Re: what exactly is aspergers??

Search in internet. I think he does not like to talk to much about it as it is no funny subject. But all Aspergers are different from another. Everyone is different...

But a friend's son did not like to eat healthy food. He wanted the same, mostly bought prepared food during all these years. So he did not get very good nutrition every day. A period the was willing to take omega3-capsules but in the puberty he got stubborn and refused to continue with them, unfortunately.

If one stops a habit, it can be difficult to restart it again. Or if you eat too much and often of something one gets tired of it, like everybody else.

Re: what exactly is aspergers??

Aspergers is considered the highest form of autism. The most common symptoms are not being able to socializes the way other people do, they don't read facial ques properly, they are often single minded in the their interests and what they discuss with people, they are often very intelligent,however, have trouble following instructions.They also seem to suffer from anxiety, and sensory issues. At least that's what I see with my son.

Hope this helps

Re: what exactly is aspergers??

Hi there, as far as i know in resaerching autism/aspergers whilst waiting for my sons diagnosis, aspergers syndrome is on the autistic spectrum but with a main focus of having social and emotional problems, not bieng able to understand others easily and getting frustrated, however on the plus side IQ levels are normally high , if you are looking to find out more a good book ive read is:- THE ASPERGERS ANSWER BOOK , SUSAN ASHLEY, PH.D., i bought this on ebay x
