Sample text

Parents may have to wash, dry and iron the clothes during the night and then try to wrinkle them and keep them in the kitchen while frying something so that they will look and smell as though they had been used for a long time. Others are virtual snobs, and constantly demand new clothes. Some even change their clothes and shoes several times a day. There are often major problems with school work. The teenager with Asperger syndrome sometimes does not realise the importance of good performance at school and feels that the teachers are to blame if they cannot get their pupils enthusiastic enough to do their best.

There is a clear need for more research when it comes to the relationship between autism spectrum disorders and conduct problems both in children/adolescents and adults. ODD is a common associated diagnosis in ADHD (and DAMP). It is very likely that had a diagnosis of ODD been considered in cases with autism spectrum disorders, it would have become clear that ODD behaviours are extremely common in Asperger syndrome and other high-functioning disorders in the autism spectrum. Concluding remarks At least four diVerent diagnostic systems for Asperger syndrome are currently in use.

Much of what governs our social interactions is intuitive, and something which is expected to be known almost without explicit training. It is diYcult to deWne ‘common sense’. Even so, most people, even school-age children have an inkling of what is inferred by the term. People with Asperger syndrome are so severely handicapped in this domain that they may themselves feel that they do not know ‘how to live’. They appear lost and forlorn. It is usually only towards the end of the pre-adolescent period that it becomes obvious that individuals with Asperger syndrome are so totally lacking in common sense.
