    Why did the term 'Asperger' stop being used so much? What's wrong with it?

    A general question because I just don't understand what went wrong with the term and some people don't like using it anymore? Why is it better to say for ex. ''autism 1- 2''etc..instead?

    Working on an app to support ASD

    Hello there, my name's Joel and I got diagnosed with Asperger, 3y ago. Here in Luxembourg, support is free and super nice, but they're missing people to fulfill all the needs to help and support people with ASD. I then checked if there are good, supporting apps on the market and found none. For...

    Subtyping the Autism Spectrum Disorder

    I've studied tons of the professional materials and I have to tell you that the so-called high-functioning autism (HFA) is probably not the Asperger's syndrome only (according to the current classification) but there is also another subtype of HFA that takes place accurately between the Kanner's...

    36 year old divorce father of 2.

    Hello. I’ve come to finally accept that I may be on the spectrum at some level. I never felt like I fit in. The thought that I could have autism never crossed my mind seriously until I met an autistic woman at a coffee shop. I finally felt like I was talking to someone who could understand my...

    People's I.Q

    Are other people really have less iq than me or is this just another "thing" of being an aspie? I excessively feel like all the other people are bunch of gorillas that can somehow talk my language. I surely can't control this feeling, it is annoying and it is making my life harder. Innerly, i...

    Am I Autistic?

    Hey, i'm 17 and i think that i might be autistic. I can't explain the reason (cause i don't know it) but i can't talk to my parents about this. It just seems impossible to me. So, i can't get any professional diagnosis for now. So, i'm trying to put a self-diagnosis. Here are my scores on...

    Experience with cannabis or magic mushrooms?

    I will start by saying I live in a prohibited state in the bible belt, but my experiences with cannabis have been generally positive. I am however curious about psychedelic mushrooms. Does anyone here have any experience with them? I've done plenty of research, and know that environment, people...

    Wife of Aspergers looking for support.

    Hello, I am new to this forum. My husband of 27 years has Aspergers (self-diagnosed) is a very loving and kind husband. It has been very difficult trying to find better ways to communicate.

    I think I may have been lied to about having Asperger's.

    For most of my life, I was told by my parents that I had Asperger's syndrome. Last year I found my old diagnosis paper and took a picture of it on my phone because I thought it'd be cool to have that. When I looked at it today I realized it said this, "OP's diagnoses are Pervasive Developmental...

    Emotional support

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this because we only recently found out my boyfriend has a mild form of Asperger's. I always thought he just wasn't the type of guy- or because he didn't care enough about me to support me emotionally so it somehow feels like a relief to know he really can't help it. I'm...

    Anyone on the spectrum NOT have sensitivity issues?

    Hi! I’m new here. My GP has referred me for an ASD diagnosis (of course I’ll be waiting a while) I’ve got something on my mind and would love to hear from the community. I’ve learnt a lot about Autism over the years (purely out of interest) and am still trying to refine my understanding...

    Hello! Desperately Seeking Advice...

    Hi everyone! I'm going to try to be as thorough as I can (and as brief as I can). It would mean a whole lot to me to hear your feedback. I'm going to just lay it all out here... I have always felt different. Sometimes I have felt special and sometimes I have felt inferior. Sometimes I have...

    The Invention of Lying

    Hi! I watched a movie that I think all aspies should see. It's called The Invention of Lying. It takes place in a fantasy world where everybody tells the truth, and suddenly a guy realizes that he can lie, and that it is very powerful! I am 47-yrs-old, but only up until I was 40 I realized...

    Childhood memories and being autistic

    I was talking to my therapist about how I only noticed I was different when I was a teenager, and as a child I was pretty normal and played a lot with other kids, etc. But I asked my parents and they said I was always playing alone. Then we found these old home videos and, sure enough, I was...
