Help! Suspect Aspergers in son

My son is 8 years old and lately I have thought that he displays a lot of warning signs of Aspergers. I won't go into details, but he has an appointment with his pediatrician today and he didn't rule it out.

He also noticed that my son has nystagmus (his eyes shake involuntarily when turned to the sides). He mentioned that this might be a part of it and wants my son to see a neurologist.

Can anyone share experiences of their children being diagnosed with Aspergers and if nystagmus was a part of it?

I am very worried.

Re: Help! Suspect Aspergers in son

My son was 7 yesterday and was also diagnosed with aspergers! Great birthday present!
I am reeling a bit from this news and still havent come to terms - hence the reason for seeking out this messaging board.
No eye problems however.

I have not seen this eye problem in the many people I know with Asperger's (including myself and my son.)

Re: Help! Suspect Aspergers in son

I work with kids with Aspergers and haven't noticed nystagmus. However, Asperger's is a neurological thing, and so perhaps it's related or it may just be two separate issues.

Kudos to you for realizing that your son may have Aspergers and seeking help.

What symptoms made you think he may have Aspergers?
