Is aspergers on the autism spectrum?
Yes, Asperger Syndrome is on the autism spectrum.
The only real difference between Asperger Syndrome and Autism is that those who were diagnosed as having Asperger Syndrome had no developmental delays in childhood. In adulthood an Autistic person and a person with an Asperger Syndrome cannot be distinguished, and Asperger Syndrome was merged with Autism because it was not enough of a difference to consider it a separate condition - especially considering everyone develops at different rates. Often Asperger Syndrome is a diagnosis given to avoid the stigma of Autism, it's a redundant term.
This question is very hard to answer because some people believe that it is, and some people believe that it isn't. So much remains to be found out about it that this is a hard topic to be able to delve into.
It might be. If there be a spectrum, like the electromagnetic spectrum, from neurotypical to severely autistic, then Asperger may be somewhere in the middle. It should be, perhaps, at the lower end of the autistic side of things ('High Functioning', mild, autism), on the boundary between autism-like conditions and near-autistic neurotypical. A 'diagram' may help.
Neurotypical = = Near-Autistic Neurotypical = = Asperger's Syndrome = = 'Severe' (very socially limited, more speech-limited) Asperger's = = Autism = = 'Severe' (extremely speech-limited) Autism
No, aspergers is an autism spectrum disorder that won't kill you
Aspergers is a form of Autism which is an mental disability. Autism is often described as a 'spectrum disorder' because the condition affects people in many different ways and to varying degrees.
It's a mental. Aspergers is a form of Autism which is a spectrum disorder and Aspergers is classed as a psychological disability.
Aspergers is a form of Autism. A good book to read would be "Thinking in Pictures" by Temple Grandin. She, herself has a form of autism, if not aspergers specifically. She describes not only her own experience with profound insight, but she also discusses the entire spectrum of Autism.
Asperger is different from autism because people with Aspergers are less restricted with behavioral interactions than those with autism. Asperger's is a form of autism, but it is high-functioning and Aspergers is not as severe as actual autism is (Take it from me: I have aspergers and my younger brother has autism)
Autistic spectrum disorder , it ranges from very mild to serious , mild autism is called aspergers syndrome , people can live very independently just like you or i , but on the other scale of the spectrum they will need 24 hour care
Aspergers Syndrome can be called: Aspergers, High-Functioning Autism, or you could just call it Autism, because it's a type of Autism.
There's no such thing as mild autism, there is just autism. A person is born Autistic, how their autism effects them can vary greatly and change throughout their lives. This is why autism is know an a spectrum disorder. Also some people claim Asperger Syndrome is a 'mild form of autism' but this isn't the case, it's just an old diagnosis for Autistic people who didn't display developmental delays - or often it was used… Read More
kanners autism, or more commonly known as classic autism. It is low functioning and sufferers usually have below average IQ. There are other types of autism like savants (rain man) which is extremely rare. Also Aspergers syndrome is under the autistic spectrum although there is speculation whether its a condition of its own, sufferers usually have average or above average IQ and can often be classified as high functioning autism. I have Aspergers syndrome.
It is very likely the 2nd will have aspergers or be autistic to a more severe degree than aspergers on a personal note on the subject my brothers 1st has aspergers and his 2nd is 7months old and we've found out she is so far on the autism spectrum it is trets or rhetts but to be fair my brother has mild aspergers himself so you know, its all in genetics some say, others disagree… Read More
There is no increase in Autistic children, only an increase in diagnosis. There have been major changes in diagnostic criteria over the last few decades - also consider that autism wasn't even a diagnosis until the 80's and Asperger Syndrome only became a diagnosis in 1994 (although now merged with Autism). With increased awareness and improved diagnosis it means more people are able to identify autism in their children and seek diagnosis.
No, It is Rare for a person with HFA, Aspergers, and PDD-NOS to be Asexual, in a whole about 10 percent of people on the Autistic Spectrum are asexual
Spy vs Spy does have Aspergers or High Functioning Autism.
The autistic spectrum is the main one which includes aspergers ectect but autism is not a diseases there can be many resons for no communication from mental health difficulties to a stroke.
Not sure but he probably had aspergers
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurological differences which impacts on a persons social and communication abilities. Autism Spectrum Disorder is a spectrum so symptoms and severity can range greatly.
Put it this way. A spectrum is a representation of the entire set of colours that are visible. Different types of autism can be represented as different colours on the autism spectrum.
No, but he does have Dyspraxia, a condition which is often found alongside Asperger's or other Autism Spectrum disorders, which is why he may appear somewhat similar in some ways to a person with Asperger Syndrome.
Patricia A. Prelock has written: 'Treatment of autism spectrum disorders' -- subject(s): Autism spectrum disorders in children, Autism spectrum disorders, Treatment
You don't get autism spectrum disorder. Autism is a neurological difference, people are thus born autistic, it's not something that you 'get'.
