I have not, but I suspect AS on myself which has made me interested in the subject. I've recently been interested how Temple Grandin helps children with autism. I think it can be considered in some aspects. I recommend the movie about her life "Temple Grandin", made in 2010.

thanks for the referral on temple grandin-i had forgotten about the movie. I've recently done a lot of research on aspergers. there is a lot of information you you tube that shows the stemming traits (hand flapping) and also the repetitive speech on specific topics-mainly children-haven't seen adults on you tube. lot of info on internet-also support groups around the country. be well, loretta

I have autism as well. I have a hard time coping with troubling thoughts (these thoughts stay in my mind almost all day everyday for months).
