I am pretty sure I have known or know four girls who likely had it (but two are paired with other disorders) and they have been quite involved in my life. I also know that I have seen many guys with it now that I am in college and I knew two people in my gym class (where there were always the worst people including one of these guys). And there was this artist guy who drew really detailed art, but it was far too blase for me. And there was this guy who had it who I dare say was the ugliest person in the world (and he's not fat cause I don't think fat is usually ugly). Yeah, I am being judgmental about these people, but I knew also only by judgement in most cases (especially girls who are never really diagnosed). I find it unfortunate that a lot of these men are so disagreeable with me since I feel it is a really hard thing to grow up with AS.
My own ten years old son has high functioning autism. I love him as he is, even tho it can be challenging at times.
Yeah, a manager where I work has Asperger's.

That's good to hear. If the daughter has a problem with human expression there is a children's program called 'the transporters' it was designed by psychologist Baron-Cohen especially for autistic children
