Current Topics of Interest Continued

22 May

To add to my earlier list of current topics of interest, today I found myself interested in Asperger’s Syndrome, an Autistic Spectrum Disorders. I browsed a couple of journal papers, including one that looked at specific traits in individuals diagnosed with Asperger’s, scientists, college students and a control group comprising women and men. I am also rather intrigued about the experience of women diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, so I am going to find a few papers on this as well.

Paper –
Baron-Cohen, S., Wheelwright, S., Skinner, R., Martin, J. and Clubley, E. (2001) The Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ):Evidence from Asperger Syndrome/High-Functioning Autism,Males and Females,Scientists and Mathematicians Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders 31:1

    You may find it helpful talking with someone that has Aspergers will help more 🙂
    I have Aspergers if you would like to talk?

      Thanks for the comment and offer. Yes, that is a really good idea – to talk to someone diagnosed with the syndrome. I might get in contact with you. Thanks again.
