    Autism and its milder form Asperger Syndrome, often referred to together as autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) are conditions which make it hard for sufferers to communicate or interact with others, or to develop what most people would consider 'normal'… Read more →

    My son who is 13 years old has been having behavioural, social, communication problems since the age of 2. He has violent outbursts with no provication which can last for 3 hours. 2 weeks ago he had a break down and told his mum that he was and had been hearing voices telling him to break things. He is waiting for an evaluation but i was just wondering if he is diagnosed as being Schizophrenic how effective will any treatment be for someone his age.

    I have not been in this situation myself but it sounds like you need to take your daughter to your local GP and see what they say. Mood swings happen quite often for girls that have only had there periods for 1-2 years, usually its just emotions going up and down, but if it starts to get worse then you definitely need to take your daughter to your local GP and see what they say.

    My daughter is now 3 and a half. She suffered with her first bout of tonsillitis in january and her tonsils have been swollen ever since. She has needed antibiotics 4 more times but has had viral tonsillitis every few weeks also. She is now suffering with sleep apnoe and swallowing difficulties sometimes coughing and even vomiting when eating. She was referred to the specialist but they say they will not see her as still not severe enough. Don't know what else i can do?

    My son used to sleep walk a lot as a child, gradually, as time has gone on, these episodes have been replaced with night terrors. They started around age 4 as a mixture of both sleep walking and nightmares. He also has a diagnosis of severe specific learning difficulties, b-lateral co-ordination difficulties and Aspergers. He's 16 now and nearly every night is a battle for him. When he has a terror he rarely remembers it, but he is always aware in the morning that he's had a bad night. He frequently wakes his siblings who share a room with him or his parents when he wanders around the house during a terror. His terrors have increased to almost daily with his change from secondary to further education and he's exhausted most of the time. On a chance visit to an osteopath to help him with back pains we discovered she specialized in sleep disorders with Aspergers suffers. (Her brother also suffers from Aspergers.) The duration of his attacks has lessened greatly since shes been treating him,(weekly) but have not completely gone. He's been prescribed Melatonin, but he doesn't like taking it. The terrors worry him greatly and are a constant disturbance for his sleep and those of the household however his social communication difficulties make it very difficult for him to talk at any length about things that worry him. However, his descriptions so far of what he sees and experiences are harrowing and he describes his night times as torturous. Hes clearly troubled and desperate for some respite from it all. Any suggestions you have or experiences of being able to calm and allay the fears of a child with similar learning difficulties would be greatly appreciated.

    My daughter has been diagnosed with ADHD and moderate learrning difficulties. She also has problems with her balance, coordnation for which she attends OT and physio. She also attends S&L as she would have delays there also. I have done the test with all her difficulties in mindand the score came out at 41. I do believe that she has further problems and because she finds social situations exteremely difficult. What should I do???

    Does your daughter have Sensory Intergration? My son does with ADHD,Bi-polar,Autism,and other mood disorders.

    I am not aware that she does. Have been finding it really hard to take things to the next stage. What is sensory intergretion???

    Thank you for raising awareness of coordination difficulties. I am only disappointed that you chose to use the term dyspraxia to cover such a broad range of difficulties. It would have been much more helpful to have used the term Developmental Coordination Disorder, which describes coordination difficulties more broadly. Dyspraxia is a specific coordination difficulty and unfortunately the term is already over-used. Parents can be misled by information available relating to dyspraxia, which might not apply to their child. This is a persistent problem we experience as paediatric occupational therapists and physiotherapists have to explain to parents that 'dyspraxia' might not apply to their child. The show could have asked some physiotherapists or occupational therapists to advise on this subject.

    Hi I was born with a clubfoot too on my left foot.my left leg is also an 1" shorter and my foot 2 sizes smaller. I am now 61 and I have been able to walk, run, play sports etc. My clubfoot rarely hurts but can do if I excessively walk or play sports. I accepted that God makes everyone different and special so it was easy for me to move on and do my best in life.

    I have had chronic urticaria for a good 9 months now, I am 19 years old and feel like its taking over my life. I get it everywhere on my body, and the tablets I have been prescribed do what they're supposed to but I feel I need something stronger as they only relieve symptoms for about 2 hours at most. For the past 3/4 months I have had breathing difficulties that come randomly, and for a while I thought it was a chest infection but I am now adamant it is to do with my hives. It is a horrible condition to have and my self esteem is at it's lowest! However, visiting my doctor I don't think has helped me much so far, but now having reoccurring breathing difficulties I feel it's a must. If anyone has any advice please help me, would be much appreciated!

    Hi Kirsty, Just recently i have been getting small rashes, hives pretty much on my body but sporadic...it could last a few minutes then go away...i will be going to a doctor soon but the reason i am writing to you is that i believe you will be able to recover...be careful with the side affects of medicine...it can really play with your emotions...i pray that you get better and that your self esteem picks up!! Keep your head up ok!! God bless

    Hello Kirsty I would say u should ask your doctor to refer u to see a dermatologist and prescribe u with a epi pen as if your finding it hard to breath u would need this!! I'm not sure how serious your swelling/ hives are but I know when my face swells up and I'm finding it hard to breath I would use my epi pen as a last resort but I've been to a&e and been told to just take a large dose of my prednisolone ( steroids) which has both times worked, before using the epi pen. Hope this helps a little Hun x

    Why is there nothing said about the symptoms of the brilliance of autistic people? We are not ILL. We have difficulties in certain things depending on the level of autism, but we are high funtioning, obsessive individuals! There are no 2 people with aspergers exactly the same though there are similar traits in some things. It is not an illness at all. We just function differently to 'the norm' if there is ever a thing. I have aspergers syndrome, i have recently been diagnosed. I am an 18 year old girl from shropshire and the education system has let me down as there are too many people in education who are ignorant to difficulties other than dyslexia and discalculia.

    i feel very strongly about the way schools handle asd there are many children showing signs of this type of autism and unfortunately no-one seems to have the time to give any understanding to these individuals, if they did their lives would be a lot easier and happier. my son was badly let down too by teachers but has gone on to gain full time work and has his own car. you are right! your the same as everyone else only you find it harder to cope with all the things going on around you. well done for giving such a positive point of veiw.

