Psychcentral.com: Finding Differences in Brain Connectivity May Aid in Autism Diagnosis

New research looks at distinctive differences in brain connectivity that may underlie autism spectrum disorders (ASD) — and possibly provide much-needed biomarkers to aid in identifying the disorder.

Blog:Aspie.com- Autism and Suicide Crisis Support

Autistic populations typically present atypical behaviors when faced with a crisis. The behaviors may be attributed to a host of assumptions that leave the struggling person anywhere from ignored, to misunderstood, to in a life-threatening crisis mode. The suicide ideation rates are extremely high among autistics and the actual numbers of autistic persons who were lost to suicide is at best, a guess given so many people remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

Video:The Aspie World- LIVING With AUTISM – How To ADHD Interview: (Real Life Experience)

Video:The Aspie World- LIVING With AUTISM – How To ADHD Interview: (Real Life Experience)

Living with autism may be difficult for people, here I discuss my personal story of growing up and living with autism in my life experience from an interview with Jess from How To ADHD.

How To ADHD: http://bit.ly/2HE4T0R

Living with autism can be a struggle and also manageable if you know how. I try my best every day to make living with autism not a struggle for me because I want to improve all the time.

I am sharing in this video what it is like living with autism from my perspective, not a BBC documentary or a short film, but a real life sit down conversation about living with autism and having an autism spectrum disorder.

Lots of people want to know what it’s like to live with autism, and what does autism look like. Well to be honest it is just like anyone else, living with autism is different to that of a neurotypical person but it is just as diverse as any other condition in the world.

I find that autism and Aspergers Syndrome are superpowers and thus can be empowering. I talk about these “autism symptoms” in this interview and how they impact living with autism.

So what is life like for autistic people and people on the autism spectrum as a whole? It is simple, everyone is individual and that is no exception for autism. Like you have heard before, if you have met one person with autism you have only met one person with autism.

People are so diverse with their needs, that every experience of living with autism is different for everyone.

So for me and my experience this is real life for me and this is what living with autism is to me. Please share this video if you think that it could benefit the life of an autistic person.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO:

ABOUT ME:
Helping people understand Autism from a person with Autism’s perspective.

Hey from the Aspie World and a big welcome into my life! I am a Dan from the UK and I have Aspergers Syndrome or ASD which is a form of Autism, often referred to as High Functioning Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder. I make videos every week on my journey and offer tips and tricks to help everyone who has Autism.

I also have help videos for helping people get a diagnosis of Autism or Aspergers Syndrome, and also some advise and help for anyone who is friends, partners or loved ones who suffer from Autism or Aspergers Syndrome and just about anyone on the Autism Spectrum.
