Dealing With Someone With Aspergers
Asperger's syndrome: Actually, the process is pretty much the same as for a person without asperger's syndrome. Either you do like someone or you don't. We don't usually have good reasons, at least in the beginning. Asperger's syndrome is associated with many symptoms which impair social relationships, so it may be harder to relate, but in the end, you either really like them the way they are or you don. T.
Social issues: It is an autistic spectrum condition and pertains to the higher functioning end of autistic spectrum. It primarily leads to social limitations and makes it difficult for the person to adapt to many changes. Because they are higher functioning, they can be successful in occupational settings but feel more comfortable in careers requiring less social interaction.
No tests required: It's made on the history and talking to the person. Most aspies are troubled & perplexed by their inability to fit in, and will welcome a chance to learn better social skills so that their advantages (strong science focus, etc.) can benefit themselves and others. The rapid mechanical speech and the failure at team / coordination sports also help.
Clinical picture: A constellation of behaviors and patterns of thought that tend to run together. Powerful focus on a few narrow intellectual areas. Poor physical coordination. Much difficulty reading and understanding other people. Rapid mechanical speech. The tendency to be a jerk without realizing it is distressing both to the aspie and to others. Focus of rx is on learning to be a diplomat -- can help us all.
How the mind works: Asperger types excel at focusing narrowly on single topics, and have trouble reading and understanding others. The worst is that they can be unlikable without realizing it. Managing it consists of learning social skills, often with guidance, and taking advantage of the plusses that it offers intellectually.

How long aspergers: Aspergers disorder is considered a life long condition. However, with learning social pragmatic skills and reduction of anxiety, individuals often seem more like those with non verbal learning disabilities as they get older.

Great question: Remember the many plusses. Choose your intellectual focus in something that helps others & will get you a good job. Science & tech -- find what you like best. Get a strength or endurance sport rather than one with teammate interactions. Keep life simple. Say only nice things. Relationships are more important than being right. Tell folks, "i'm just me" rather than "i have a disease." u'll be liked.See 1 more doctor answer
Maybe he does: There's no magic cure for Asperger's. I'm going to assume that Junior isn't just withdrawn and awkward because Dad's an ineffective model / teacher. Asperger's offers many advantages especially in the computer age. The key is getting guidance learning how to talk to people, read people, choosing a strength or endurance rather than coordination or ballgame sport, and achieving to be respected.
It's not magic: On the whole, it's probably a plus. Choose a sport that's about endurance / strength rather than coordination / teamwork. Say only nice things. Get guidance with social skills that others learn naturally. Focus on science / tech rather than comics / train schedules and you'll go far in life. If being alone / single is okay with you, you're extra-fortunate. Embrace who you are. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
