 15 adults with autism or Asperger's disorder via randomized double-blind oxytocin and placebo challenges. The primary outcome measure was an instrument rating six repetitive behaviors: need to know, repeating, ordering, need to tell/ask, self-injury, and touching. Patients with autism spectrum disorders showed a significant reduction in repetitive behaviors following oxytocin infusion in comparison to placebo infusion. Repetitive behavior in autism spectrum disorders may be related to abnormalities in the oxytocin system, and may be partially ameliorated by synthetic oxytocin infusion.  (+info)

Impaired mirror-image imitation in Asperger and high-functioning autistic subjects. (8/149)

Imitation is crucial for proper development of social and communicative skills. Here, we argue that, based on an error analysis of a behavioral imitation task, adult Asperger and high-functioning autistic subjects suffer from an intriguing deficit of imitation: they lack the natural preference for imitation in a mirror-image fashion. The imitation task consisted of a simple movement sequence of putting a pen with the left or right hand into a green or a blue cup using one of two possible grips. The subjects were asked to imitate the experimenter's hand movements either using the crossed hand (e.g., the subject's right hand corresponding to the experimenter's right hand) for imitation or to imitate as if looking in a mirror (e.g., the subject's left hand corresponding to the experimenter's right hand). When people normally view other persons face-to-face, they prefer to imitate as in a mirror, and observation of mirror-image-like movements speeds up performance in nonimitative tasks. However, our autistic subjects, defective in social cognition, did not profit from mirror-image movements of others. These results provide a new insight into the difficulties that autistic subjects face in viewing and understanding actions of others.  (+info)

Asperger syndrome may be observed and diagnosed in early childhood. No one knows exactly what causes it, but it is thought to have a genetic cause. The part of the brain which controls a persons social behavior (understanding and communicating with other people) may grow or function differently in a person with Asperger syndrome. Another part of the brain that may be different is the part that controls some body movement such as balance. A person with this condition may walk or act in a clumsy way and have trouble doing body actions such as sports. They may also do physical actions repetitively, such as rocking, flapping their hands, or tapping their feet. The condition seems to run in families. Parents who have Asperger syndrome often have children who have it or another kind of autism.. Asperger syndrome cannot be found by testing blood or looking at someones body.

Asperger syndrome has been long considered an obstacle in a childs harmonious social development, but nowadays this disorder on the autistic spectrum has become a trait in great demand, especially when it comes to the labor market. Even though it is still perceived by some as autism, what determined pediatrician Hans Asperger to nickname children suffering from Asperger syndrome little professors was the preoccupation they had for a certain subject and the reason why most of those who know how to channel their gift end up being prodigies.. According to Doctor Tony Attwood, a world authority on this disorder described the syndrome as a different way of thinking that has transformed Asperger into a trait in great demand, especially in the field of technology, where an eye for details is highly valued. Director Steven Spielberg has been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and experts speculate that Bill Gates has traits that could be associated with this disorder.. Most of the major advances in ...

Sarah Ridout lives in Exeter. At the age of 23, she was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, a condition on the autistm spectrum.. I went to my GP after I watched a documentary on autism and recognised some of the characteristics in myself, particularly the difficulty with forming friendships. My GP diagnosed me with Asperger syndrome. Looking back, I can now relate some of my educational experiences to having autism. Like many people with the condition, I was bullied a great deal at school and college, often in PE and sports. I was always picked last. I found it really difficult to play games with other children at break times, and they would refuse to let me join in.. I find it funny now, because Im proud of my achievements. Despite having Asperger syndrome, I can do whatever I choose in life, its just that I might do some things differently, or need time to learn.

Partly claimed to explain social difficulties observed in people with Asperger syndrome, face identification and visual search strategies become important. Previous research findings are, however, disparate. In order to explore face identification abilities and visual search strategies, with special focus on the importance of the eye area, 24 adults with Asperger syndrome and matched controls viewed puzzle pieced photos of faces, in order to identify them as one of three intact photos of persons. Every second puzzle pieced photo had the eyes distorted. Fixation patterns were measured by an eye tracker. Adults with Asperger syndrome had greater difficulties in identifying faces than controls. However, the entire face identification superiority in controls was found in the condition when the eyes were distorted supporting that adults with Aspergers syndrome do use the eye region to a great extent in face identification. The visual search strategies in controls were more effective and relied on the ...

