Christina,
    I don't have a son with it, but I am a paraprofessional who works with
a student with Aspergers.....I'm far from an expert, but I'll try to answer
any questions you care to send my way.

Tricia

May I recommend a book called _Shadow Syndromes_?  I believe the authors
are Ratey and Johnson though I may have forgotten.  The book gives a
great description of depression, manic-depression, Asperger's,
schizophrenia, attention deficit and many others, not in their extreme forms
the way we read about them in the newspaper but in their local every day
varieties the way we often run into them in real life.  (Which isn't to
say that someone somewhere isn't dealing with the harsher forms every
day, but I think you take my meaning.)

I can't shed any light on the query, but on Saturday I met a woman whose son
has Aspberger's.  I had never heard of it before, and here on RCTQ there's talk
about it!

I once asked what the symptoms (is that the right word) are for this, but
never got an answer (at least my server never d/l one for me <G>). Could
someone explain it to me..?

OT asperger syndrome

Post by Lenore and Bria » Wed, 07 Jun 2000 04:00:00


Yep, Asperger's has affected our family.......my stepson has a fairly
"severe" case of it--my husband's is milder.  DH is just sort of an "odd
duck."  My DSS is a bit odder..........

Asperger's is on the high functioning end of the Autism spectrum.  "Aspie's"
are generally very bright but socially very awkward........don't understand
body language or other people's emotions--it appears to me they don't
experience a wide range of emotion themselves.

DH and DSS both can go from calm to rage.........of course, with me
provoking them sometimes as I'm wondering what is wrong with them as I'm
harping on......we live pretty peacefully most of the time........

Our other two boys have ADHD.........life is really tough sometimes........

Quilting (or the promise that I can get back to it.....) keeps me sane!

Happy quilting,

Lenore

I agree! There is never a dull moment in our household! 12yo son has ADHD,
PDD-NOS (really Aspergers), and Tourettes; 8-1/2yo son has ADHD, and some
tic-like mannerisms we are closely watching. And I'm just plain certifiably
crazy! <grin>

I'm new to this group. I joined because I'm a quilter. Reading through
previous messages I found this one.
It's sometimes a comfort to find I'm  not alone. My 9 year old son has
Asperger's and ADHD. I agree about life being  tough sometimes but must it
admit it can be interesting to.

Kia Ora!

Welcome, fellow Kiwi.  There are a few of us here - we're the ones who add
the Far Side (of the Planet) character.

So, where are you from?  How many quilts have you made?  Got family (human
and/or otherwise)?  Chocolate (some here find this question important -
beats me, but there it is)?

And be precise with that place name - she with the "pins" (on topic, note)
who lives in NM where they have a "dry heat" needs to know exactly, but
she's been a bit preoccupied lately and you may get away with it while she's
got her eyes fixed someplace else.

And I'll be right interested in all your answers too!