    Actually, I'll make you wrong. I was diagnosed with Asperger's, despite having scored well in the communication, eye contact etc area. Go figure.

    No, it's not bad, but I have to question how you know this. Is this something he discussed with you? (Which would be a good thing, demonstrating that your lines of communication are open.) Or did you measure his erection yourself? (In which case, I would find this highly inappropriate.)

    use pictures or photos to let her communicate back to you,look up pecs (picture exchange communication)it has helped my daughter alot, she also has autism and is 6.Also have a look on the national autistic society web site.

    Hi my name is Ana I'm 22 years old and I think I may have ASD. I always had problems with communication has a child and I also have dislexia.I never had friends and I have problems communicating with other people I'm having counsiling for the past one year and a half but it's not helping. I'm too embarrassed to go and see my GP please help me.

    Hey, how did you go about getting your reduction? And what were the difficulties for you relating to surgery?? x

    While I applaud this exercise to improve the visibility and perhaps understanding of the Autistic Spectrum it is clear looking at a few of these replies that it may cause some consternation in individuals who take the test. To many, Autism suggests isolation, behavioural and learning difficulties; while this is certainly true in some cases, perhaps the largest proportion of those who could register on the spectrum don't even know it and would be very surprised, perhaps shocked. This straw poll suggests that over 50% register (at the point of writing this) and this does not surprise me at all; in fact it is my belief that without this complex series of neurological differences we would not have scientists, engineers, mathematicians and may of the creative geniuses we have seen throughout the ages. Readers who do score and are worried, don't be; celebrate your difference and for the most part be grateful of it. Of course there are those unfortunate ones who find their differences are so misunderstood they suffer for it - generally, the difficulties that they encounter are the fault of those around them. And to those than "suspect" they "have it", welcome aboard - tell your parents and siblings, they will almost certainly "have it" too!

    Very well said Gary. However it may also help some parents in very confusing and sometimes exsasperating situations understand how to treat and help there children with a little medical knowledge. But I totally agree that being a unique individual is a bonous. Sorry for spelling mistakes!! Amanda

    maybe you need to change boyfriends... if you were with someone you were comfertable with then you could relax more. maybe you need more foreplay and focus on you. sex isn't everything. you and your boyfriend should practice telling eachother what you want, show him where you want to be touched and where you don't. sounds like a mental thing to me, especially if you claim you did not have these issues with your ex. communication is the key with any partner. good luck dawn.

    Hi Lauren. I have been in talks with gp's and dermatologists since I was 10(15 years ago) I had the ame as you and decided to have surgery but I would not recommend this as it has caused me to suffer with compensatory sweating which is from head to toe but not my hands anymore, take a look at www.hyperhidrosis.org and try have a lot of information and great communication, they will direct you in the right direction and maybe ask your GP to refer you to a dermatologist. Hope this helps a little

    You are born with autism. It's in my case people around me notice you being different to them. Do you have trouble making friends and communication? There can be loads of signs. I just wish it was made more known to people. If you do have it, go to your GP, if they think you are an aspie they will referr you and then a specialist will meet and do some tests. They are vague and it is a long winded process...

    there are a few therapies which could be helpful. its basically about dealing with the problems caused by your aspergers rather than the actual aspergers itself. things like communication, dealing with changes to your routine stuff like that - theres no cure or anything but it can make life a lot easier.

    Hi I am 24 years old, and still wetting and soiling myself lie a two year old. I have to wear Adult all in one incontinence briefs it is really embarrassing. The worst part is I have Learning difficulties one of which effects my hand eye co-ordination. I can't change my own pads, I have to be changed like some kind of man baby. I tried changing myself once, I ended up with feces all over my arms and cloths. Apparently I had left half of it behind according to my mum. It stinks literally and in the other way (I have Aspergers Syndrome so I sometimes have problems with communication saying what I mean to say in the right way). It is humiliating going out in public walking down the road (I have Epilepsy as well so I cant drive) and over hearing people talking about you and laughing knowing they are pointing at you. It would be better if I were a baby ! Babies have been in diapers all there lives they consider it normal and every one thinks they are cute. Then they are potty trained and every one thinks they are normal, but if a child fails potty training, puff their life is bullies teasing and considered abnormal, severely disabled, mentally handicapped or perverted. Unfortunately because of my Aspergers Syndrome and the social implications I inherited the last two. Mentally handicapped and Perverted, thats what everyone calls me, and just because I have an obsession with keeping things tidy. People see me going round picking up other peoples litter of the streets and putting it in recycling bins, whats wrong with trying to clean up the world and lower fossil fuel consumption be reusing things ? Nothing Im sorry I just looked at the scroll bar in this text box and I am doing it again writing an essay for a simple comment that really only needs 70 words or so. Well thats my story. And to all of you out there with an incontinence problem, Stay Fresh Clean and Dry TTFN

    My daughter is 13 and has an enlarged labia. I have looked at labiaplasty and wondered if there is a minimum age that this can be performed? Also as it causes her severe emotional difficulties would she be able to get help from nhs? Thanks
