I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome in 2003. Since the I've been trying to work out exactly what that means for me. This blog will be the repository for anything useful or interesting that I discover in the course of my research. It is also very much a work in progress. I will also try to link to any interesting new developments or articles that come to my attention.

"Clinicians and those involved in education need to aware that there are children who do not have autism but who nevertheless have somewhat elevated levels of autistic traits - our research suggests that these children are at slightly greater risk of developing behavioural and emotional problems."