Asperger Syndrome - A talk given by Carolyn J Baird BA(Hons) at the Newcastle-Hunter ADHD Support Group Meeting on February 16th, 2000. I would like to mention at the outset that much of what I talk about tonight may sound very familiar to many of you. Thats because many children with Pervasive Developmental Disorder - otherwise known as PDD - of which Asperger Syndrome and Autistic Disorder are two of those, do meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD. The 4th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Disorders - known as the DSM-IV - prohibits diagnosing ADHD when there is PDD since all the ADHD symptoms can be attributed to PDD. However I have heard of many cases where dual diagnoses of a PDD disorder and ADHD have been given or PDD symptoms have been entirely overlooked and the individuals incorrectly diagnosed as having ADHD only.. But before I elaborate on this, perhaps I should introduce myself to you and tell you a little of my background.. My name is Carolyn Baird, ...
Hertfordshire has a transition team that sits within the councils health and community services (formerly adult care services) department and starts to work with young people with autism from the age of 16 years. One of the practice issues currently for Hertfordshire is the criteria we have in place for service users diagnosed as having an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). At present if someone is diagnosed with an ASD and a learning disability and they meet Fair Access to Care Services (FACS) criteria (substantial or critical) then they are eligible for a service from the transition team from 16. However if they have autism without a learning disability or Asperger syndrome then this does not happen.. If an individual with Asperger syndrome meets eligibility criteria then adult mental health services, within Hertfordshire Partnership Trust, becomes responsible for their social care from the age of 18, along with any psychiatric or psychology services. However they do not currently work with ...

Aspergers Disorder (commonly misspelled as asbergers) is a milder variant of Autistic Disorder. Both Aspergers Disorder and Autistic Disorder are in fact subgroups of a larger diagnostic category. This larger category is called either Autistic Spectrum Disorders or Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD).. Prognosis of an autistic child is rather poor: typically only one in twenty will display any improvement by adulthood. There is not a specific medical treatment for autism, however, there are quite a few alternative treatments for autism that have shown promise in behavior outcomes.. Vitamin B6 has shown promise in correcting abnormal metabolite excretion from a tryptophan load test. Autism Asperger syndrome given B6 have shown significant improvement overall, with true B6 deficiency present. This alternative treatment for autism may have some minor side effects of irritability, sound sensitivity and bed wetting, however, these can be resolved by giving magnesium in conjunction with B6. ...

Many cases of Aspergers Syndrome go undetected. It was not even recognized as a disorder until 1994.. There are many symptoms of Aspergers Syndrome. A person may have difficulty using nonverbal gestures like eye contact, facial expression, and body posture. There may be difficulty in developing relationships with peers. A person may not seek to enjoy things with other people. He/she may be socially or emotionally unresponsive.. People with ...
Autism spectrum disorders, including Asperger syndrome, have generally been associated with uneven intellectual profiles and impairment, but according to a new study of Asperger individuals published in the online journal PLoS ONE, this may not be the case -- as long as intelligence is evaluated by the right test.
Asperger syndrome falls into the category of Autism Spectrum Disorders. If you research this topic you will most likely find more information than simply researching asperger syndrom. Some doctors/scientists/health professionals etc believe there to be a genetic link with ASD while others claim environmental factors as a possible cause. In my research, (I work with many children diagnosed with ASD in my profession) I lean more heavily to the genetic theories but dont deny that some environmental factors may add to the condition ...
Asperger Syndrome is a development disorder that was first described by Viennese paediatrician, Hans Asperger, in the 1940s.

If you start noticing few symptoms from the above mentioned list, then its time you should speak to a doctor. You will have to take special appointment with the doctor, so he can also diagnose you for this disease. Your doctor will right away take a few tests which include asperger and its treatment. The sooner a kid is diagnosed, the easier it gets to treat him.. Treatment:. Teachers, doctors and counselors can go a long way in dealing with this problem. The child might have to regular consume a set of tablets for keeping the disease under check. The best bet is to always keep the child involved. He should be made to interact and express himself easily. This can go a long way for treating his disorder.. The family should consider hiring a therapist for treating the disorder. There are various features which a therapist or counselor should be having. One of them is ability to listen. A child suffering from asperger syndrome wants people to interact with him. This would make him comfortable in ...

