Percentage Of Asperger Children With Extremely High Iq
Depends: In general, those with asperger's have a roughly normal to possible quite high iq.

So, these individuals have marked social impairments and odd behaviors but normal or better iq. ...Read more
I was reading at a college level in fifth grade. I have Aspergers and ADHD. I was tested as having an IQ of 90 as a child. Is this possible, or MD?
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. Whatever the numbers say, just work on being the best person you can be, like the rest of us. Peace and good health. ...Read more

It there's need: If a person with asperger's needs an organ such as liver, heart, kidney, etc, s/he can be on the transplant list like anyone else. Transplant teams have established criteria for screening potential patients, though.

What is the best way to tell my children about our divorce? Our son hugo has aspergers and our 14 year old has celiac and type one diabetes
No one best way: I believe it's impossible to predict the BEST way to go about telling children about a divorce. The method should be one agreed-upon by both parents and I would think should involve either a family meeting or at least one parent telling both children at the same time. And then, the other parent having a conference if it's not possible to have the whole family together. Best of luck to you all. ...Read more

Aspergers is an: Idiosyncratic disorder, kind of like ADHD--there are as many subtle variations on a theme as there are people who have it. The common elements are problems in social interactions, particularly in reading and responding to social cues. This affects all who are close. Asperger's also produces heightened interests in fewer subjects, coupled with a pattern of odd gesturing and speech mannerisms. ...Read more
A few ideas: These people are different. They miss social cues, can focus intensely on single subjects, do better at strength & endurance sports rather than coordionation / team sports, and seem strange and antisocial. Don't try to change the person. Tell them how you feel ("I like it when you.... I don't like it when you....") They may be grateful, as they know they are often jerks without meaning it. ...Read more
