Other autism issues
I find the human tendency to label and categorize things interesting---the labeling and categorization of other people specifically. Sometimes it's practical---we do it naturally, subconsciously or consciously, all the time; it helps us to make sense of and create order and comfort in our lives. But it can also be lazy and unnecessary, and detrimental to others.
I know I'm not updating as regularly as I used too, but work and study makes it difficult to get in the mood.
T889 "Problem Solving" has been a new kind of challenge for me, but worthwhile, I have learnt many ways to spot issues in situations. Also turn SpaceX's explosion last year into sucess for me.
But it has been a great opportunity to apply & expand my knowledge on launching rockets.
My TMA scores are 54%, 70% and 71%, giving me 65.5% OCAS. Very good for a master's level.
I have a diagnosis of autism, but have not been assessed for dyscalculia, although I know I have it because I've always struggled with numbers and have no maths qualifications as a result (it's beyond just having a weakness in this area - I have a severe deficit that was picked up on in primary school, and was assessed, but no official diagnosis was given - dyscalculia was not formally named until very recently). I was wanting to have a proper assessment done so that I could have a formal diagnosis of dyscalculia because it might offer some protection and recognition of this difficulty.

Hello I'm new to the forum but really need some advice or ideas about this. My 16 year old son has ASD and ADD and although he seems relatively normal on the outside he doesn't have great emotional maturity. He wants to have a girlfriend and had already lost one friendship at school over a girl. In that context, two days ago out of the blue he got a friend request from a girl and he accepted without us realising. As soon as he did she started messaging him and got him to give her his phone number and address.
