Reading & IQ: It is best for you to get tested by a clinical psychologist who specializes in learning disorders and Aspergers. Group IQ tests such as given in schools are ok but not nearly as accurate and detailed as a one-to-one w/a pro. Same goes for achievement tests.

I have 2 kids one has a major heart defect and has aspergers syndrome. My other was born 100% healthy. What are my odds of having another healthy baby?
It Depends: There may be more factors to consider before arriving at reasonably predictable odds. I suggest, you seek out a medical geneticist for your best answer.

It would, in my opinion, be unethical to give you the answer you want without having much more data. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Friend told me they have Aspergers from a lack of oxygen when they were a baby. I don't believe them, but I could be wrong. Is this possible?
We don't know the: Exact cause of Aspergers, autism in general, bi-polar or ADHD, even though we have identified genetic markers for all. We do know that if the mother is using drugs while pregnant that the chances go up for the baby to develop any of these, but again, this is NOT a one-to-one correlation. Lack of O2 is correlated with learning disabilities, as well, so it could be a factor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
