Is there an online test aspergers and autism individuals who are undiagnosed can use to point them in the direction of a possible diagnosis?
Many people wonder if Aspergers and Autism are just the newest fad in mental health. They wonder whether therapists and doctors are just slapping this diagnosis on any kid they see who may have some social difficulties.
