    These all links are very important and helpful for every person to get information about autism symptoms and Aspergers Syndrome. I can suggest you one more site to add these links, You can add Autism Spectrum Disorder in your list.

    Welcome Davide!

    I heard somewhere that Einstein was not able to tie his shoelaces - interesting in the light of the fact the he was one of the greatest scientists alive, since Newton.

    Oh, by the way, try googling Jacob Barnett - this kid is 13 years old, hilarious, entertaining, and very brilliant. His video is fun to watch!

    Have a great night - Rob

    Hi again - I just checked Wikipedia on this book. It sounds very intriguing. Right now I have another deep philosophical book called The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I think there are many interesting parallels in the Cat's Cradle to developments happening right now before our eyes. Though the book is fiction the author seems to have a foretaste of the future.

    Thanks for sharing this - Rob

    i know not a proper resource but i think might help as personally found it helpful is a person called dan bull on youtube he has 2 albums first called safe and second called face it is rap music but not as in 50 cent etc but more traditional non commercial way personally i am not keen on rap music but found these amazing.
    he also has his raps on about games like skyrim etc
    sadly his ones above about his aspergers arent as well known.

    The only thing that kept my psychiatrist from giving me a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome was that I scored too high on "empathy". I understand that there is some evidence, however, that female Aspies are better at reading social cues and at interacting with others.

    Am hoping to read about latest diagnostic tests for aspergers. Interested in reading forums dealing with relationship difficulties when one partner has aspergers.

    Thanks for this. I actually have a hard time trying to find articles and resources for ASD. I had copied all that is written here. and may I share a book that I've read, It's Raining Cats and Dogs - this is very informative one. Thank you. Cheers everyone!

    I'm new here, too, but stumbled on a book entitled "Aspergirls" that discusses that topic. Good luck on your journey.

    Three years ago, I was diagnosed with provisional Asperger's disorder, then my therapist and I were working together for two years, and she confirmed that my behaviors were very Asperger's. I tend to have poor eye contact when talking with people. Sometimes, I cannot look at someone in the eyes when I am uncomfortable. I tend to look down when I am upset or when I feel threatened by another person, when talking.

    This article for any students with AS, or parents of students with AS:

    How students with Asperger's cope at university | Education | theguardian.com

    I found the link to the "guide to assisting AS students", which is linked in the article, very helpful as well - it has loads of helpful advice for studying and even a useful organiser template to help manage your time and routines.