What distinguishes Aspergers Disorder from classic autism are its less severe symptoms and the absence of language delays. Children with Aspergers Disorder may be only mildly affected, and they frequently have good language and cognitive skills. To the untrained observer, a child with Aspergers Disorder may just seem like a neurotypical child behaving differently.. Children with autism are frequently viewed as aloof and uninterested in others. This is not the case with Aspergers Disorder. Individuals with Aspergers Disorder usually want to fit in and have interaction with others, but often they dont know how to do it. They may be socially awkward, not understand conventional social rules or show a lack of empathy. They may have limited eye contact, seem unengaged in a conversation and not understand the use of gestures or sarcasm.. Their interests in a particular subject may border on the obsessive. Children with Aspergers Disorder often like to collect categories of things, such as rocks ...
In a prevalence study of autism, Wing & Gould (1979) identified a large number of children who failed to meet the diagnostic criteria for classic autism, but had a triad of impairments involving social interaction, communication and imagination, with additional repetitive stereotyped activities. This triad of symptoms, termed the autistic spectrum, was recognised at all levels of intelligence and is included in DSM-IV as pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified, and in ICD-10 as atypical autism, other pervasive developmental disorders or pervasive developmental disorders, unspecified. The estimated prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (autistic spectrum disorders) may be as high as 91 per 10 000.. At present it is not clear whether Asperger syndrome is distinct from the autistic spectrum disorders. Diagnostic uncertainty arises in patients of near normal cognitive ability (total IQ ,70) with autistic spectrum disorders, who are described as having high-functioning ...

Your child may have just been diagnosed or he is showing symptoms of an autism spectrum disorders and you now wonder, What is Aspergers Syndrome? With a recent - or anticipated - diagnosis you are wondering where to turn. Perhaps you are trying to figure out what this will mean for your child and your familys future. Here you can find an overview on what Aspergers Syndrome is and what to expect in the future.. First of all, Aspergers is an autism spectrum disorder. Autism is a developmental disorder than affects the way a child...or adult...interacts with, perceives and interprets the world. A spectrum means that there are many different forms of autism, ranging from very severe to very mild. Those on the more high functioning side usually get a diagnosis of Aspergers Syndrome.. Many children as well as adults may be misdiagnosed...this is unfortunately all too common. Many are initially diagnosed with ADHD or OCD or some other condition before a proper diagnosis is reached. This is ...

People identifying with Asperger syndrome may refer to themselves in casual conversation as aspies (a term first used in print by Liane Holliday Willey in 1999).[139] The word neurotypical (abbreviated NT) describes a person whose neurological development and state are typical and is often used to refer to non-autistic (or allistic) people. The Internet has allowed individuals with AS to communicate with each other in a way that was not previously possible because of their rarity and geographic dispersal, forming a subculture composed of people with Aspergers. Some autistic people have advocated a shift in perception of autism spectrum disorders as complex syndromes rather than diseases that must be cured. Proponents of this view reject the notion that there is an ideal brain configuration and that any deviation from the norm is pathological; they promote tolerance for what they call neurodiversity.[140] These views are the basis for the autistic rights and autistic pride movements.[141] ...

