Do people with asperger's or autism do hand flapping?

Do people with asperger's or autism do hand flapping?

Sometimes: This movement can be common, can be present all the time or can only be there a little bit, or sometimes not at all. Each individual with autism is an individual. If it is present, I consider it significant. If it is absent it doesn't mean autism is not present.

Any link between aspergers syndrome & hypothalamus dysfunction?

Any link between aspergers syndrome & hypothalamus dysfunction?

Maybe: There were news media reports in the mid 2000's regarding oxytocin & aspergers. The latest definitive article I found, from mit & published 2010, indicated the lower amounts of oxytocin produced could be implicated in social awkwardness of neuropsychiatric disorders. But did not have a cause & effect relationship. The hypothalamus is the last common neural pathway for social interaction in mammals.

Hello I am called charlie and I have aspergers syndrome. I am also a clinical psychiatrist. I would like another psychiatrist's if I should have risper?

13 years old?: I'm sorry, but only adults can use healthtap, and your age is listed as 13 years. You would also be the first 13-year-old "clinical psychiatrist" I have ever met. The time required to complete that training is 12 years, so you would have had to start college at 1 year of age. Please ask your parents and/or your doctor to explain about risperdal. Best wishes anyway.

How do I get a 10 year old boy with aspergers syndrome to eat healthy foods?

Provide good food: Aspies have very narrowed interests that they defend with awesome pedantism. Try to provide nutritious foods within their parameters. Arguing with an aspie is futile and can lead to conduct problems. This isn't to recommend they eat whatever they want, but use wise choices within their menu of likes. See <http://ww.

Was it the: Autism spectrum quotient from aspergertest. Net? "32-50 indicates a strong likelihood of asperger syndrome or autism." however, this is a screening test - it doesn't necessarily mean that you have this diagnosis. It would be good to let both your psychiatrist and counselor know.

Can someone explain adult aspergers syndrome?

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.

What can I do to check if I have aspergers syndrome?

Diagnosis isn't key: What you do is what matters. No magic rx. Key is learning not be be an unintentional jerk. Relationships are more important than being right. Say only nice things. Talk about the other person's interests. Immerse yourself in something useful to others (science). Get good at a strength / endurance sport. Apologize & say u r struggling to learn. Work hard to be kind to others, expect zero in return.
