Re: Schizophrenia / Asperger's Syndrome
my son was diagnosed with asberger's syndrome. As he got older, his symptoms became more severe. He was diagnosed last year with schizophrenia. It takes while to know, but there have to be positive symptoms for 6 months or more...delusional thinking, hallucinations of some kind, disorganized thinking, isolating and more. Asbergers has more to do with "quirky" behavior, perseverating on something, social problems, (inappropriate comments in conversations), etc. There are several good websites for AS. they should help clarify the difference.
