Wondering if anyone can help
. I know little of Aspergers/Autism but I have a friend who I suspect is maybe thus. If I list some symptoms , am wondering if anyone can agree that their behaviour is on the spectrum so we can point our friend in the right direction for help?
This male person always wears a hat apart from in work . They have a slight bounce to their gait. They like strong tastes such as marmite and coffee that is literally just thick paste with an inch of water . They are left handed and handwriting quite child like . They always have the same rather flat expression and tone . They tend to repeat phrases. They appear to have little emotional reaction to anything and talk always about themselves . There is no real empathy towards others . They are very awkward in social situations and avoid them as they say this makes them tense . They are anxious and on anti depressants. As a baby they were quite premature. They are interested in weird random subjects and cannot socialise properly . Very guarded . .Dislikes being touched . But maintains good eye contact . Disappears lunchtimes to stand on a corner watching people.
Does any of this collectively suggest aspergers? Intelligent and proficient in work . Tends to shut themselves in their room outside work with no girlfriend or real friends.canbe quite childish in manner and perculiarily old in others . Strange eating habits .. daddy eater . Change of work routine throws them off kilter . Tends to copy interests of others .
Any suggestions greatfully received thank you .
