You all know about Steve Jobs, Daryl Hannah, Susan Boyle, Courtney Love, Woody Allen, Bill Gates or Elon Musk, but you don’t know that they all, apart from being famous and very rich, have something else in common — Asperger’s Syndrome, one of the disorders. from the autism spectrum.
Asperger’s syndrome symptoms are problems with communication and social behavior. This data already suggests that these people, have that.
What exactly is it about?
Asperger’s syndrome symptoms are (AS) not a disease but, as psychiatry specialist Julia Richertson explains for the Viralstorm portal, a disorder that describes the different functioning of those who have it in relation to the rest of the population, and is therefore called neuroatypical. It occurs in people with normal or high intelligence and those people often have incredible power to focus on details, they are persistent, organized, consistent, respect the rules, which makes them reliable and responsible.
“Asperger’s syndrome is a pervasive (reflected in all segments of life), developmental disorders characterized by impaired social interactions, scarce, stereotypical, repetitive repertoires of interests and activities. AS is a disorder that occurs during the developmental period, and is most often diagnosed at an early age. The classification of the disease puts it in the autistic spectrum of disorders. People with AS see, hear and feel the world differently, “says Julia Richertson.
It is believed that Asperger’s syndrome symptoms has a strong genetic basis, which has not yet been defined, but also that external factors have an impact.
They do not make eye contact
AS is characterized by a lack of social skills, a narrow circle of interests, repetitive patterns of behavior, peculiarities of speech and language, problems of nonverbal communication, and motor awkwardness. In order to be diagnosed with AS, it is necessary, as our interlocutor claims, that the child has normal cognitive development as well as the development of language skills.
“At an early age, it is noticed that they do not make eye contact, behave strangely in social situations, do not recognize ‘body language and facial expressions, which makes it difficult for them to understand other people’s feelings and intentions to ‘read people’, have trouble expressing emotions, although they may be more emotional and empathetic than other people. “
“Speech often has a lack of intonation and poor speech modulation (speaking like robots), speech can be significantly louder, faster, in the form of extensive monologues without the involvement of interlocutors. They tend to repeat movements, are often clumsy, have poor coordination and can express They have an unusual response to sensory stimuli (sound, light, touch, taste), very often show hypersensitivity, which is accompanied by avoidant behavior and anxiety. They do not like changes, unexpected situations, they lack spontaneity. They tend to be limited and repetitive patterns of behavior, activities, and interests. “
It does not heal
According to Richardson, who has a long experience in working with AS in adults, this disorder is not treatable — psychiatric disorders are treated in people with AS that can develop due to excessive stress and weak defense mechanisms. Then people may have symptoms of anxiety, depression and/or psychosis, which cause them to see a psychiatrist.
“People with AS can improve their quality of life by improving social skills, speech, motor skills through social skills training, physical exercise, psychotherapy, working with a speech therapist, physiotherapist, and psychologist. A pediatric neurologist and pediatrician are involved at an early age.”
