I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

High-Functioning Autism


From WebMD


People with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome do not have the delayed language development that's typically found in people with autism.  In addition, people with high-functioning autism have average or above average intelligence.  However, they may show other behaviors and signs similar to what's seen with other types of autism:


delay in motor skills

lack of skill in interacting with others

little understanding of the abstract uses of language, such as humor or give-and-take in a conversation

obsessive interest in specific items or information

strong reactions to textures, smells, sounds, sights, or other stimuli that others might not even notice, such as a flickering light


Unlike people with other forms of autism, people with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome want to be involved with others.  They simply don't know how to go about it.  They may not be able to understand others' emotions.  They may not read facial expressions or body language well.