Aspergers syndrome is a disorder having to do with a person's ability to interact socially. Because it is a social disorder, the general health of a person with this syndrome would not be affected. The life expectancy is the same as that of any other person. The movie "Rain Man" is about a man with Aspergers (or somewhere on the Autism Spectrum). It may give you a better idea of what it is.
No, there is not a cure for autism spectrum disorders. Autism spectrum disorders are neurological disorders, which means the brain has developed atypically. At present, there are not ways to "rewire" the brain of someone with an autism spectrum disorder. However, there are ways to help people with autism spectrum disorders. Medications can help with some of the effects of autism spectrum disorders. Social skills training can help with other effects. Sometimes, changes in the… Read More
No, Annie Lennox doesn't have Asperger Syndrome. Annie Lennox doesn't show any outward signs of Autism - although women on the spectrum often hide their symptoms.
Yes he had OCD,aspergers and autism
He has aspergers imo. but he's still a funny.
Aspergers Syndrome is a type of Autism. You would likely take the child to a specialist who treats this type of brain disorder.
ASD. Autism spectrum dissorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is not a symptom of autism spectrum disorders. However, people with autism spectrum disorders can exhibit behaviors that appear similar to OCD, without having OCD. Also, people with an autism spectrum disorder can have OCD as a comorbid condition.
Yes, it is a learning disability, unless they are Asperger's due to Autism. Comment: Asperger's Syndrome is not a learning disability. It is a neurological condition that is part of the autism spectrum. People with Asperger's Syndrome can also have learning disabilities.
The visible-light spectrum is a good analogy of spectrum, from red (long wavelength) light to blue (short wavelength) light. Autism shows a spectrum of characters just as light shows a spectrum of wavelengths. The spectrum goes from non-autistic 'normal' or neurotypical individuals (off the lower end of the spectrum) to highly autistic individuals at the far end of the on-spectrum autism slide. The on-spectrum autism spectrum goes from mild conditions such as mild Asperger Syndrome… Read More
Asperger's Syndrome and autism are both autism spectrum disorders, but they are at different parts of the spectrum. The two conditions have very similar symptoms.
Autism spectrum disorders are considered an Axis I diagnosis in the DSM-IV.
Asperger's Syndrome is considered part of the Autism spectrum because the core feature - the inability to understand social interaction is the absolute reality of the entire autism spectrum, inclusive of AS. .
In the Autism diorder range
The common name for Autism is just that: Autism. The full term would be Autism Spectrum Disorder.
No. The descriptions of the autism spectrum disorders are such that you cannot have more than one. However, with more information, the diagnosis might change from one autism spectrum disorder to another. A person with an autism spectrum disorder can have other conditions or disorders, such as ADHD, epilepsy, or bipolar disorder.
No. Autism runs in families and is probably genetic.
Asperger's Syndrome (AS) is similar to autism. Both belong to the Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) group. AS differs from Autism and other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. (see related links)
I don't know how many people have seizure disorders that are on the autism spectrum. I have when I was experienced it as a small child. There is truly no knowing how many people nowadays in the autism spectrum have seizure disorders.
No, you cannot 'get' Autism from vaccinations. Autism is a neurological difference - just like we all have different race, eye colour, etc. we have different brains - a person is born Autistic as a result of genetics. Vaccines cannot change our genes or our brains so vaccines cannot make a neurotypical person into an Autistic person. The idea vaccines cause autism is a myth based off a long debunked fraud.
Autism is known as a spectrum disorder.
Whether you use capitalization depends on the use. You would capitalize if it's the beginning of a sentence or sometimes people will capitalize Autism Spectrum Disorder in order to make it easier to identify the acronym ASD. When speaking about Autistic people or the Autism community this is also capitalized to identify it as an identity.
No. Anger is not a symptom of any sort of autism spectrum condition. But people may end up angry at having to live in a world where there are no adaptations or concessions for them, and where there is so much stress on them as a result.
Information about autism spectrum disorders can be found from many different resources. Some online resources include Autism Science Foundation and CDC.
Adam has Aspergers syndrome, not quite autism, but somewhat similar.
No, Autism is not a disease at all. Autism is a neurological difference, it is known as Autism Spectrum Disorder and can sometimes be considered a disability.
yes. I DO TOO (just added this to the previous yes.) I've got Aspergers, a mild form of autism that tends to present itself differently than other forms of autism!
Yes, a child can be diagnosed both with Autism Spectrum Disorder and a learning disability too. In fact Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is considered a 'cousin' to Autism Spectrum Disorder and is often comorbid with Autism.
Autism spectrum disorder and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development.
Autism isn't a disease or a virus, thus there are no strains of autism. Autism is just autism, it was previously split up into Autism Spectrum Disorder (Classic Autism), Asperger Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS), childhood disintegrative disorder, and Rett Syndrome - now all are merged under the Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis.
