  • Why do people sometimes think I have autism after hearing my voice when autism has nothing to do with the sound of your voice?

    This does not happen often, but on occasion I do get the odd person who accuses me of being autistic after hearing my voice. I don't let it bother me at all, but it happens more often than I would like. I am not autistic, and I know this because I haven't been diagnosed (note I have gone through... show more
    This does not happen often, but on occasion I do get the odd person who accuses me of being autistic after hearing my voice. I don't let it bother me at all, but it happens more often than I would like. I am not autistic, and I know this because I haven't been diagnosed (note I have gone through psychological tests to verify this.). It just bothers that people are so misinformed about mental illness and think that autism has to do with the sound of your voice when it is very clearly a developmental disability so nothing to do with the way someone talks. Honestly I could care less about what the odd individual thinks about me but I was wondering if anyone has any idea as to why someone would think I am autistic after hearing the sound of my voice.

  • Any tips on cooperating with mentally ill people?

    Best answer: Talk to his parents. They are the ones who best understand him and how to reach him. Also talk to the band teacher about options.

    I've seen similar situations where the person submitted a video to play during class, instead of a live recital. That way it could be done in a comfortable setting with no stress, and repeated until it was right.

  • Is my teen daughter dyslexic?

    I know this is a weird question but I want to know if she is or not without having to spend so much on a doctor trip. Many times when she speaks she mixes up words really bad. She always says that she will think out the sentence in her head but it never comes out the right way. She also has problems reading out... show more
    I know this is a weird question but I want to know if she is or not without having to spend so much on a doctor trip. Many times when she speaks she mixes up words really bad. She always says that she will think out the sentence in her head but it never comes out the right way. She also has problems reading out loud because of the same reason. Her writing and everything seems okay but she just can't ever speak correctly. She is in her late teens and I haven't been around her much but I'm scared she has developed dyslexia and if she has I want to get her help asap.

  • How can I get used to sitting at a school desk?

    Best answer: Can you have a fidget toy? Or a small patch of carpet you can have on your desk to rub. Also you may be given permission to have a nice textured cushion or piece of carpet to sit on while you're on your chair. If you're mostly in special ed this shouldn't be an issue.

    Best answer: Can you have a fidget toy? Or a small patch of carpet you can have on your desk to rub. Also you may be given permission to have a nice textured cushion or piece of carpet to sit on while you're on your chair. If you're mostly in special ed this shouldn't be an issue. Try and calm your thoughts as you sit behind your desk and remind yourself that this is a necessary thing to learn and is going to help you become better able to be adaptable as you move out of school and into the workplace. Also speak with your teachers and teacher aides to come up with a plan to help you adjust. They will be more than happy to help and to devise a strategy that will best suit you. I work in special ed, and we will go out of our way to help students achieve in every possible way, and it is nothing but a pleasure to do so - especially when they are ready and willing to work together towards building new skills. All the very best to you.

    Best answer: You can find tests for autism (Aspergers is a type of autism) online, but they are not accurate and cannot give you a real answer. Psychologists can administer the real test, which includes three portions:

    -An IQ test, which looks for discrepancies. Basically, people of both high and low IQs can have Autism. However, most people with Autism will preform much worse in some areas than others, whereas neurotypical people tend to be pretty even across the board.

    -A behavioral index and diagnostic interview. The psychologist will ask you a lot of questions about why you think you might be autistic. They will also ask about your strengths and weaknesses. You might be asked how you feel you do at executive functioning like switching tasks, keeping track of time, and emotional regulation. You might be asked or tested about social skills.

    -A familial report. If you are young, the psychologist will want to ask your parents, siblings, etc. questions to see how your behavior has changed over time. They might ask your family to come to the office, or they might ask them to fill out a separate form.

  • Why are people uncomfortable with autistic people when autistic people cannot help it (my sister is like this)?

    Best answer: Well because your sister is autistic, you’ve grown up with it and know what it’s like. Many people do not experience growing up with a sibling with autism which makes it difficult for them to understand them. Autism also comes in many different severities which can also make it difficult to understand. The people... show more

Many people do not experience growing up with a sibling with autism which makes it difficult for them to understand them. Autism also comes in many different severities which can also make it difficult to understand. The people with autism that I personally know have the sweetest hearts and are super fun to be around which upsets me that others don’t get to see their joys

  • How do I convince my wife that our son will be just fine with going to public school?

    My son is a slow learner. He is 4 years old and is a little behind, but is slowly catching up. He has been going to an Early Learning Center since he was 3 to help him catch up with his motor skills and speech. He is able now to communicate with my wife and I, but still doesn't talk clearly like most 4 year old kids can. We're both Catholic and would like to send him to a Catholic school, but doing so is just too expensive for us. I know we can't home school because both my wife and I aren't qualified teachers who know how to teach and present educational material. I think that if we attempted to home school our son, he would fall even further behind. The only best option for our son, I believe, is either a public or charter school. My wife is willing to do so, but is so nervous about our son going to a public school because she believes he'll be corrupted by children who aren't Catholic. She worries about the following: "What if he hears other kids talk about sex?" "What if he makes friends with kids who's parents aren't strict with their children" "What if he is taught about homosexuality" I'm not really worried because I went to public school and I turned out just fine. I think that sheltering your children will not prepare your kids for the real world. I have seen of how some home schooled kids turn out from parents who are unqualified to teach ... and it isn't pretty. How do I convince my wife that our son will be just fine with going to public school?

  • Can someone with knowledge of autism explain this behaviour?

    There’s this one autistic relative of a friend and he will be on the computer playing games or watching videos about games and he will be sort of laughing, then flapping his hands and rewinding the video over and over, is this normal for an autistic person?