Asperger syndrome (AS) is a developmental disorder. It is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), one of a distinct group of neurological conditions characterized by a greater or lesser degree of impairment in language and communication skills, as well as repetitive or restrictive patterns of thought and behavior. Other ASDs include: classic autism, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (usually referred to as PDD-NOS). Unlike children with autism, children with AS retain their early language skills.. The most distinguishing symptom of AS is a childs obsessive interest in a single object or topic to the exclusion of any other. Children with AS want to know everything about their topic of interest and their conversations with others will be about little else. Their expertise, high level of vocabulary, and formal speech patterns make them seem like little professors. Other characteristics of AS include repetitive routines or ...
Asperger syndrome is no longer in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - the DSM kids are calling it an autism spectrum disorder these days - but its still all over our television screens. It seems like no TV show is complete anymore without a charming and/or abrasive weirdo who has issues with social cues, eye contact, and the occasional hallucination involving deer antlers. As both a person with Aspergers and an obsessive television watcher, these characters are pretty serious business for me, and its important to me that writers and actors portray them as accurately and honestly as possible. I also want to make sure theyre entertaining. So, using my mad meticulous and intensely focused spectral skills, Ive assessed 15 of the small screens Aspergian, autistic, and
Currently, somewhere in a rural American school sits an elementary-aged student who has been labeled by a teacher and his/her peers as the Little Professor according to the Asperger s Syndrome Coalition of the United States. The onset of Asperger s Syndrome is recognized and occurs later than what is typical of autism. A significant number of children are diagnosed after age three, with most diagnosed between the age of five and nine. Children with Asperger s Syndrome generally do not have cognitive or language delay. Social deficits begin at the start of school and they fall just below the typical range. For students with Asperger s Syndrome the result of these deficits is that they never fit in with their classmates. Thus Asperger s Syndrome students slip through the cracks because they tend to be bright and quirky and these traits tend to isolate them from their classmates. Asperger s Syndrome is a life-long disorder and if it is identified at an early age and appropriate interventions are ...
A parents experience of Autistic Spectrum Disorder and the SEN and school system, plus advice for other parents of children with Asperger syndrome.
Asperger syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder characterized by difficulties in social interaction and communication, has been thrown into the media spotlight since fiery Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲), a self-proclaimed sufferer of the syndrome, took office and vowed to usher in drastic changes. Heated discussion has surrounded the developmental disorder, particularly after a diplomatic faux pas in late January, in which Ko, after receiving a pocket watch from British Minister of State for Transport Susan Kramer at a public event in Taipei, told reporters that he might give the watch to someone else or
d) Repetitive behaviour. 2. Asperger syndrome. Children with Asperger syndrome has no problem with speech development, but have very poor social and communication skills. they may talk a lot, but fail to focus and keep up with the subject. they also have a very narrow interest as they may talk about only one single subject for months or years. Some children with Asperger syndrome may also engage in repetitive behaviour such as flagging hand.. 3. Pervasive Development disorder. Children who have developed some or mild forms of autism are considered to have pervasive development disorder. Although some symptoms or important signs of autism are missing, they are likely to diagnoses with autism or Asperger syndrome later in their life.. 4. Rett Syndrome. Rett syndrome effects mostly girl, is defined as a condition of which children lose social and communication skills as well as purposely use of their hand. It may also accompany with symptoms of hand repetitive and seizures.. 5. Childhood ...
A technology associated with fantasy worlds is helping young adults with autism in the hard reality of life. Researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas Center for BrainHealth are working with patients diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome using virtual reality training. People with the disorder have normal intelligence, but they suffer from a variety of social cognitive defects, including an inability to read nonverbal clues and adapt well to change.. These young adults -- considered to have a form of autism -- face many obstacles in life. Interviewing for a job or asking somebody for a date can be monumentally difficult.. To help them succeed, researchers from the center have created a virtual world for them to practice their social skills. Each person creates an avatar/character in his or her likeness, who then navigates through a virtual world, interacting with real people represented by their own avatars. The virtual world includes settings commonly encountered in everyday life such as ...
People identifying with Asperger syndrome may refer to themselves in casual conversation as aspies (a term first used in print by Liane Holliday Willey in 1999).[138] Some autistic people have advocated a shift in perception of autism spectrum disorders as complex syndromes rather than diseases that must be cured. Proponents of this view reject the notion that there is an ideal brain configuration and that any deviation from the norm is pathological; they promote tolerance for what they call neurodiversity.[139] These views are the basis for the autistic rights and autistic pride movements.[140] There is a contrast between the attitude of adults with self-identified AS, who typically do not want to be cured and are proud of their identity; and parents of children with AS, who typically seek assistance and a cure for their children.[141] Some researchers have argued that AS can be viewed as a different cognitive style, not a disorder,[19] and that it should be removed from the standard ...
Asperger syndrome is not a curable condition. However, being one of the milder forms in the Autism Spectrum Disorders, with little language development difficulties and normal or high IQ, this disorder allows a child to live a normal or near normal life.

