Controlling Aspergers Self Talk
I am not comfortable or get nervous when I'm in a group. It's much easier to talk one on one. Do I have any problem? Asperger? Any solution?
Social Anxiety: I understand your discomfort in a group situation. Respect yourself for being comfortable to talk one to one, therefore it is not Asperger. At the end of the day, make list of your social encounters one to one, reflect on your comfort, easiness and relaxed feeling. Some nervousness and discomfort in unfamiliar groups is ok. See a Therapist if you have marked anxiety or avoiding social settings ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When i.Was younger i had intense interests in various things (ie dinosaurs) and i would constantly talk about it and.Know all facts. Is that aspergers?
Not so fast: Sometimes kids are bright, curious, and interested in things -- a normal state rather than diagnostic of a problem. Some kids with aspergers can also show such characteristics, especially if they cannot related to others except through their own specific interests. Please don't be so quick to self-diagnose. But it there's something you're really worried about in your current life, see your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I know a friend who have Asperger and he is feeling down i would like to help him. Would it be an idea to talk to him about getting ssri ?
Yes - talk is good: The real answer is "it depends". Perhaps all your friend needs is your company, shoulder & ear to share concerns. Unfortunately, it's tricky finding right ssri for each individual. Worse, ssris don't work for everyone. Even so, they shouldn't be dismissed out of hand but preferably used in conjunction w/professional counseling. But in the end, you can never have too many friends. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I heard this, People with aspergers have no problem with talking to new people. Is this true, as I seem to have difficulty. Or am I just shy/introver?
Yes: Just as aspies tend to have poor physical coordination, modulating the speed, tone and volume of the voice may be difficult. Things that are obvious to others are seldom obvious to the aspie; criticism will only hurt and guidance is often very helpful. This isn't something that junior can handle on his own and a short course of speech therapy may be very helpful. ...Read more

Would a sensory integration disorder be a symptom of Asperger's syndrome? my now 11yr old daughter was diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder 1yr ago. however when I'm speaking to others about her symptoms the first comment I hear usually is 'oh
Hi, : Hi, concur with dr. Rinker. Aspergers syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder. Autism, is the most impairing of the autism spectrum disorders. Pervasive developmental disorder comes next and children with aspergers are usually the highest functioning of three. Children with autism spectrum disorder usually have sensory overload which includes tactile stimulation. I recommend talking directly with your daughter's psychiatrist about how best to deal with her tactile sensitivity. One quick option is the use of a camisole that is made of smooth or silky material as an undergarment. It is likely to create less friction against the nipples without highlighting just her nipples. Additionally, pulling bandaids off of skin repeatedly could be quite painful - especially in a child who is already sensitive. I hope this is helpful. Take care. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
