    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...

    Getting diagnosed: Bravest thing I did for myself

    Four months ago I stumbled upon article about a book a father of autistic child has wrote about his experience and his hardship of having to deal with his son.

    Coming out to the world

    I was wondering how many of you have come out as openly autistic. Do you have a blog, a You Tube Channel etc.? Are you comfortable identifying yourself publicly as autistic? I was diagnosed four years ago and have only told a handful of my closest family and one or two others. I wonder if I...

    Formal assessment (Ontario, Canada)

    So if I were to pursue a formal assessment, how would I go about it generally and specifically in Ontario, Canada. My interest is two prong: 1. I have a sense that I am pretty inconsistent in my abilities, so it'd be helpful to have a better picture. I.e. visual, spacial, verbal stuff. My son...

    Hey everyone! My name is Sarah and I have a 16 month old son. He is getting an official assessment in the next week or two. I’ve always known he had such a unique and special character.

    Does it sound like I have Aspergers?

    Hi! I'm 24 years old, female. I've been to several psychologists and doctors looking for an answer and they either tell me they've never heard of my symptoms before, or they disagree on diagnoses. Sorry if this seems all over the place! Since I was a baby, I've always had little repetitive...

    Label Fear?

    ++ I am suspected to have ASD so please understand this is coming from a vulnerable place. I don’t want anyone to take this the way , I just want to know if anyone ever felt the same for even just a moment.

    I just got my diagnosis but I am a bit confused.

    Hello, I literally just got my diagnosis 5 minutes ago over the phone. They told me I have the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum because they don't see Autism, Aspergers or any of the other types as seperate diagnosis anymore. Is that true? I went in to get a possible diagnosis for Aspergers because...
