Should Aspergers syndrome be treated as a mental illness?

There isn't a common agreement about that, some people think it is a mental ilness, some think it's not, I personally have Asperger's syndrome and I disagree that it should be, purely because I think that Asperger's people are equal(If not greater) to everyone else

Is asperger's syndrome serious?

Well, it does exsist. However, it's not really anything totally devistating. How do I know this? I have aspergers. Basically, a person with aspergers will form completely normally, it's just the social parts of their brain are a bit unusual. All that means is they'll be socially unique :) Although some people may not like them for it, children with aspergers tend to have a higher IQ and a greater enthusiasm for life than people without aspergers. Oh, and one more thing- us aspergers kids are a bit obsessive about some of the things we like :) but NO, aspergers is not something serious. I don't think it needs medication either... they put me on medication for it once. I didn't like it at all. If you're asking this about a child, and one day some crazy psychiatrist tells you to put them on some kind of pills DON'T do that. The pills only messed me up, I can't see how it would be much different for anyone else with the same condition.

How many in the us are diagnosed with asperger syndrome?

If the first child has a mild form of Asperger's Syndrome will the second child have it too?

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. There is a genetic component to autism spectrum disorders. The chance of having a second child with autism or Asperger's Syndrome is greater than the usual chance of having a child with an autism spectrum disorder. However, it is more likely that the second child will not have an autism spectrum disorder than that the child will have one. If the next child does have it, it could be a milder or more severe case than that of the first child. According to one study, if one child in the family has autism, the chance that another will also have autism is 10%. In that study, the chance that an identical twin has autism when the other does is 82%. Other studies give results ranging from a 5% chance of a second child with autism to a 15% chance. However, if there are two children in the family who have autism, the chance of a third child with autism increases greatly to about 30%. (One study indicates that the chance of a third child with autism is 50% if the child is male.)

Are Jewish people more likely to have aspergers syndrome?

Religion itself does not affect ones chances of developing mental or physical conditions. However, there is also an ethnic component to being Jewish. Because people of an ethnic group are more likely to marry others who share their ethnicity, they would have greater chances of sharing the same genes for certain illnesses. That explains why Jewish persons (as well as Cajuns and southeastern Canadians) are more likely to have children with Tay-Sachs Disease.There is no evidence that ethnic Jews are more likely to have Asperger's Syndrome.One factor in Aspergers and autism seem to be low vitamin D levels prenatally and during infancy. There are genetic variations in the vitamin D receptors, meaning that some people need much more. To help explain differences by gender, females seem to have a slight less need for vitamin D. So add all these factors together, and it would seem that males of African descent, born with the variant vitamin D genes living in a place like Russia or Canada born to vitamin D deficient mothers who breastfeed would have a much greater chance of developing autism and related disorders than others.

What are facts about Edward's syndrome?

Edwards' syndrome is associated with a broad spectrum of abnormalities which consist of greater than one-hundred and thirty discrete defects involving the brain, heart, craniofacial structures, kidneys and stomach. Approximately five to ten-percent of children with Edward's syndrome survive beyond their first year of life, requiring treatments that are appropriate for the various and chronic effects that are associated with the syndrome. Children with Edward's syndrome usually experience issues with feeding that are related to problems with breathing, sucking and swallowing.

If your father and brother both had Asperger's Syndrome does this mean any children you have will be born with it?

No, it does not mean that all of your children will be born with autism or Asperger's Syndrome. However, because the condition has a genetic component, it means that there is a greater likelihood that you have that gene, in which case you might pass it on to some of your children. You can get tested for the gene if you want so you know if there's a possibility of passing it on to your children

What is known about Asperger's Syndrome that pertains to America?

The incidence of autism and Asperger's Syndrome seems to be greater than average in California's Silicon Bay area; Redmond, Washington (the location of Microsoft's headquarters); and Cambridge, Massachusetts (the location of MIT) - places with the highest populations of computer programmers and engineers. These are people who may have AS but remain undiagnosed because they found a niche where they can function in society.
