Are you an adult who wonders if you are on the spectrum? Because Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has become more in the public eye in recent years, I commonly receive requests for evaluations from adults in Sacramento that are concerned that they have symptoms and signs that may be consistent with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Asperger’s.
If you have a diagnosis of Asperger’s, perhaps you have a job and are great at the technical aspects, but avoid parties or hallway chatter. Romantically, you may be in a relationship, but get criticized by your partner for not saying the right thing at the right time, not “connecting” with her/him, or not being empathetic enough. You do not really get what you are doing wrong, but apparently, it’s something!
