Ever Wondered if You Have Autism?

Advertisement

Autism is super hard to diagnose if the case isn't severe. It's even harder to diagnose in adults, especially women. Autism in women at any age tends to be written off as a mental illness. In fact, it's so hard to diagnose mild cases in adults that a lot of people are researching and self-diagnosing due to the lack of avenues to pursue medically. Do you think you might be on the spectrum? Take this quiz to find out.

Chantelle

Quiz WriterChantelle

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?

Boys are diagnosed with autism four times more often than girls

1 in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder in 2020, according to the CDC based on data from 2016. 1 in 34 boys and 1 in 144 girls identify as autistic. Boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed, and they're diagnosed earlier. Most children are still being diagnosed after four years of age but can be confidently diagnosed at two. Because of the disparity in health care, minority groups are diagnosed later and less often. Autism Spectrum Disorder is still very mysterious to the scientific community. Some parents believe that vaccinating their children causes ASD. The scientific community has proven this as a myth and completely untrue.

(Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
