Asperger's: A Study on Empathy - NCLD

Asperger's: A Study on Empathy - NCLD | Learning Difficulties | Scoop.it

As someone with Asperger’s, I have noticed that, now, when I mention to people that I have Asperger’s, they tend to ask questions such as, “Are you Rain Man?” and “Do you have emotions?” 

I’d like to offer a different perspective on what it means to have Asperger’s (slated to be placed under the umbrella of “Autism Spectrum Disorder” in the newest edition of the DSM). Despite all the grief that it has given me, it has been a positive part of my life. One characteristic of Asperger’s Syndrome is “limited empathy.” Apparently, I’m supposed to have a hard time understanding the needs and emotions of others. I feel that my experience has been contrary to that idea; Asperger’s has made me a kinder and more caring person who understands what it means to struggle and wants to make life easier for others
