5 ASPERGER Symptoms you NEED to know


in this video we’re going to be covering
five Asperger’s symptoms and traits so that by the end of this video you’ll
be able to identify autism and Asperger’s and people relatively quickly
coming right up hey guys welcome back to the aspie world
I’m done I have Asperger’s syndrome ADHD OCD and dyslexia I make weekly videos

content in this video we’ll cover behaviour traits that you may not realize
that our Asperger’s symptoms I hope everyone’s doing well and you fingers
haven’t frozen off because of the cold weather I know I’m looking forward to a
lovely break over Christmas time out off my book tour and book signings and all
that stuff that’s gonna be kind of cool all links for my book will be in the
description below if you’re interested ok so first I’m gonna really comment
from my youtube comments from one of you guys and this comment is from Harry
Potter and they said is a 14 a late our early diagnosis and I would say that
being diagnosed with Asperger’s of 14 is kind of quite an early diagnosis ok
not as early as like you know like 6 or 7 years old but it’s still not really a
late diagnosis like in your 30s or 20s so you know I think I would say it’s
pretty it’s really nearly diagnosis if you’d like we treated out your comment
make sure you hit that Bell icon and desktop on mobile because I’ll be
picking from the first 30 commenters to read one of those out the beginning of
every single video okay guys on with the video okay five Asperger’s symptoms here
we go number one is stimming now stimming is a repetitive notion that people do
sometimes with their hands or their fingers or they rock back and forwards
and this is kind of like a self of soothing thing so that it’s it’s a
repetitive rhythm that people do to count down in like anxious and stressful
situations and that this is very very common people with Asperger syndrome
number two is hypersensitivity now hypersensitivity is quite interesting
because you could be hyper or hypo sensitive with autism and Asperger’s it
means that a lot of people are hyper sensitive so that they they don’t like
light so that they can see the fluorescent flicker from fluorescent
lights sometimes lights are over exposing an overpowering for people so
it’s really annoying and frustrating causes a lot of frustration again a lot
too sensitive to sound so you might see a lot of people in the hands over their
ears like this this is so that they can block out the sound because they may be
hypersensitive to sound so the sounds louder than what you may perceive it to
be with the person with the condition is actually hearing the sound really really
another one is taste in textures within the hypersensitivity so you may like not
like certain textures like runny texstures like condiments and gravies and things
like that and this could cause a lot of upset in people with Asperger syndrome
so if they don’t like the texture could really put them off their entire food
come off anything and then it can just escalate into a very big episode of
uncomfortableness number three zoning out now zoning out was quite interesting
a lot of people say that zoning out there refer to people with Asperger’s
syndrome or autism as people who live in their own world which is kind of not
really true as quite derogative when you use that term but was owning out is when
the person with autism or Asperger’s will fixate on something and they’ll get
super intensely into that thing so they’ll zone out because they’re they’re
concentrating on maybe a wheel of a car or it could be anything any small detail
that they may pick up on and they’ll Zone in to it just to kind of really
embrace and look at it you know but then a lot of people would say that their
zoning out all that daydreaming because they’re not answering to verbal stimuli
or anything like that and it’s just a factor in the matter so yeah you could
have somebody who’s just like drifting off into space and they’re looking at
something staring at something and then you you know you’re trying to talk some
of they’re not replying this is a form of like zoning out okay number four is a
repetitive behavior now this is quite interesting people with Asperger’s
syndrome have a repetitive behavior which is different to OCD so repetitive
behavior would be someone who has to do something in a routine so every single
day they have to get up the same way they have to do the same thing every
single day they’ll probably eat the same foods very often all the same food every
single day they’ll like to watch the same programs all the time they’ll like
to you know read the same books all over again they may want to walk to town the
same way they may want to just everything like they like the pattern
that everything a repetitive pattern of stuff so if you find somebody that is
very much stuck in this repetitive pattern this could be the reason why and
repetitive patterns for people with Asperger’s syndrome give them a sense of
comfort and relatability so they can relate to the fact that they are doing
those things and it’s comfortable and it’s familiar because again
unpredictability is a causing factor for anxiety and and can scare people with
Asperger’s syndrome and autism so this is why repetitive behaviour doesn’t have
any ambiguity on it you know it’s it’s welcoming you know
exactly what’s gonna happen and therefore it’s safe it’s good it’s it’s
not anxious okay so number five is poor social skills now social skills are
something that people pick up on throughout their lives and they learn
this as they grow as they become friends or people in school and become around
more social situations unfortunately because it’s part of a
communication section of the brain people with autism and Asperger’s it
doesn’t really mend that well for them and it doesn’t really create those
opportunities to learn those outcomes so somebody with Asperger’s syndrome
probably wouldn’t be very good at making what they call small talk so they
wouldn’t be good at knowing when it’s their turn to talk in a group of the
group people talking you know they they wouldn’t know when to wait their turn I
want to stop talking sometimes people Asperger’s Syndrome we’ll just talk
about their topic consistently for hours and hours until someone says hey you
know you need to stop because it’s not knowing those boundaries of where to
stop people with autism or Asperger’s syndrome also would be we may not have a
filter so I know that I say things that may seem like hash or rude but or crude
but it’s not supposed to be you know it was just trying to it’s trying to figure
out where that feels where that boundary is or that social boundary I guess but
these are things you’re supposed to consciously kind of pick up just do
learning but it’s difficult people authors and Asperger’s so somebody who’s
really bad at making small talk or can’t really communicate that well again this
could be another Asperger’s or autism trait I’m gonna give you guys a bonus
one here so this is number six so this is kind of not within the main one but I
thought would be really cool to just check in here is alone as well for you
guys because you’re watching this video you give me the time super awesome so
number six is gonna be social anxiety not social anxiety is something that
hits people with autism Asperger’s and also is a huge Asperger’s symptoms
because people with autism have a huge issue with social interactions and
social anxiety and a whole and it causes big anxiety cuz you got to go out to the
world you gota’ go out and like talk to loads of people it’s overwhelming the crowds
the noise the smells everything is just crazy so being really socially anxious
is almost like a byproduct of having autism or Asperger’s syndrome so if
somebody is suffering from like social anxiety they have a bunch of these other
issues like through communication skills or like the don’t make eye contact or
whatever these things can be led to Asperger’s symptoms or could be
symptoms of Asperger’s Syndrome or Autism and I would say that if you find like
three to five Asperger’s symptoms in your persons you know behavior patterns
or the person you’re looking at other cousin you know the paper problems I
would say that maybe it’ll be good idea for you to say to them that you know
they should go and seek a diagnosis because or see some professional help
because and maybe some help available for that person to make their life a
little bit more easier if you’d like to learn more about autism and Asperger’s