Psychological interventions play an important role in the rehabilitation of people with autism. Some of the factors described above, including the individuals feelings of marginalisation, victimisation and resentment, may become evident only after a long period of work, when a therapeutic relationship has been built up. Techniques such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) may be useful in addressing the underlying problems that have been identified. It may also be beneficial in reducing preoccupation with violent and sexual themes (Barry-Walsh 2004) and in the management of anxiety and depression (Attwood 2007), both of which have been associated with an increased risk of aggression (Blair 2005). Some people with Asperger syndrome find talking therapy difficult and may prefer art or music therapy. In some circumstances, assessment of the individuals neuropsychological strengths and vulnerabilities may be more pertinent to management.. There is no evidence that a psychoanalytic approach is ...
Co-existence of Asperger syndrome (AS) and non-verbal learning disability (NLD) has been proposed based on the observation that people with AS tend to have significantly higher verbal than performance IQ (VIQ>PIQ by ≥15 points), one of the core features of NLD. In the present study we examined neuropsychological and social adaptive profiles with non-verbal learning problems associated with NLD in a group of individuals with AS followed from childhood into early adult life. The group was divided into three subgroups: (i) persistent NLD (P-NLD), i.e. NLD (VIQ>PIQ) both in childhood and early adulthood occasions, (ii) childhood NLD (CO-NLD), i.e. NLD (VIQ>PIQ) only at original diagnosis, or (iii) No NLD (VIQ>PIQ) ever (NO-NLD). All three subgroups were followed prospectively from childhood into adolescence and young adult life. One in four to one in five of the whole group of males with AS had P-NLD. The P-NLD subgroup had poorer neuropsychological outcome in early adult life than did those ...

PY - 2005/3. Y1 - 2005/3. N2 - The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-Second Edition was administered to 20 adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) who fell in the average to above average range of intelligence and 24 age-, intelligence-, and gender-matched college students. Large group differences, with the ASD group scoring higher, were found on the L validity scale, Clinical Scales 2 (D) and 0 (Si), Content scale Social Discomfort (SOD), Supplementary scale Repression (R), and Personality Psychopathology Five (PSY-5) scale INTR (Introversion). The proportion of ASD adults scoring in the clinical range on these scales was between 25% and 35%. High scores on these scales are consistent with the clinical picture of Asperger syndrome and high-functioning autism in adulthood. Future directions ...
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. With the May 2013 publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, all autism disorders were merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD. Previously, they were recognized as distinct subtypes, including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome. ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art. Each individual with autism is unique. Many of those on the autism spectrum have exceptional abilities in visual skills, music and academic skills. ...
The study has important implications for the clinical management of biological girls with gender incongruence that persists into adulthood.. The researchers measured autistic traits using the Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) and compared AQ scores from transmen; transwomen (male-to-female); typical males; typical females; and individuals with Asperger Syndrome (AS, a form of autism). They found transmen had a higher average AQ than typical females, typical males and transwomen, but lower than individuals with AS. The findings are published today in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.. Professor Baron-Cohen, Director of the Autism Research Centre, interpreted the results:. ...
Also, when a friend of mine was on a packed bus, a man got on and rapidly started to look unwell, sneezing into his hands. He noticed there was a dog on the bus. It turns out he was allergic to dogs, and now stuck on a packed bus. He was quite vocal about it, using words like disgusting and unhygienic. Poor bloke, he was clearly having trouble and his comments got a few sympathetic looks.. But as this situation got more attention, people noticed that the dog in question was owned by a very quiet blind lady, who was now looking uncomfortable. An awkward situation got steadily worse as his aggressive words got louder, to the point where the woman got very upset and started crying.. What a complete wanker. Why was he being so horrible for the sake of a few sneezes? Watching this, my friend realised that there was something more to the mans behaviour, possibly Asperger syndrome. He wasnt being confrontational at all to the blind woman, just overly verbal.. Lack of personal space on the commute ...

I had to explain to my anesthesiologists a few things that could put me at higher risk of waking up during surgery. #1. I have Asperger Syndrome, I use different parts of my brain for things they dont perform for other people. #2. In very left brained, and logic focused, I gravitate towards wakefulness and awareness. #3. Part of being this far left brained, is that I have a few fears.. And reactions. For instance, I fear, and I hate the feeling of being dizzy or high.. My knee jerk reaction to sedatives is to fight the sleep. My knee jerk reaction to opioids is to fight the high and to make myself breathe. #4. The reason I hate the opioids and the sedatives.. Is because they induce fear, not sedation automatically.. My response to being high, or dizzy.. Is fear. #5. I have experienced almost blacking out after selling plasma.. The dizziness and the lightheadedness.. That made me fearful.. To actually black out is a point beyond that. #6. I have taken opioids before. What can you do for me ?
Four and a half years into our relationship, his eighteen year old son, who has Asperger Syndrome, moved to NYC to be near his dad (from Memphis). Prior to that time, S had called his son on the phone every day for thirty minutes and visited one weekend a month, plus school vacations. Luckily, W didnt move into our apartment... but it felt like he might as well have (he had a series of sublet studio and one bedroom apartments nearby), because he could drop by, unannounced, any time day or night. Into our one bedroom, lacking a bedroom door, apartment... with his booming voice, cackling laugh (Im not being mean, really, he has full awareness of his habit and enjoys cackling maniacally), his inability to understand the finer points of personal space, his giant belly, and his insatiable need to talk, and talk, and talk... droning on for hours. Frequently after I was in bed for the night. Once, in our upstate house (which likewise lacks proper walls and privacy), I counted -- he talked to (or, ...

