Understanding Asperger’s Syndrome

There are many health issues in our world and new ones being discovered everyday..   Many of which the general public may or may not have knowledge of or understand ,  even the general Medical field has questions regarding some of these disorders. The following is just one of many misunderstood health issues in the world today….and is presently being researched…

It is Asperger’s Syndrome, named for Dr. Hans Asperger, who was the first to describe this disorder in 1944…. However…it was not recognized as a unique disorder until years later. The symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome vary and can range from mild to severe. and is estimated to affect 6 out of every 1,000 children, and is more common in males than in females, and usually diagnosed in children between the ages of 2 and 6 years, however it is not uncommon for the disorder to go undiagnosed for years…sometimes later in adulthood… Eccentric or repetitive behaviors, with this condition may develop , with repetitive movements ,limited range of interests, and an intense, almost obsessive compulsion. Movements of people with Asperger’s syndrome may seem clumsy or awkward, and coordination may be hampered. Unusual rituals may  develop  , like getting dressed in a specific order. Many people with Asperger’s syndrome are exceptionally talented, such as in music or math.                                                                                                    If symptoms are present, an evaluation ,  by physical and medical exam is performed, although there are no specific/designated tests for Asperger’s syndrome, X-rays and blood tests may be performed , to determine if there is a physical disorder causing the symptoms. If no physical disorder is found, the patient may be referred to a specialist , such as a psychiatrist or psychologist, neurologist, or another health professional who is specially trained in developmental disorders to diagnose and treat Asperger’s syndrome.                                                                                                                                         People with Asperger’s syndrome are at risk for developing other conditions, schizophrenia, depression, ADHD and OCD ( obsessive  compulsive  disorder )however there are optional treatments available for these conditions..

Teachings are structured to meet the person’s unique needs, behavior modification supporting positive behavior and decreasing negative behavior Therapy designed to increase functional abilities, such as speech and physical, to increase functional abilities. There are no medications to cure Asperger’s syndrome , but medications may be used to treat specific symptoms, which may accompany the disorder such as depression, anxiety, hyperactivity, and obsessive-compulsive behavior. Due to the fact the level of intelligence which is many cases is higher than average, some people with Asperger’s syndrome are able to function very well, especially if diagnosis is made early in life.

Although it is not proven, this disorder may be inherited, and is passed from parent to child as it tends to run in families and cannot be prevented or cured.

Research is being done through investigating early brain development and functioning, social interactions in infants, rare genetic variants and mutations, associations between autism-related genes and physical traits, possible environmental risk factors and biomarkers, and a potential new medication treatment.

Just one of those days ?

Now I am not saying that I am perfect. .trust me I had an experience just the other day…

Senility shouldn’t always be seen as a negative…why just the other day I started to walk to my bedroom for something and when I got there realized I had forgotten why…but I did notice dust in the corner of the room. I went to get the mop in the laundry room and noticed that my husband had put all his dirty laundry in the basket and it was full so I filled the washer and started a load. Walking back to the bedroom I passed through the bathroom and noticed the sink and mirror was splattered with shave cream and toothpaste so I wiped it down and put out fresh towels.I started back to the bedroom with the mop and my phone rang, it was my Aunt, we chatted for about an hour then she had to eat her lunch and take her medication so we said good-bye. I then started back to the bedroom but upon reaching it realized I forgotten why again,  so I headed for the kitchen to make myself a cup of tea, put the kettle on  and as I looked out the window noticed there was no water in the birdbath, so I went outside to fill it and also put seed in the feeders..went back into the house and heard the kettle whistling …ahh finally a well deserved cup of tea..went to sit down and  to my amazement the chair was ice cold…it was then I realized why I originally was going to the bedroom…It was to put on some underwear….however….      there is an upside…..  I accomplished more things that morning than usual…

Education..any progress ?

It’s thirty years later and were are no further ahead regarding education,oh excuse me I forgot, Now we can’t do the pledge of allegiance and say “God” and heaven forbid we use the term “christmas” and heaven forbid we violate some childs’ right to wear, to say etc…when we went to school and a teacher reprimanded us..you knew when you got home you were in for it..now we just text parents and our attorney shows up.Now you have an option to take gym…but obesity is the majority..so what’s wrong with 30 minutes of sweating(if you can even break one in that time)..No I wouldn’t want the job of being a teacher, although let’s jump on the band wagon and punish teachers because of bad parenting, when our children don’t do well on FCAT….

just a thought, what do you out there think..I want to hear from parents,teachers..past and present…2
