Is there any chance I could have very mild autism or is it just my personality?
Hey, I'm 15 and I've been wondering this for quite some time now, basically, these are the things I've noticed that are similar between me and the symptoms of autism 1. I seem to pick up patterns very very easily, and this is easily noticed by people, I'm clever talented in quite a lot of things, especially musically. the last part was just added info and I'm not being big headed by the way 2. I can't make eye contact at all, this might be because I'm a male, I've heard that males have eye contact trouble, but I feel that I'm a lot worse than most people3. I don't show sympathy or any negative feelings at all most of the time, I haven't cried in 5 years, and whenever something happens in a case when most people would start to show sympathy , I generally just become very uncomfortable.4. I'm an introvert, I took a personality test recently and that's how I know, as a child I used to be perfectly happy with my own company and even now I spend most of my time in my head.5. This isn't a similarity, more of the opposite Most of the autistic people I know get very violent... Which I'm not, I'm probably the biggest pacifist you'll ever meet.There's probably a few more but I think I'll just leave it at that, I don't want to bring this up with anyone cause I don't want to stir anything with no evidence.Do you think I should ask someone professional or am I just being stupid? pcheers
Can my son get ssi for mild autism amd adhd?
He is three and does not talk at all. He is on risperdol and ritalin twice a day. He had an IEP and was ordered to go to special ed and 60 minutes of outside speech and occupational therapy. I applied for ssi but everyone tells me I will be denied. I work but only make 30k a year, but am hoping to drop to part time to focus more on my son. Does anyone have any insight?

I think I may have mild autism or ADHD....?
I'm a 20 years old girl I check the symptoms of both Autism and ADHD and I have most of them. I never may that many friends, in fact I only had one real friend in only 3 and 4 grade. I have trouble concentrating and often get stuck in my own world in my head. I did have trouble learning when I was younger but i somewhat got past it. Until this day I have most of the symptoms. Is there something something wrong with me, or I'm I just like that in natural. Thanks...
I think I may have mild autism?
Okay I ll try keep this as short as possible, but I am looking for some advice..I think I may have mild autism, I was watching embarrassing bodies and the chap said take the online autism test and I scored 20 over all my friends who also took it, my result registered mild autism then I was a bit shocked as I didn t really know what autism, I still don't to be honest, just upon researching I can relate to a lot of the symptoms. I find socializing with people quite difficult, I often feel awkward around people, whether I ve only just met them or known them years, especially when in smaller groups. I have lots of friends and generally it s fine, but it s when say we re not walking through a mall, or at a concert, we re sat face to face having lunch, or in a situation where were not preoccupied by something else and the only thing we re doing is communicating, if that makes sense? I do find it hard to look them in the eyes and I have no idea why, lately I ve started to notice how much I subliminally attempt to deter from this, for example, looking at my phone screen whilst chatting, looking away and making a comment about someone passing..etc. Especially at tutorials at university, 1 on 1 with my lecturers, I just don t know how to react in these situations. I find conversation hard to engage in sometimes, when in larger groups it s somewhat easier, as I can passively listen and the main emphasis isn t on myself, I can just speak up accordingly and then carry on happily not engaging in conversation. Recently, I ve started to look into social anxiety as part of a university project, and also relate to many of these symptoms. Which is weird, because I go out ALOT, it s only now I ve started really thinking and looking into things I think something may be up. When I m walking the street I often feel awkward, like people are watching me. I don t know why, I highly doubt they are and have no idea whatsoever why I feel like this, I often feel awkward with my hands whilst walking, I usually have to have something in them to avoid feeling awkward, which sounds strange typing this out. I get intimidated extremely easy, especially around new people or at large gatherings which leaves me feeling quite insecure. Sometimes when I m out, socially, I feel inferior and afraid to fully let go and by myself, no matter how well I know these people or how close of friends we are, like there are some kind of inhibitions holding me back from having a good time. If we re going out somewhere, or to a party, I need to know specific times, exactly whos going to be there, what it s going to be like...etc I ve always put this down to the OCD I self diagnosed myself with years ago, but maybe it s something more? I have to have things a specific way, do things a certain way, live by specific times and routines, when these aren t in place I do feel distress. I could go on and on about my problems but i ll shut up and get to the conclusion of asking is this normal? I m 19, is this part of being a teenager and growing up or should I take it further? I ve always thought about seeing my doctor about my OCD tenancies, but I feel is there even anything he could do about it? I just feel I d be wasting his time and I fear the social situation of sitting there alone with him whilst blabbing on about my problems as this would be too unbearably uncomfortable as I m guessing you ve figured by now I hate chatting face to face, especially about myself, I usually just look down and nod and hmm and speak as small sentences as possible. Sitting down alone at my pc desk and typing it would be so much easier, like now, I have time to think and don t have someone staring at me waiting for a reply. But a doctor can t make a diagnosis from an email can he. I ve asked my mum, but she says there s nothing wrong with me, to her I m happy and social and go out all the time with my friends and have a great time, but she doesn t know all of this or how I actually feel when I m out, to her I m just normal.

I have mild Autism and until just now, I learned something.?
When I was born my mum knew I had a problem with me and never gave up seeking help for me. I had mild Autism and a speech problem, when I was about 5 I learned how to speak through my 3 year old sister.When I found out I had a disability in 2006 it kind of crushed me and I had minor depressions since then thinking I'd never be normal. Only recently this year have I ignored all that but when people see me now... They could never guess that I had a disability. I learned to not be so shy anymore, to speak better, improve on my comprehending, it was mainly due to the fact that I wanted to be normal so badly.Now that I read up on Yahoo answers about other people around my Age with mild Autism... I can see how Lucky I am, I could've been like them, but I'm not. I actually got to change.I'm a 17 year old BuddhistI do Martial ArtsI have lots of friendsI go to Youth GroupThe doctor when he sees me now says it's almost like I don't have Mild Autism, because it's very unnoticeable now. I just think that maybe... I don't have it so bad. I can speak correctly and best of all, it's very hard to spot that I have mild Autism...The questions I read involved these mild autism kids to be too shy, obsessive, easily hurt, sensitive, not being able to comprehend, throwing tantrums Yes, I am talking about the kids aged 15 18 .I don't do any of the above like I use to, was I raised right? Just felt I had to add a question at the end, lol
