    @LiamXDXD Ur not worthless. Everyone is different. There are lots of people not diagnosed as Autistic Spectrum who have a lot in common with you. Its just that u have certain traits to a greater degree than the average person

  2. foximaxi35 says:

    LOL u have no understanding. It is fundamentally a PERCEPTUAL DIFFERENCE, the brain works differently. There is a lot about the “Deficits” but there are gifts. It is not a personality disorder, its a different way of processing information.

    Seal yourself with holy spirit! Be holy, Root out your eyes for causing you to watch violence and pornography, cut away your sexual organs that lead you to adultery, sodomy, fornication, masturbation etc. Drink muriatic acid for smoking, abusing alcohol and drugs. Slit your throat for bowing to idols such as flag and crucifix. Do not attend church meetings, end Christendoom, restore Christian unity [Christianity], no church, no division!

    Is a syndrome and a disability not a personality disorder. These people are handicap just accept it and stop trying to feel more special by making up things.

    It’s not an illness, but Mum says it’s a disability. Some people on the Internet say that it’s just a personality that doctors have labelled as a disorder. It makes me feel like a fraud when they say that because I get so much extra support at college which most students don’t.

    Im an aspy and I think aspergers is a gift from God, I would rather be an aspy than a neurotypical. aspergers is the reason I got a college grade reading level in third grade, aspergers gave me such a great interest in science, especially molecular biology and ecology, so great in fact that when I was only 7 I knew what amino acid was! all aspys are geniuses in certain subjects. apparently mine is science, God must want me to help humanitys scientific progress. and so I will.

    Thank you! So sick of that stupid misconception.

    My sister who is 17, soon 18 has Asperger’s..I still need to learn more.. I fear I haven’t learned enough and how I can support her..= /

    everybody has a different personality” no one is the same

  11. autisticaplanet says:

    Thank you for bringing up the loud noises issue. I find in Asperger’s definitions that the sensory issue gets dropped where as with Kanner autism it is left in. I have AS and severe auditory sensitivities.

  12. PeterWalserAnimation says:

    I’m a seventeen-year-old who has Asperger’s Syndrome, and I enjoy being as strongly intelligent as I am.

  13. popmusicno1fan says:

    I didn’t say AS was a disease, I said that around the net people have been describing it as one even though it’s false :)

  14. AspergersGuide says:

    Actually, Asperger’s syndrome is not a disease because you can catch a disease and you can cure a disease. Asperger’s is the way your brain is wired and it is generally believed that you are born this way…therefore, you cannot “catch” Aspergers nor can you “cure” it in the sense that you can cure a disease.

  15. popmusicno1fan says:

    By the way, if you look around on the internet, you can find that Asperger’s is described as a disease because of how it affects social functioning and communication etc. I don’t understand why it does that just because people with AS have trouble with it :S

  16. lankster13 says:

    I have aspergers and this video does hekp people understand the condition

  17. popmusicno1fan says:

    The “Aspies often have trouble” slide’s points are just like hypersensitivity, isn’t it? I have that too :)

  18. ghodium says:

    good video. i like the fact that, in the UK at least, work psychologists dealing with aspergers adults are using the social (not medical) model, where the employer is encouraged to help work around those problems (such as by providing a private workspace for the asperger: changing the asperger’s environment, not the asperger). i feel that, particularly in intellectual jobs, this frees the asperger to do what he does best, away from those superfluous sources of demand and anxiety on the asperger

  19. I have been a resource teacher for children with Asperger’s for 5 years now. In this case, I feel that it’s a gift. I appreciate the fresh perspective, and my students always seem to be happy and laughing. However, I don’t know if I would be saying the same thing if I were the one suffering from the illness. I’m sure there are some difficulties, and not autistism is Asperger’s, which I’m not as knowledgeable about.

    However, Liam, I can honestly say that you are probably worth a lot more than so many of the sheep that I meet outside the classroom!!!!
