So as the title says, this is another newbie thread. I’m Anthony and it’s looking increasingly likely that I am on the spectrum. I’m working with a specialist at the moment and all the screening tools are pointing towards an aspergersesque outcome. It’s been a long journey getting thus far. I just wish it came sooner because it’s been quite damaging for me.
My traits have been problematic, especially on the social front - I pretty much redefine the term ‘socially awkward’... To be honest it’s quite a big step me posting on here!
I don’t really know what else I can say... other than I’m not showing symptoms of covid-19, so this post isn’t contagious. So feel free to ask questions... I’m better at answering questions than I am trying to work out what to write!
TaRa: There are screening tools such as questionnaires and tasks which can be scored and collated to help a diognostican understand your traits in a quantifiable manner. These include the AQ, EQ, developmental history, social communication questionnaire etc.
You are very welcome :)
