Nonverbal Communication: Transmission of emotions, ideas, and attitudes between individuals in ways other than the spoken language.Asperger Syndrome: 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)Autistic Disorder: 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)Echolalia: Involuntary ("parrot-like"), meaningless repetition of a recently heard word, phrase, or song. This condition may be associated with transcortical APHASIA; SCHIZOPHRENIA; or other disorders. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p485)Child Development Disorders, Pervasive: 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.Neurology: A medical specialty concerned with the study of the structures, functions, and diseases of the nervous system.Caudate Nucleus: Elongated gray mass of the neostriatum located adjacent to the lateral ventricle of the brain.Stereotyped Behavior: Relatively invariant mode of behavior elicited or determined by a particular situation; may be verbal, postural, or expressive.Stereotypic Movement Disorder: Motor behavior that is repetitive, often seemingly driven, and nonfunctional. This behavior markedly interferes with normal activities or results in severe bodily self-injury. The behavior is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance or a general medical condition. (DSM-IV, 1994)Compulsive Behavior: The behavior of performing an act persistently and repetitively without it leading to reward or pleasure. The act is usually a small, circumscribed behavior, almost ritualistic, yet not pathologically disturbing. Examples of compulsive behavior include twirling of hair, checking something constantly, not wanting pennies in change, straightening tilted pictures, etc.GuidebooksWechsler Scales: Tests designed to measure intellectual functioning in children and adults.Books, Illustrated: Books containing photographs, prints, drawings, portraits, plates, diagrams, facsimiles, maps, tables, or other representations or systematic arrangement of data designed to elucidate or decorate its contents. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983, p114)Language Development Disorders: 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.Nerve Fibers, Unmyelinated: 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.Neuropsychiatry: A subfield of psychiatry that emphasizes the somatic substructure on which mental operations and emotions are based, and the functional or organic disturbances of the central nervous system that give rise to, contribute to, or are associated with mental and emotional disorders. (From Campbell's Psychiatric Dictionary, 8th ed.)Mental Disorders: Psychiatric illness or diseases manifested by breakdowns in the adaptational process expressed primarily as abnormalities of thought, feeling, and behavior producing either distress or impairment of function.Language Development: The gradual expansion in complexity and meaning of symbols and sounds as perceived and interpreted by the individual through a maturational and learning process. Stages in development include babbling, cooing, word imitation with cognition, and use of short sentences.Child, Gifted: A child or adolescent who, when compared to others of the same age or experience, exhibits capability of high performance in intellectual, creative, or artistic areas, possesses an unusual capacity for leadership or excels in specific academic fields. (From PL 100-297, Sec. 4103, Definitions)Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity: A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-V)REM Sleep Behavior Disorder: A disorder characterized by episodes of vigorous and often violent motor activity during REM sleep (SLEEP, REM). The affected individual may inflict self injury or harm others, and is difficult to awaken from this condition. Episodes are usually followed by a vivid recollection of a dream that is consistent with the aggressive behavior. This condition primarily affects adult males. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p393)Methylphenidate: A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER in children and for NARCOLEPSY. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE. The d-isomer of this drug is referred to as DEXMETHYLPHENIDATE HYDROCHLORIDE.Anxiety Disorders: Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.Attention Deficit and Disruptive Behavior Disorders: Includes two similar disorders: oppositional defiant disorder and CONDUCT DISORDERS. Symptoms occurring in children with these disorders include: defiance of authority figures, angry outbursts, and other antisocial behaviors.Central Nervous System Stimulants: A loosely defined group of drugs that tend to increase behavioral alertness, agitation, or excitation. They work by a variety of mechanisms, but usually not by direct excitation of neurons. The many drugs that have such actions as side effects to their main therapeutic use are not included here.Parenting: Performing the role of a parent by care-giving, nurturance, and protection of the child by a natural or substitute parent. The parent supports the child by exercising authority and through consistent, empathic, appropriate behavior in response to the child's needs. PARENTING differs from CHILD REARING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the children and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.Reflex, Acoustic: Intra-aural contraction of tensor tympani and stapedius in response to sound.Catatonia: A neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by one or more of the following essential features: immobility, mutism, negativism (active or passive refusal to follow commands), mannerisms, stereotypies, posturing, grimacing, excitement, echolalia, echopraxia, muscular rigidity, and stupor; sometimes punctuated by sudden violent outbursts, panic, or hallucinations.

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 ...

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. I work for Devon and Cornwall Police, and manage a team of people who gather and input crime data. In my role, I rely on ...
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 ...

