aspergers syndrome behavior

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Adolescents with aspergers syndrome have a variety of symptoms and behaviors not unlike those of an autistic teen. Adolescent aspergers syndrome behavior can be frustrating for parents to understand and manage. 

 

As with autism, an adolescent with asperger syndrome can misinterpret situations, and will lack the social skills of their normally developing peers.

 

They will lack the ability to “mind read”, or read facial and body language, which may lead to social mistakes and social isolation.

 

Aspergers syndrome behavior can lead to social pressure, the misinterpretation of others thoughts, feelings and values can at times lead to frustrations, anxieties and cause social difficulties.

 

Aspergers syndrome behavior, is a result of this anxiety and stress. Just because your child has aspergers, this does not make them exempt from becoming a teenager and everything that it entails.

 

With increasing hormonal, physical and emotional changes in their own bodies the asperger adolescent can easily become unpredictable and increasingly more and more confused and stressed.

 

An individual with aspergers syndrome does not look any different from other teenagers of the same age.

 

However an adolescent with aspergers syndrome behavior will have different behaviors and communication issues. To a normally developing teenager this asperger Syndrome behavior may look odd, and prevent them from striking up or keeping friendships.

 

An adolescent with aspergers syndrome can be socially isolated and lack the ability to fit into their peer groups. They may appear insensitive and act inappropriately in public.

 

What was once acceptable as a child may now be frowned upon within their own peer group.

 

Parents of aspergers adolescents may find this stage in their child’s life the most difficult to cope with. Watching your child grow and develop into adulthood has its pressures, but when you teenager has aspergers syndrome the pitfalls can be immense.

 

Each asperger adolescent is different no two people are the same therefore the amount of support will vary from individual to individual.

Research has proven that aspergers behavior can be managed and helped, with asperger social skills stories

Asperger social skills stories are used effectively as a tool to help teach, re-enforce, control and manage asperger behavior issues and problems.

Asperger behavior is a complex set of social and communication difficulties, research suggests asperger social skills stories are a useful resource used effectively in adolescents with autism and aspergers.

Mixed State Bipolar Aspergers

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

Bipolar disorder’s mixed state and Asperger’s syndrome disorder are quite often confused. However, they are not the same, although some symptoms and characteristics are similar.

Children with mixed state bipolar and aspergers are different in certain areas.

Where as the asperger child will lack any interest in friendships, the mixed state bipolar child will show an interest in peer friendships, but their impulsive aggressive outbursts can make friendships difficult.

Bipolar disorder is a comorbid condition, which is rarely present in people with aspergers.

However that said, mixed state bipolar can sometimes be found in aspergers, which makes the condition of the child or asperger person mixed state bipolar even more complicated.

It does not follow that all individuals with asperger may also develop bipolar mixed disorder, nor vice versa, but the mixed state can sometimes occur. Mixed state bipolar is the most dangerous stage of the bipolar disorder and in combination with aspergers syndrome it becomes even more dangerous. What is Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is also known as manic depression. It affects approximately 1.5% of the population. With this disorder, a person has periodic mood swings which they travel from depression to mania.

 

With mixed state bipolar the two states are present at the same time, i.e. the depression and mania. The person will show signs of agitation, insomnia, changes in appetite, psychosis, hallucinations, suicidal tendencies and thinking, depression and mania.

 

Following routines especially at bed time can help, and alleviate some of the stresses. Also completing tasks and only setting small manageable tasks can reduce anxieties.

 

For the asperger child, and possibly the bipolar child a useful resource is social skills stories, which can provide structure and routine to daily tasks and activities taking away the stresses.

 

The social skills story will allow the child to follow a set routine therefore removing any changes that can cause stress, panic or agitation.
