Do I Have Symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome?

Advertisement

Asperger syndrome, known widely as Asperger’s, is an older diagnosis for a developmental disorder that now falls under the much broader umbrella of autism spectrum disorder. People who have Asperger’s may have difficulty socializing, have fewer things that interest them, desire uniformity and structure, or possess distinctive, unique skills or strengths. Many people who have these characteristics wonder if they might have Asperger syndrome or another autism spectrum disorder. This quiz serves to show you how likely it is that you have Asperger’s. Remember, this is not an appropriate substitute for a proper diagnosis, though results may indicate that you should see a specialist.

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Did you know?

Asperger syndrome is extremely difficult to diagnose

Everyday, people aren’t the only ones who have difficulty figuring out if they have Asperger’s. Many professionals struggle with the diagnostic process, and a comprehensive assessment usually involves a large team of experts. The difficulty of diagnosis stems from our lack of understanding of the condition, as well as Asperger syndrome symptoms resembling those of many other conditions. Personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, social anxiety disorder, Tourette syndrome, bipolar disorder, and many others are all candidates as a differential diagnosis for Asperger’s.