Sometimes new drivers, including teens with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (HFASD), have a hard time visually detecting critical items and anticipating a needed response to objects and other traffic indicators of a potentially hazardous situation. These critical items include traffic signs such as speed limit, stop and yield signs, as well as crosswalk and pavement markings that alert drivers to possible pedestrian traffic. In addition, novice drivers may also be unaware of other drivers break lights and turn signals that would require a response. Research has shown that the detection of these items and other skills required for safe driving, can be improved through driving-related computerized training programs.. This research study is being done to test the benefits of a computerized training program for drivers education students to see if it improves perception of these important traffic indicators for novice drivers, particularly those with high functioning autism spectrum ...

Schizophrenics are bad at compartmentalizing things, the self from others, fantasy from reality, this from that, they see patterns where there are none, or highly dubious patterns, often missing out on mundane, obvious ones thatre right in front of their noses, where as Aspergers are great at compartmentalizing, and being scientific, but lack creativity (althou they can possess a kind of linear creativity, they can create or uncover x, the new or novel, but only painstakingly beginning with A, then B, then C and so on down the line, where as schizophrenics might get flashes of creativity and insight, seemingly from out of the aether, they might even attribute their epiphanies to the Gods, or some mysterious force or source theyre connected to), imagination, humor, poetry and so on ...
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a genetically linked, neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impairments within the social-communication domain and the presence of stereotyped and repetitive interests or behaviors. While previously referring to a group of pervasive developmental disorders (autism, Aspergers disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified), ASD now serves as an umbrella term where severity levels are assigned. ASD is characteristically heterogeneous; that is, manifestation of impairments can vary greatly. For example, nonverbal IQ can range from meeting criteria for severe intellectual disability to within or above the normal range. While language impairment is not a diagnostic criterion for autism, deficits in language are often found-although heterogeneity is again pervasive. While some children with ASD acquire language comparable to typically developing (TD) peers, approximately 25 percent remain minimally verbal, never acquiring functional ...
ISBN 1874291276, £12. This is an informative pack, giving practical examples of how people can better support young people with autistic spectrum disorder, writes Mark Houston. This guidance would be useful to anyone who works with autistic children.. The pack would be particularly useful to parents of autistic children struggling to understand their childrens behaviour and give them the correct support.. It gives the reader a clear insight into the ways in which autistic children view the world differently, but also strongly emphasises the fact that all autistic children are different so that services must always be adapted to the individuals needs.. Mark Houston is a care leaver who was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome as a teenager.. ...
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disability significantly affecting verbal and nonverbal communication and social interaction, generally evident before age three that adversely affects a childs educational performance. Other characteristics often associated with autism are engagement in repetitive activities and stereotyped movements, resistance to environmental change or change in daily routines, and unusual responses to sensory experiences. This impairment may include: Autistic Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (Atypical Autism), Aspergers Disorder, Retts Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder or all Pervasive Developmental Disorders. Autism does not apply if a childs educational performance is adversely affected primarily because the child has an emotional disability ...