... - 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. ...
ASPERGERS SYNDROME LESSON. Directions:. Print the Aspergers Syndrome reading comprehension passage and questions (see below).. Students should read the passage silently, then answer the questions. Teachers may also use the text as part of a classroom lesson plan.. Lesson Excerpt. Aspergers Syndrome is a disorder in which people have extreme difficulty with social interaction. There is much more to it than just being shy around other people. This disorder is severe to the point that it causes major problems socially, at work, and in other areas of life. 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. The disease however found a place in the official guidebook of all mental diseases called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-IV (Fourth Edition) in 1994.
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).[116] The word neurotypical (abbreviated NT) describes a person whose neurological development and state are typical, and is often used to refer to non-autistic 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. Internet sites like Wrong Planet have made it easier for individuals to connect.[10]. 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.[117] These views are ...
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
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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Asperger syndrome (AS) and 30 controls). Measures of mean gray-level intensity, entropy and uniformity were extracted from gray matter images at fine, medium and coarse textures. Comparisons between AS and controls identified higher entropy and lower uniformity across textures in the AS group. Data reduction of texture parameters revealed three orthogonal principal components. These were used as regressors-of-interest in a voxelbased morphometry analysis that explored the relationship between surface texture variations and regional gray matter volume. Across the AS but not control group, measures of entropy and uniformity were related to the volume of the caudate nuclei, whereas mean gray-level was related to the size of the cerebellar vermis. Similar to neuropathological studies, our ...

Most symptoms persist through the teen years. And although teens with Aspergers can begin to learn those social skills they lack, communication often remains difficult. They will probably continue to have difficulty "reading" others behavior. Your teen with Aspergers syndrome (like other teens) will want friends but may feel shy or intimidated when approaching other teens. He or she may feel "different" from others. Although most teens place emphasis on being and looking "cool," teens with Aspergers may find it frustrating and emotionally draining to try to fit in. They may be immature for their age and be naive and too trusting, which can lead to teasing and bullying.. All of these difficulties can cause teens with Aspergers to become withdrawn and socially isolated and to have depression or anxiety.footnote 1. But some teens with Aspergers syndrome are able to make and keep a few close friends through the school years. Some of the classic Aspergers traits may also work to the benefit of ...
The aim of the present study was to examine whether children with Aspergers syndrome differ from typically developing children in the appreciation of and behavioral responses to simple slapstick type humor, in which cognitive requirements that are commonly impaired in autism spectrum disorders are reduced to a minimum. Short slapstick scenes and matched non-humorous control scenes were extracted from popular movies to produce an appropriate humor assessment material. Twenty-four boys with Aspergers syndrome (5 to 14 years) and 24 age-matched typically developed controls were tested. The results indicated that children with Aspergers syndrome enjoy humorous material as much as healthy children do, if the humor elements are simple and the incongruence can be perceived independently from theory of mind requirements, inferential demands, or language abilities. However, similar funniness ratings and behavioral expressions of mirth to the humorous scenes, but relatively higher values in response to ...
This study finds no evidence of opioid peptiduria in male children with autism or Asperger syndrome, nor is there any evidence for any differences in urinary profiles between children with autism and Asperger syndrome and a matched control group. There is therefore no evidence that opioid peptiduria performs as a biomedical marker of autism, nor that it can be usefully employed to predict or monitor response to a casein and gluten exclusion diet. These findings are counter to the putative mechanism of the leaky gut syndrome.. There are a number of strengths in this present study which support these conclusions. Firstly, we report the findings from urine analysis of children with well-defined autism and Asperger syndrome across a broad range of cognitive abilities.. Secondly, while the initial stage of our study employed the same HPLC technique as described by the main research groups reporting opioid peptiduria, we had the advantage of well-defined synthetic opioid peptides with which we were ...

1) Dear Alice,. Do I really have Aspergers Syndrome? The other day, one of my friends suggested that I was showing some autistic signs, which made me quite worried.

Q. I wanted (hopefully) add some insight to your reply to the "toddler teacher" letter that appeared April 11. Within seconds of reading the letter, my husband came to me and asked "tell me what you think?". First, my pediatrician told me when I considered pre-school for my now teenaged children that up to the age of 4, children really dont play "with" each other. You can sit them side by side and theyll play, but most likely theyre simply playing side by side, without true "socialization.". On the other hand, my now 14-year old son had virtually the same issue going on not so many years ago. My son has Aspergers Syndrome, diagnosed just three years ago.. Generally, Asperger Syndrome is defined as an "Autism Spectrum Disorder" - usually "Aspies" are high functioning, very bright, articulate individuals who have difficulty fitting in socially.

by Physicians Weekly , Jan 20, 2012. Proposed changes to the definition of autism, currently under review by an expert panel appointed by the American Psychiatric Association, are expected to significantly reduce the soaring rate of autism diagnoses. The panel is completing work on the 5th edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or "The DSM." Cases of of autism and related disorders such as Asperger syndrome or "pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified" (PDD-NOS) have skyrocketed since the early 1980s, and many researchers believe the numbers are inflated due to vague criteria. The proposed change would consolidate all three diagnoses under one category, autism spectrum disorder, removing Asperger syndrome and PDD-NOS from the manual. Under the current criteria, one can qualify for the diagnosis by exhibiting six or more of 12 behaviors. Under the proposed criteria, the patient would have to exhibit deficits on a much narrower menu: three deficits ...

