Girls and autism and aspergers

So tonight I have an article to post that talks not only on the differences in boys and girls with autism but also with aspergers. It’s entitled “What are the Signs of Autism in Girls-Is Asperger’s in Girls Overlooked?” and comes from Autism Parenting Magazine.

With asperger’s now falling under the category of autism in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM-V manual, it’s an intriguing article to say the least.

Sincerely-

Grocery shopping

So yesterday my oldest son and I went grocery shopping. Usually my daughter goes with me but I thought this time would be a good chance to take just him and talk a little bit about what we see, what we need and what he likes.

Unlike most times, this time I purchased a few things that he wanted, like things for his lunches at school and what he would like to have at home.  We also got the chance to just talk, without the interruption of his brother or sister. In other words, just good father and son time. Sometimes you just need that.

Boys to men

In the past few years more research has begun to be done on girls with autism and the apparent differences between the boys and girls. Now it appears there are differences even between boys and men.

This according to the article entitled “Study reveals subtle brain differences in men with autism” over at Medical Xpress and courtesy of Kings College London. So the next question undoubtedly will be, what are the differences between girls and women?
