    I have aspergers. But I’m still young and don’t know much about it, so I can’t really say anything.

  2. silversquall says:


    I thought he was an autistic savant *shrugdss*.

  3. AmyLeefan1024 says:

    Rain Man wasn’t a savant he was autistic.

  4. kmb1022 says:

    not necessarily…Asperger’s Syndrome has only been “discovered” for less than 15 years. Therefore the likelihood that she got treatment as a child is small. It is harder to treat adults diagnosed with AS then with kids. The character was probably diagnosed as an adult.

  5. TheaterRaven says:

    I loved the character of Dr. Dixon! I wish she had become a regular on the show.

  6. bluejay1025 says:

    I have AS but she is extreme.

  7. GiBeans says:

    Were you the one who said ‘Dr. Dixon has Rainman syndrome? ‘ Then yes I did call you an idiot.
    Because you were misinforming people, since rainman did not have AS, he was a Savant.
    Although I think I just got what you meant. You were being sarcastic weren’t you? Meaning Dixon was poorly portrayed? If so, I’m sorry I called you an idiot. I never get written sarcasm. I though you had meant it.

  8. Diamonddavej says:

    She is more like caricature of severe High Functioning Autism, I founded and run a social group for people with AS and autism, so I know what I’m talking about. I have AS myself. P.S. did you call me an idiot?

  9. GiBeans says:

    and I’m not talking about this scene!
    I’m talking about the whole character in the show.
    This scene is more than fine. ;D
    I’m just replying to all the people who’ve made comments on the character.

  10. GiBeans says:

    I agree with what someone said there about AUTISM being a very large spectrum. it is. But Asperger’s is defined IN that spectrum, therefore it’s not a spectrum itself.
    This is an exaggerated interpretation of AS. At her age she would have learned to act “less” in front of others.
    I’m not speaking against the actress either. I think she acted great on what was given to her.
    I have AS and I know what I’m talking about.

    first time that bailey cant say anything

  13. Diamonddavej says:

    Dr. Dixon has Rainman syndrome, an unusual form of autism only seen in Films and TV.

  14. 21BiscuitStreet says:

    shes just way too neurotic

  15. NeniTheOtaku says:

    I have Asperger’s syndrom as well, but I find Dixon a bit extrem. Or I’m just a much milder case than her, I don’t know. Anyway, I like her character, but it’s for sure that not all Aspergers are like her, I’m living proof. Some, though, may be.

  16. ArmyShoesChum says:

    I love Mary McDonnell, and I thought she did great in these episodes that she was on Grey’s. Exaggerated or not on AS she did good.

  17. Tearsxdontxfall1314 says:

    I think it’s a great scene, although I think she overdoes it a bit.

  18. unchartedwaters00 says:

    that behavior might not have anything to do with AS just something else have you ever thought of that???

  19. unchartedwaters00 says:

    I’m sorry but I must disagree once again… this in my opinion is an occurate portrayl… there are famous qualified doctors that I KNOW OF who don’t have great social skills like this… if your interested I can give you a list

  20. wicaco says:

    I also have Asperger’s and I agree that this is an exaggerated portrayal of our disorder. Even in an extreme case, Dr. Dixon would have learned to become better adjusted to make the successful career that she has.

  21. NastySulk says:

    What I love about this scene is how initially they all just thought she was a total nutter but when she asked if she knew what Asperger’s was, Dr Bailey just completely went BAM!! and realised. I just love how she realised it and was like oh CCC-rap and how Dr Dix was upset in her own way about it.

  22. Kaiwyn says:

    This is a CHARACTER. Her portrayel may not be the same degree of Asperger’s as yours but it is nonetheless a portrayal of a character with Asperger’s. It is brilliant. I love the character and want to see more of her.

  23. OuraniaAdair says:

    I disagree with those saying that the portrayal of Aspergers is wrong, otherwise I wouldn’t have known after 20 seconds of watching the programme that she has it.

    It’s not really exaggerated, there are others out there who it affects like this, even if others can control it.

    I’m lucky to only have a mild form of HFA but I still find it extremely difficult to maintain eye-contact at all, so suggesting she should be able to control it, in a new situation especiallt is offensive to me.

  24. unchartedwaters00 says:

    I’m sorry but I would have to disagree with you entirely… I’m someone with AS as well… this is accurate… for someone with an extreme case… there i very large spectrum… and this is a very accurate portrayal of someone with this disability

  25. trikid2200 says:

    Actually, where you’re wrong is that individuals with AS all behave in a number of different ways. To assume that all people with AS act exactly the same is just ludicrous. Grey’s did what it could in trying to put the syndrome out there to the forefront to be recognized. Maybe it was a little bit exaggerated, but what do you expect? Izzie is talking to a dead guy, Meredith drowned, and two people had a pole stuck through their bodies after a train wreck.