Aspergers syndrome (AS) is one of the pervasive developmental disorders-a group of neurodevelopmental conditions of early onset characterized by impairments in social interaction and communication, and by restricted interest and behaviors. This chapter provides an overview of the historical and research background of AS leading to current debates; the changing nature of this discussion given the transformative changes in autism research in general in the past decade; the unchanging nature of these individuals needs whether or not the term survives new updates in psychiatric classification; and suggestions for a future more likely to clarify old questions while raising new and more scientifically helpful ones. To anchor this discussion in clinical realities, an overview of clinical features, treatment, and support services is also provided.

Although most students with Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism have average mathematical ability and test slightly worse in mathematics than in general intelligence, some are gifted in mathematics[14] and Asperger syndrome has not prevented some adults from major accomplishments (such as winning the Nobel Prize).[15]. The questionnaire was tried on Cambridge University students and a group of sixteen winners of the British Mathematical Olympiad[10] to determine whether there was a link between a talent for mathematical and scientific disciplines and traits associated with the autism spectrum. Mathematics, physical sciences, and engineering students were found to score significantly higher, e.g., 21.8 on average for mathematicians and 21.4 for computer scientists. The average score for the British Mathematical Olympiad winners was 24. Of the students who scored 32 or more on the test, eleven agreed to be interviewed, and seven of these were reported to meet the DSM-IV criteria for ...
Mood and anxiety issues can have a notable impact on the behaviors, relationships, and overall functioning of children with autism spectrum disorders. A study conducted by Joseph Kim and his colleagues demonstrated a higher rate of anxiety and depression problems in children with autism and Asperger syndrome compared to typical peers. This study compared 59, 9 to 14 year old children with a diagnosis of autism or Asperger syndrome (AS), to a sample of 1751 community children. Not only did children with AS and autism have a higher prevalence of anxiety and mood problems, but this also had a significant impact on their adaptive functioning and their familys functioning. There was no difference found in the rate of anxiety and mood problems between the children with AS versus autism in this cohort. The children in this study were originally identified at 4-6 years of age. They had a diagnosis of autism or AS based on data from the Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI: Le Couteur et al., 1989). They ...

Not like women, female canine have menstrual cycles for their complete lives. Asperger kid on parenthood few of them had been fairly good. Around 2-5 girls out of 1,000 will become pregnant after laparoscopic sterilisation. Nonetheless taking a pregnancy test is just too quickly proper now. So Id recommend that you just go to an gynecologist, get a blood check finished, and inform them your signs. Therefore, further ultrasounds may present a possibility to establish findings in line with fetal Zika virus infection and provide pregnant ladies the option of amniocentesis to test for Zika virus RNA.

Aspergers Syndrome is finally moving into the spotlight. Questions that have perplexed Aspergers (AS) and neurotypical (NT) family members alike are now finding answers.
With a view to developing a brief screening instrument for autism symptoms in a general population of adolescents, seven items from the Asperger syndrome (and high-functioning autism) diagnostic interview were adapted for use as self-report in an online questionnaire for youths aged 16-19 years (N = 10,220). The selected items target lack of social understanding (4 items) and rigid and repetitive behavior and interests (RRBI; 3 items). Factor analyses were performed, and the seven items were also validated against self-reported ASD diagnosis. Best statistical model fit was found for a bifactor model with one general factor and two domain specific factors tied to social difficulties and RRBI. Both the general and the domain specific factors were associated with self-reported ASD diagnoses. The scale (referred to as the Autism Symptom SElf-ReporT for Adolescents and Adults - ASSERT) had good screening properties with a receiver operating curve-area under the curve (ROC-AUC) of 0.87 and a ...
The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome is the definitive handbook for anyone affected by Asperger's syndrome (AS). Now including a new introduction explaining the impact of DSM-5 on the diagnosis and approach to AS, it brings together a wealth of information on all aspects of the syndrome for children through to adults. Drawing on case studies and personal accounts from Attwood's extensive clinical experience, and from his correspondence with individuals with AS, this book is both authoritative and extremely accessible. Chapters examine: * causes and indications of the syndrome * the diagnosis and its effect on the individual * theory of mind * the perception of emotions in self and others * social interaction, including friendships * long-term relationships * teasing, bullying and mental health issues * the effect of AS on language and cognitive abilities, sensory sensitivity, movement and co-ordination skills * career development. There is also an invaluable frequently asked questions

