What Is Asperger's Syndrome?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
What Is Asperger's Syndrome?

Asperger's Syndrome has recently come under the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorder. This syndrome usually affects the social skills of the patient, most heavily. The patient may seem normal and even intelligent at first glance. But on closer interaction, several social skill problems will come to the fore including an obsessive focus on certain topics and issues. Repetitive behaviour is also a part of this disease.

Let us find out more about Asperger's Syndrome:

  • Symptoms: The symptoms usually begin to show up early on in one's childhood. The patient will not be able to make eye contact while speaking with others. Also, a perfectly normal person may seem inordinately shy and reserved during social interactions. This awkwardness may come to the fore in the form of looking for expression cues on other people's faces and even the body language. The patient may not be a very happy and lively soul, with hardly a smile to crack at the funniest of jokes. The lack of emotions or the emotionally numb state is also a major giveaway of the condition. Other symptoms may include a strong aversion towards change in food habits and routine.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis is usually done by mental health specialists like a developmental paediatrician, a psychiatrist, a psychologist or even a paediatric neurologist. These specialists can put the child through a variety of tests that will study the neurological health as well as the speech and emotional behaviour of the child.
  • Educating the Parent: Once the diagnosis has been done, the parents of the patient will have to appraised of the condition and its implications. The symptoms and treatment will have to be duly discussed even as the parents are put through training and therapy to learn techniques with which they can help the child in progressing along more normal lines. The therapy will also help the parents deal with the challenge of living with someone suffering from this condition.
  • Treatment: There are varied forms of treatment that aim at fixing the specific areas and symptoms that the patient is learning to live with. Social skills training, speech and language therapy, CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other forms of treatment can help the child overcome many symptoms that come from this condition.

In the course of the treatment, it is important for the child, parent and therapist concerned to realise that there is no single approach that can be applied to all patients suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Individual care and therapy will be required for individual cases. At the same time, most of the skills will need to be repeated at home so that the child takes them more seriously.

I am on antidepressants from the last 6 years. I take lamitor, bupron, fluvoxin and modalert daily as prescribed by my doctor. It has provided me some improvement but the the issue it not completely resolved. The main problem is with the memory. Out of 7 days in a week around 3 days I find difficult to remember things for example my batch mate name. The day I do not take the medicine I keep forgetting after every 5 minutes. There is no mental stress in my life, therefore I don't know what exactly is the root cause. I have heard that mental stress might not be the only reason for depression. Even if it is depression I have never heard it to be linked with memory loss. I am a researcher in genomics and I do fell that some further research in this field could give some explanation. I daily do yoga where I daily put a few drops of medicated badam oil in my nose and as soon as I use it my mind feels relaxed. If I miss my medicine or do not use the oil, the memory loss becomes very evident. May me the oil has something to do with neurotransmitters. Earlier I took only fluoxetine for a couple of years but when I shifted to my present medicines, I found a drastic improvement but now it has become stagnant. Is there some better cure.

Hello Doctor, I am a smoker, and nowadays i am facing issue with breathing issue.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It means that you have probably already damaged your lungs from years of smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. Please stop your smoking immediately either with the help of a counselor or by joining a Smokers Anonymous group near you. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Follow al the advise I have given earlier related queries to help yourself.

Hello lybrate-user, You appear to have symptoms of anxiety disorder. The best treatment would be a combination of medications and psychotherapy sessions. But it appears you don't want medicines. In that case you should take therapy sessions. The most effective therapy is called cognitive behaviour therapy wherein the therapist works along with you on the faulty thinking practices that are often seen in anxiety disorders. Further certain relaxation techniques can be used that will decrease the symptom. I suggest that you see a psychiatrist/clinical psychologist at the earliest.

Hello, Anxiety, which often is associated with insomnia and feelings of fear, is due primarily to aggravation of vata dosha in the nervous system. So to heal anxiety, we have to balance vata. Here are several effective Ayurvedic remedies to pacify vata, heal anxiety and fear, and improve your sleep. CALMING TEA. Make a tea of the following herbs: tagar or valerian 1 part musta 1 part Steep ½ teaspoon of these herbs in 1 cup hot water for 5 to 10 minutes, and drink. This formula effectively pacifies vata and reduces anxiety. You can drink this tea twice a day. RELAXING BATH. A warm bath of ginger and baking soda will help you pacify anxiety. Use ⅓ cup ginger and ⅓ cup baking soda in a tubful of water. Soak for 10 to 15 minutes. ALMOND MILK. Almond milk helps to eliminate anxiety. Soak about 10 raw (not toasted) almonds overnight in water. Peel off the skins, and put the almonds in the blender. Add 1 cup warm milk. While blending, add a pinch of ginger and a small pinch of nutmeg and saffron. ORANGE JUICE. For anxiety accompanied by a fast heart rate, a cup of orange juice with 1 teaspoon of honey and a pinch of nutmeg powder can be effective. CALMING PRESSURE POINT. Make a fist with your left hand, so that the fingers rest in the middle of the palm. Locate the point where the middle finger ends, in the “heart” of the palm. Then, with the thumb of your right hand, press firmly on this point in the center of your left hand. Press for 1 minute. This will calm down the agitation of prana, which causes anxiety. Hope this helps.

