High Functing Autism

People with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome do not have the delayed language development that's typically found in people with autism. In addition, people with high-functioning autism have average or above average intelligence. However, they may show other behaviors and signs similar to what's seen with other types of autism: delay in motor skills lack of skill in interacting with others little understanding of the abstract uses of language, such as humor or give-and-take in a conversation obsessive interest in specific items or information strong reactions to textures, smells, sounds, sights, or other stimuli that others might not even notice, such as a flickering light Unlike people with other forms of autism, people with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome want to be involved with others. They simply don't know how to go about it. They may not be able to understand others' emotions. They may not read facial expressions or body language well. As a result, they may be teased and often feel like social outcasts. The unwanted social isolation can lead to anxiety and depression.

Carter is so hillarious. He is this chubby, tall, incredably sart five year old. He says things sometimes that make me laugh out loud. On Christmas day my dad was reading a Christmas book, he stops and talks to the boys about how some people are poor and some are wealthy. To which Carter replies "Im not poor" dad asked how he knew that and he said "because I have a Wii." wow so matter of factly.
He loves to bowl on the Wii. Carter can tell how many pins he knocked down but also yells out how many he needs to get. Adding and subtracting already. If he does not win he says "you cheated" I have no idea where he got that.
