Hey Mahopac, I know one of our boardies has a ds with Asperger's - 3bigboysonelilgal. Not sure how much she comes here any more but I'm also FB friends with her; I'll send her a message and see if she can pop over here.

My great-nephew was originally diagnosed as PDD-NOS, but the flag finally came down on Aspie.

So you might have an aspie?

As with many things, if you line up all the experts they point in every direction.

One nice thing about right now, is because all of the little kids who were diagnosed as Aspies 10, 15, 18 years ago are hitting adulthood, there are far more resources available for late teen/early 20s Aspies.
