Asperger syndrome is a new diagnosis of a form of autism and very hard to diagnose. A friend of mine has spent the last 10 years putting her son in all kinds of state facility to get help for his odd and unusual violent behavior. All the places she has taken him too return him home and say his is fine. However, last night his mother lay dead and his step father is in critical condition because this now 15 year old boy went off his rocker with a pistol! What do you know of this new diagnosed form of autism?

After reflecting I have to agree...this was the last diagnosis the boy recieved.
To be honest the boy has been diagnosed with A to Z..... Asperger was the last diagnosis, but treatments seemed to make things worse. So sad. However, it is good to have a clarification on what Asperger is.
As a clinical counselor, I have so many kids misdiagnosed, and with the symptoms described, I would posit that you take a good look at PTSD. Visit my Hubs for more on PTSD in children as a result of interpersonal trauma.
That is so true. Don't know why I did not think of that...but that may have been a label he had before. PTSD can cover a lot of disorders. My spouse is PTSD. I wrote a hub about living with a spouse who has PTSD. Would appreciate your input ...
I agree on the judgement!