Assalamualaikum... Watching this movies requires us to look for further information because we need to know what is autism and what is common sign of autism because some parents still lack of knowledge about it and they did not know what to do if the have children suffered with autism.. Here is a bit of information that I can share... What is Autism?. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders, characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior. Autistic disorder, sometimes called autism or classical ASD, is the most severe form of ASD, while other conditions along the spectrum include a milder form known as Asperger syndrome, and childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (usually referred to as PDD-NOS). Although ASD varies significantly in character and severity, it occurs in all ethnic and socioeconomic groups and affects ...
autistic disorder, Asperger syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder. Signs and symptoms often become apparent in the first 2-3 years of life and vary significantly from person to person. Common symptoms shared by people with ASD include restrictive and repetitive behaviors, social impairment and communication difficulties. The underlying cause of ASD is generally unknown and it is likely that a variety of factors contribute to the development of the condition. ASD appears to run in some families, suggesting that genetics may play a role in some cases. Although there is no cure for ASD, treatment is available that significantly improves the long-term outlook for affected people. Treatment often includes a combination of techniques such as medications, occupational therapy, speech therapy and ...

Herman Melville was a truly great American writer. His Aspergers syndrome helped him to be a great observer and to focus obsessively on his work. He had a highly fertile imagination; contrary to received wisdom, persons with Aspergers syndrome are capable of this".. Throughout Melvilles life, he displayed many common behaviors of people with Aspergers Syndrome. Mainly he was obsessive over his writing and over keeping his routines. He also was hyperactive, helping him be able to write for hours on end. It was discussed in Fitzgeralds book that Melvilles daily routine often consisted of him shutting himself into his office in order to write the entire day, usually not emerging until late afternoon for his first meal. Melville didnt always work so intensely but was insistent on having things done the way he liked. He would become enraged when his wife or staff didnt do things the way he imagined them to be done. This was likely because he had trouble empathizing with others and imagining ...

INTRODUCTION. The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) and Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) are international classifications frequently used for neuropsychiatric diagnoses in childhood and adolescence. Among their mental disorders, the most complex in both the ICD and DSM are the pervasive developmental disorders Autism and Asperger Syndrome because of the diversity of explanations of causal mechanisms. Explanations for the causes of these disorders range from purely emotional factors to exclusively cognitive factors. The following are four approaches that we have chosen for discussion in this report. Psychoanalytic This theory attributes autism to a lack of parental investment in the dimension of desire and narcissistic completeness (Zamo & Paiva, 2007). If the functions of projecting an idealized image and pre-conceived notion in the infant are not present, then he/she does not enter the symbolic world and becomes a ...

This book concentrates on children with Asperger Syndrome and High-functioning Autism, and is designed to address many of the difficulties these children experience with friendships. However, even if your [and my] children have not yet reached this stage of development, the book can still be a useful tool.. The book covers ten different scenarios. Each chapter starts with an explanation to the adult, parent or carer and raises awareness of some of the common pitfalls. This is then followed by a social story to illustrate how they can be overcome. I enjoyed both aspects of these scenarios for several reasons.. Firstly, the explanation told me that the writer knows what she is talking about rather than preaching from on high.. Secondly, it is apparent from the text that her intuitive approach works-she gets the quirks and triggers-in that although you are working on one particular skill, there can be lots of other issues that interfere with the main plan.. Thirdly, she reveals parental errors in a ...

... James H.

Contrary to popular belief, autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) do not preclude athletic achievement, though athletes with ASDs tend to prefer individual physical pursuits to team sports. Sports in which those with ASDs have excelled include running, swimming, surfing, martial arts, baseball, basketball, and archery.. The following examples indicate what can be achieved when an athletic activity becomes the special interest of an individual with an autistic spectrum disorder. Many credit the achievements of these athletes to the intense focus, penchant for routine, and in some cases, unique cognitive abilities that come with ASD.. Running. Anthony Crudale, a competitive marathon runner, was diagnosed with autism at 18 months old and didnt speak until the age of four. Crudale has overcome numerous obstacles, achieving a university degree in art. His interests include heavy metal music and long-distance running.. Those who dont have a good understanding of autism often assume that Crudale been ...
Despite the rising interest in intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder, the extent to which interventions are effective on gross motor outcomes is currently unknown. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of different intervention approaches on gross motor outcomes among children with autism spectrum disorder using meta-analysis. A total of 18 studies met the inclusion criteria for quantitative analysis. Pre- and posttest means and SDs were extracted to calculate effect sizes. Potential moderator variables were chosen based on important intervention characteristics. The results suggest that interventions have a large effect on gross motor outcomes among children with autism spectrum disorder (δ = 0.99, SE = 0.19, p , .001, 95% confidence interval [0.62, 1.36]). The interventions that were 16 total hours or longer had a significantly larger effect than those less than 16 hr. In addition, the interventions in experimental settings had significantly larger effects than ...
