Castrati: The male voice deepens at puberty because the male hormone (testosterone) changes the shape and tension on the vocal folds, which generate the voice. Without it, the voice remains high. There are treatments which can be prescribed ranging from hormone therapy to surgery to deepen the voice. Check with a primary care provider and/or a laryngologist for options. ...Read more

If im 20 years old, and I have a high pitched voice, and a skinny frame, is there any possibility that I will develop a thicker frame and deeper voice?
Depends: Further changes are dependent on your stage of development and genetics. If you haven't completed your pubertal development yet, there may still be refinement to your characteristics. Also, as one ages, there are subtle but continued changes in these traits. ...Read more
No...but if the dude: Were to lose both testicles for any reason he might maintain a "boy soprano" voice, eunuchs were exactly this. A man with one testicle with cancer and it is removed, stil has another, and if his voice has or had not changed, the other testis makes suffiicent testosterone to provide male characteristics, and if the testosterone level is low, it can be replaced. Still a real dude. ...Read more

Mostly language: The major difference between ausitm ANS asperger's is early language development--relatively normal in the latter. So-called high-functioning autism typically means average or above iq, which usually implies fairly good language. Even so, language measures typically most distinguish the two. That's why new criteria being considered will lump everything under autism spectrum disorder. ...Read more
They probably don't: There is a new classification system which does not differentiate autism, pdd, and asperger's. They are all referred to autism spectrum disorder. High functioning means that there is a normal iq. This indicates a good chance at being able to function adequately as an adult and independently. ...Read more
Comparison: Personally speaking, there is no comparison. They are both special in their own ways. Both need lot of support and understanding. And sometimes they will surprise you with their normality! ...Read more
Depends: Some say very little difference, but technically ppl with autism have some history of speech/language delay while ppl with asperger's disorder have no history of such a delay. Typically ppl with autism struggle more with verbal tasks, but may excel with nonverbal/visual tasks. Often ppl w/ aspergers struggle more with visual tasks but have strong verbal skills. This is not always the case though. ...Read more
Yes and no: Asperger's and autism may run in some families. But not in all families with one child with the disorder. If it runs in famlies it is likely to be due a multiple factor inheritance not a single gene. In short the only way to tell is to have your daughter tested by a psychologist with expertise in this area. ...Read more
Different: Aspergers syndrome patients (as) are uniquely different than high functioning autism patients. As patients are socially awkward, but have better adaptive abilities, have no self stimulation or echolalia, and are more academically capable. High functioning autism patients retain their self stimulation and echolalia. Then are able to succeed in school, but they are different clinically than as. ...Read more

your age is listed as 33. I wonder if you are asking about a child (?)
it is fairly common for people with pdd to have some tics (habit movements and noises)
these are very common in kids, even without pdd.
Usually kids outgrow them in puberty, some don't

some meds increase tics-eg stimulants for add. ...Read more
I have high functioning autism but I feel an urge to make weird sounds? Is there a drug for that?
Tics: You have a good amount of insight into your condition! It is not unusual for kids and adults with HF Autism to make unusual sounds, and have repetitive movements. Whether to treat depends on the amount that these behaviors and urges are affecting you socially. See a good cognitive behavior therapist for starters and see if you can work towards suppressing the behaviors. Meds may follow. ...Read more
My child has high functioning autism but feels an urge to make weird sounds that he can not stop?
I'm a 21 year old male. What exactly is high functioning autism? Apparently I am disgnosed with it. : (is that a bad thing?
Forget the label: If you are functioning well, then I would simply forget the label. If you heading into difficulties you should seek out psychotherapy or psychiatric treatment just as anyone else would. The label at this point could only be helpful in terms of entitlements, but it sounds like you will not be needing them provided you are able to live independently. It is possible that the label no longer applies. ...Read more
How effective is the gaps diet for young adults with high functioning autism? Are there any contraindications to its usage?
My son was diagnosed with high functioning autism when he was 3 six months later his diagnosis changed to pddnos. What is the difference?
It depends: If the original diagnosis was being used interchangeably with asperger's then the skill set must have changed enough to feel there was not enough specificity for that diagnosis. Pervasive developmental delay- not otherwise specified is a broader category of description. The diagnostic criteria is changing and autism spectrum disorder will be the diagnosis and level of function will be added. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with "high functioning autism at 17 what is this exactly? Is my life ruined because of it? Do I think differently from everyone?
No 'exact' answer!: The current understanding of austism-spctrum disorders proposes that the neural pathways in such individuals is altered to some degree from that in the normal population, such that they process data in a different way. No reason to think your life is 'ruined'! no two people think identically anyway! But, you may miss social cues that others perceive easily- like facial expressions; you train... ...Read more

Fetal alcohol syndrome: this is caused by excessive intake of alcohol during the pregnancy, especially the early part of pregnancy when the nervous system is developing. As to aspergers, no one is quite sure at this time. ...Read more
Not a diagnosis: The term "high functioning autism" is a term usually referring to individuals who have some but not all symptoms of autism. It is not truly a diagnosis and usually covers a large spectrum of people who do not have autism but have many similar symptoms, such as social awkwardness, a need for extreme structure in their lives and difficulties with reading others' emotional cues. ...Read more
Increasing quickly: The number of those diagnosed with autism is now under 1/100 with the majority of those being male and in the category of high functioning. The significant increase over short period of time suggests an environmental influence. This is likely on top of subtle genetic susceptibilities that have not yet been well defined. Genetics will take time to sort out so adjustment to environment are key. ...Read more
Not much: "autistic disorder"will include as, pdd-nos & autism. Kids with as may sound like " little professors, "talk about favorite topics without conversational give-and-take (pragmatics) and without typical use of tempo, pitch & loudness (prosody). Kids with hfa struggle with language, but may quickly figure out how to make something work by seeing & handling it. Both have "normal" full-scale iq, >70. ...Read more

Hmmm: High functioning is exactly that. Able to achieve in school, get higher education, possibly be self sufficient, attain some social appropriateness. Regular autism is very variable. Severe autism is a tragedy. There are no known genomic or neurologic factors at this time that allow us to distinguish outcomes. Most important is love, behavioral intervention & acceptance. ...Read more