Not written by me) Finland is offering free trips to people in need of happiness lessons By Katherine Martinko For three days this summer, a local host could show you why their country consistently ranks among the happiest in the world. For the past two years, Finland has been named the happiest country in the world. Its citizens are relaxed and cheerful, enjoying life in a progressive, technologically advanced society, without becoming overly stressed. The Finns themselves attribute this to their connection with nature and their instinct to go outside whenever anxiety rears its ugly head: When others go to therapy, Finns put on a pair of rubber boots and head to the woods. Sounds wonderful, doesnt it? Well, I have some exciting news. You, too, could learn how to live like this, taught firsthand by Finnish happiness guides. A curious project called Rent a Finn, organized by Visit Finland, will send a select number of guests to live in Finnish households for three days this summer, during ...
I told Dr. Dan about my failure, and started walking home in the dark feeling quite upset and frustrated about this fruitless venture. I started pondering why the Pharmacy staff were seemingly ignorant, but it became clearer to me. Pharmacies, like with nearly all other private healthcare facilities, function as businesses. They will sell the medications that are profitable and are in higher demand. Because East Timors population is very young with the mean life expectancy at ~65 years, the prevalence of Neurodegenerative Conditions such as Parkinsons and Alzheimers Disease etc would be much lower than in Australia. Low demand for a low-prevalence condition would mean that the Pharmacies are much less likely to stock it. Out of principle, this is fair from a financial point of view (Capitalism, Supply and Demand), but I felt really sorry for Horacio and all other East Timorese patients with low-prevalence conditions who wouldnt be catered for when the time called for it. The Public ...
In this issue, Dr. Rosner and Mr. Haber (see pages 441 and 442) have written about examining living wills. Both gentlemen are affiliated with Queens Hospital Center in Long Island; one is a physician and Professor of Medicine, while the other is a lawyer and Professor of Philosophy. The two approaches to living wills are remarkably different and represent a personal, searching response (Dr. Rosner) vs a pragmatic, legalistic analysis (Mr. Haber).. Dr. Rosner introduces us to living wills by informing us that medical ethics is popular in America today and our ethical vocabulary is confusing, nonspecific, and not of much help to practicing physicians who are on the firing line, trying to determine the best course of action for an individual patient. Dr. Rosner goes on to discuss the infinite value of human life and that only the Divine Creator gives life and takes it away. Mr. Haber rightfully rebuts this personal viewpoint by stating that a belief in a Divine Being has no place in a secular ...
In reference to early intervention funding for example on my estimates (that is all I can give you) is that 13% of all children with a disability aged 0-14 have autism which is around 22,180 if you divide that in half and assume that these may be in the age of 0-6 needing early intervention, that is roughly 11,050 that have autism and may need early intervention funding. So in accordance with the statistics from the ABS this is in line with 1 in 8 statistic, so roughly 10,000 of the 80,000 figure for early intervention could be for Autism related disorders. The complex issue remains is that these figures are known to not truly reflect the rate and statistics of those with autism. Recently, the Minister for Health in Australia stated: There is no national data on the diagnostic profiles of people with autistic disorder and/or Aspergers syndrome and/or pervasive developmental disorders. (Campbell 2003, page 16680) and the Government does not plan to establish central registers for autism, ...
Autism spectrum disorders are a group of developmental disabilities characterized by atypical development in behavior, communication skills, and socialization. These disorders include autistic disorder (autism), Asperger disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified. Children who have the latter two disorders have fewer and milder symptoms compared with autism.. In the Canadian study, Sonia Lupien, senior researcher and a professor at the University of Montreal Department of Psychiatry and Director of the Centre for Studies on Human Stress at Louis-H. Lafontaine Hospital, explained that our findings showed that the dogs had a clear impact on the childrens stress hormone levels. I have not seen such a dramatic effect before.. Lupien noted that this study was the first to measure the physiological impact of service dogs on children with autism. Our results lend support to the potential behavioural benefits of service dogs for autistic children. In the United States, ...

Weiss already has had some success sleuthing genes in which variations are associated with elevated autism risk. When she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard - before coming to UCSF three years ago - Weiss and an international team of colleagues undertook a two-pronged approach to survey the entire DNA of individuals within affected families. She worked with samples from more than 1,000 affected families, maintained by the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE) and the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).. The families included at least one member with autism and at least one additional member with autism or an autism spectrum disorder, such as Aspergers syndrome. The researchers searched for repeated or deleted bits of DNA - alterations in the genome that can result in too much or too little production of key proteins. The scientists used this approach to strongly implicate a rare, but previously unknown and strongly acting DNA variant in ...

My grandson who is 14 years old was diagnosed with severe autism at 2 years old. He is non verbal and attends a very good school for autism for the past 9 years. When he was first diagnosed, I thought that intellectual disability came with the autism territory as well as sensory issues,communication, no immitation etc. Since I have been looking at the Autism Speaks Network, it seems that those with high functioning autism or Aspergers are the main focus. My grandsons type of autism is only about 7% of the autism spectrum. Some people who say that they have autism respond on the autism speaks forum very well and often argue about vaccinations. My grandson cant do that. Why is this all under one umbrella? I do not like the term low functioning I think it sounds disrespectful and discriminatory. He has classic autism because we don;t really know what his IQ is or what he thinks about or what he is capable of. All we know is that when something interests him, he is very perceptive. ...

