Angry autism or aspergers?

hello we have just got back from seeing cams paeditrition, at the last meeting he was diagnosed as being on the spectrum, we then had to wait 3 months them to collect info on him (strengths and weaknesses etc) now all they can tell us is that he is somewhere between autism and aspergers! he displays traits from both, also they made a big thing about him only doing things on his terms - speach therapy etc, now is this not normal for a 4 1/2 year old! i just dont know what to do! they seem to expect him to be the model child! is this normal or is he just being difficult?

Re: autism or aspergers?

I take it he had delayed speech? Which would indicate high functioning autism. Which is very similar to aspergers
in the long term.

Re: autism or aspergers?

HI TMI, yes his speech is delayed, my husband and i can understand him but others who don't spend as much time with him can struggle. i did think it might be high functioning autism as for us the only real problem at the mo is his speech, however we have learned to work round his other issues - resistance to change of routine etc., also he obsesses about wee toy people he can spend hours burying them up to their necks in his sand pit! (which is a bit off a worry!) also anything to do with power rangers can take him in to his own wee world!