Dear lybrate-user, unfortunately people are still hesitant to go to a doctor when it comes to mental health. Going to a psychiatrist is still a taboo. If this is the issue, you may tell your mother that she can take an appointment with a counsellor. A counsellor is also a mental health professional and can help people with situational difficulties. Now a days people are becoming more open about visiting a counsellor. The counsellor will be able to understand if your mother needs some assessments and if she needs intervention by a psychiatrist. Your mother may be sad and feeling helpless or hopeless. The counselling process will give her an outlet to express herself which will help her. All the best.

You may need psychotherapy and medicines for longer period. Start doing exercise and morning walk 30--45 minutes daily. Also yoga pranayam and meditation will help. For more scientific suggestions feel free to ask with details.

It will be better if you quit smoking as its just harming your body. If you have difficulty quitting there are many treatments available to help you in the form of both medication and counselling. Continue exercising under supervision and eat a balanced diet rich in all the nutrients. While gymming it will be beneficial to take high protein diet like eggs. Please think seriously about quitting smoking.

My voice had become little vibration type. I am not a chain smoker but occasionally I do. Hw to get back my purified voice?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ Problems with voice are usually related to anxiety and using voice for more time and with higher pitch than normal. If voice rest does not help, I can certainly help with medications to treat your anxiety to restore you voice back. I am sure this will help. I hope you can pay online to book a private and confidential appointment to be able to move forwards with the treatment options.

Dear anxiety or depression are clinical terms so please do not go in their details. Improper sleep leads to overall tiredness, bad mood and low spirits. Anxiety or depression occurs when 1. We are not prepared to face a situation 2. We are trying to avoid and accept a concern or situation 3. We have accepted that there is no problem to the situation. So you need to identify where the problem is and then only we can think of solution. Do brisk walk 30-40min daily, add rasins, almonds, gooseberry and milk to your diet. Feel free to discuss with me.

Good friendships should bring out the best in you. If this girl has moved on for some reason, you must learn to accept it gracefully. True intimacy is all about being comfortable when that person is both close to you and as well as when she moves away. This is the difference between attachment and bonding: the former can be made with anybody and anything too - it is typically based on insecurity and your behavior will be clingy. Whereas bonding is based on security and it can be made only with a human being, which is normally with the mother, primarily. You may have suffered problems of attachment with your mother and so will find it difficult to bond. Please work with a counselor to resolve that and then you will feel better. Leave this girl alone and learn if there was anything you did to push her away, like clingy behavior. Then change that and you will make good rapport with people.

One man cannot solve all the problems. At one stage all the problems are come at one time. We cannt expect and imagine that. This stage is common in every one life. But in this stage we should not bend for small issues. Maintain strong status it is important. If we give high priority for small issues. We may be collapsed. Main problem cannot be solved the other problems may come like visiting psychiatrist or using medicine. So in this stage we feel very confident. Take further steps to recover from this status. Problems cannot solved at one day. It may take longer time. But up to that we wait for the right moment. Do not feel strain. It may also caused for physical disorders also. Do not be alone. Share your all feelings and problems with your friends and family members. Maintain very good social relations. Take the help of advice to overcome from this problems. Be happy all the time. Be enjoy every movement of the life. Ok all the best.

I have a problem, whenever i am stressed i tend to get up in the night and overeat even though i know that i am not hungry. I have been detected with sugar recently and have started medicine for the same, but the problem of overeating is there for almost 3 years now, how do i treat this

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Diabetes and over-eating is a dangerous combination. Have you identified what your stress is all about! Is it because you are sad, scared, or angry? If it is one of the above, you are doing emotional eating. It is simple in theory but difficult when you have become habituated to it ? deal with the feeling and your urges will drop. When you wake up at night, do some reading while still lying down and occupy your mind to distract it from the urge to consume food. Don?t leave your bed, unless it is to urinate. Make a little contract with yourself that if you ever eat during the night, you will do half an hour of vigorous exercise as compensation. Wow, that will be a great dampener I hope. Satisfying an oral need could also suggest that you need attention, love, and could do with loads of physical contact. Again you will need to seek this in appropriate ways. You see you are not only eating but over-eating. The desperateness is manifest in that sign alone. You can of course give yourself attention, love and contact but it is not the same as getting it from someone who loves you and you love too. Find that person now but don?t catch any Tom, Dick or Harry. Be choosy.