After six days of confinement in a bunker in Alabama, law enforcement officers were able to rescue a 5-year-old boy who had been taken hostage by a deranged man.. Thank goodness the boy is all right, or at least that is what authorities were saying immediately after the rescue.. Jimmy Lee Dykes, the man who held the boy hostage, was dead. Details were still forthcoming on Monday afternoon, but one report said law enforcement used a flash grenade to storm the bunker after Dykes was seen holding a gun and his mental status was deemed to be deteriorating.. Dykes, a retired trucker and Vietnam veteran, killed a bus driver last Tuesday as he boarded a school bus in an effort to take hostages. He grabbed a young boy who has been identified only as Ethan. The child reportedly has reportedly has Aspergers syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.. Since then, they had been in the bunker that Dykes had built.. The situation could have ended in tragedy, and while details still are sketchy, ...

Personally Ive begun to wonder if the problems I have with short term memory function arent a by product of the memory loss associated with trauma, as it implies that healing traumatic wounds would restore some memory function.. Im also acutely, jealously aware that my friend, who on the surface struggles with daily life more than I do, also has far greater insight than me when it comes to long term problem solving. He plays both poker and chess very well. He can perceive, in ways that elude me, many creative possibilities or strategies to reach a goal that are seemingly hidden to others.. In the past I had some time to reflect on the deficits associated with Aspergers syndrome. Then as now, I noted that surfeits of various kinds accompanied the deficits. I wonder if those ...

The aim of this study was to investigate a previously overlooked, universally introduced environmental factor, fetal and retroviral contaminants in childhood vaccines, absent prior to change points (CPs) in autistic disorder (AD) prevalence with subsequent dose-effect evidence and known pathologic mechanisms of action.  Worldwide population based cohort study was used for the design of this study. The United States, Western Australia, United Kingdom and Denmark settings were used. All live born infants who later developed autistic disorder delivered after 1 January 1970, whose redacted vaccination and autistic disorder diagnosis information is publicly available in databases maintained by the US Federal Government, Western Australia, UK, and Denmark. The live births, grouped by father’s age, were from the US and Australia. The children vaccinated with MMRII, Varicella and Hepatitis A vaccines varied from 19 to 35 months of age at the time of vaccination. Autistic disorder birth year change

Before my diagnosis, I worried about having rapid cycling bipolar disorder. Daily, I experienced spells of heightened excitability and mental energy followed by profound boredom and lethargy.

I turned 55 this month. I should be looking forward to a break. A time to travel, have a little fun and relax. Right?. Well, guess what: I decided to adopt my grandchildren. They are now five and six. I just could not live with the alternative, which was foster care. Their parents love them to pieces, but they arent capable of meeting their childrens many needs.. The story starts with my child. He was a gorgeous blond-haired boy born in 1973. From kindergarten on I was told there was something wrong with him. He had special needs due to learning disabilities caused by, well, caused by every diagnosis imaginable. Hed be diagnosed with one thing and when that did not ring true another diagnosis would be the answer. And of course, along with the many diagnoses came prescription drugs, special education classes, therapy appointments, hospital admissions and residential treatment placements. As I write this it makes me sick to my stomach. How on earth could any child have a stable, nurturing ...
The professors casual speculation brings to mind similarly unfounded remarks about the Virginia Tech shooter, who did not have autism, but an entirely different disorder.. It is also odd that Dr. Coid seems to equate autism and schizophrenia, which are different.. People with autism are more likely than neurotypical people to be crime victims, not crime perpetrators. It is unfortunate, then, that the news media speculate about autism as a cause of crime. The entertainment media do something similar by using autism as a plot gimmick. An episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent, for instance, featured a killer with Asperger.. ...

Abstract Abstract:. The article juxtaposes two memoirs about Aspergers by John Elder Robison-Look Me in the Eye and Switched On-with an experimental novel by Lydia Netzer, Shine, Shine, Shine. To varying degrees, these texts challenge the disorder model of autism, attesting to the harm that autistic children suffer when people impose normative social expectations on them. The article compares Robisons memoirs, which ultimately rely on the conversion trope central to popular autism narratives, with Netzers use of the novel to invoke and then reject the trope of conversion. In place of the conversion trope, the article invokes a theory of neurodiversity that acknowledges the ways that autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) bolster success in a world dominated by technology, and represent an evolutionary development suited to the practical and epistemological demands of the twenty-first century.. ...
