Your View On Autism / ADHD / Aspergers?

Someone said :

Is that entirely true? I know of several people with other forms of Autism that can be quite violent. I know my own brother has had his moments.

In my view, it is quite worrying that someone who seems to be quite a vulnerable individual has been taken into custody. I don't know how I would feel if he was convicted.

Penny I was at the meeting. Did I seem violent to you?

People should not confuse polar opposites on the autism spectrum. ADHD is hyperactivity. Asperger if anything is the exact opposite: introversion. So if he has Asperger I would say it has nothing to do with this case.

An Asperger sufferer is quiet and not prone to spontaneous behaviour. It is NOT full blown autism. RTE referred to this man as "autistic".

The Irish media are known for jumping to conclusions, as the Roma children case shows.

Why wouldn't they report? It could be that the chap isn't well.

It wasn't too long ago that when there was a case of same-sex child abuse, the sexuality of the abuser was prominent in the report.

The issue isn't that the fact is being reported, rather that the way it is reported implies an incredibly negative stereotype... In this case, stay away from aspergers, they're dangerous!

Also, the media tend to be good at normalizing things. Murder is horrible. But if some sort of 'misfit' does it, it's more palatable.

I wasn't talking about you Eamonn.

You see, I see this very differently. I think his condition has a lot to do with the case, not that it made him do it but that it should mean he is treating differently by the courts.

Not always. If someone has ADHD of the inattentive type, then he/she is not necessarily hyperactive.

He may not have had Aspergers, but a different form of autism.

I did an online quiz, on Psychcentral.com and scored very highly on it. Should I be concerned, or should I seek further diagnosis on the matter?

Why did some newspapers report that Patrick Dunne has Asperger's syndrome? What relevance did that fact about him have to the crime he has been charged with?



Obviously we don't know his specific condition but it very well could be relevant. In the cortroom at least. Should the papers print all the these details without knowing their relevance, no not really, it's just gossip.

I think that if we all took the test we'd be borderline something or other. I'm of the opinion that so-called conditions such as aspergers are modernistic first-world conditions which are applied to people who choose to contribute nothing to society but their own self-indulgence.

An expert, in psychiatry now as well and what else are you an expert at. You do know, they used to lock mentally ill patients in prisons and thought they had evil spirits in them?

You cannot be serious?? Were you unlocked perhaps or awaiting an appointment?

I don't know about aspergers but you have of course seen children and adults with other types of autism? And maybe you have seen the progress these children can make when diagnosed early and not just left in a corner as they might have beenyears ago?

Absolutely, autism is an undoubted condition that deserves all the resources it receives and more. I've met a couple of people with aspergers, one of them was a total cunt who lied their way through life. When challenged - "oh I can't help it - it's my aspergers"
