Hello and please know we do have another member here in the forum that has this disorder and hopefully he will see your post. I have a granddaughter that has had this disorder since she was very young so I understand a bit about the problems that go with Aspergers.
Asperger's syndrome is a neurobiological disorder considered to be part of the autism spectrum. The exact cause of the condition is unknown, although many experts believe there is a hereditary component. Asperger's syndrome can affect people of all races and socioeconomic backgrounds, although it is three to four times more common among men.
People with Asperger’s syndrome may show symptoms throughout their entire lives, but most are not diagnosed until adulthood. People with Asperger’s syndrome were often bullied as children or mocked for their highly unusual interests. However, since many children experience these difficulties, the extent of the problem is seldom recognized until much later.
Essentially, Asperger's syndrome causes behavior that can best be described as “quirky.” Bill Gates, Woody Allen, Bob Dylan, Keanu Reeves, Al Gore, and Garrison Keillor are some of the many notable public figures who experts believe show symptoms of Asperger's syndrome. There is also some evidence to suggest that Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton suffered from the condition as well.
There is no cure for Asperger's syndrome, but cognitive behavioral therapy, as shared by SC, is a help to many people with Aspergers.
I agree with looking at getting a second opinion and a definitive dx.
