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.

For this very reason, I advise you to be very cautious and conservative about over-diagnosing yourself or a loved one.  However, there is a lot of curiosity and few resources.  I found this online test at Wired.Com, and it’s based on a very well respected researcher.

Black Box Warning: An Online Test Does Not Take the Place of Getting Testing With A Seasoned Psychologist Who Specializes in Diagnosing Aspergers and Autism.

Furthermore, be sure the professional that you see specializes in diagnosis either: children or adults, depending on who is being tested.

Without further ado, I will include the link to this online test for aspergers and mild autism.

Hi, was told by mental health worker 3 years ago that am more than likely on aspergers spectrum ,went to doctor and my doctor and in general the NHs dont seem all that interested, my doctor wrote to psychiatrist who had seen me previously regarding my gender disphoria and was told that he didnt notice it then ,not very conclusive, so recently after encountering huge problems at college ,which is typical for me,i went back to doctor who wrote again to psychiatrist,its causing me lot of upset as i am trying to work out why a lot of experiences i have had have been so bad in life in general, and i feel people have observed tendencies in me that seem to be symptoms of aspergers ,i have done this test twice each time scoring 31 i have done other aspergers tests and scored higher they seemed to involve more say childhood or deep questions think thats why i scored higher as i have done some pretty strange things in the past,was wondering can i go private or what can i do? I feel let down that a member of NHs brought this condition into the equation where i had hardly heard of aspergers and then other members of NHS simply say they didnt notice it in me would prefer more conclusive answer than that lucinda

was reading a book where the character worries too much, and she was worrying that she had aspergers. As I was reading this, I was reading all the symptoms it said and going yep that sounds like me. I decided to look into it more, and looked for aspergers tests for teens. This one does not seem to be age related, so I took it and it said I was a 38. How can I know if I have aspergers.

I would recommend, since you are in the UK, to go to the Aspergers Syndrome page of the National Autistic Society. On the right hand side of the page, you'll see a resource box called "find local services". Hopefully that will lead you to a trained professional who can assess whether you truly have Aspergers or not.

I scored a 44 too. The questions are too general. I think that while it might be an indication it does not mean that I trully have asperger's. I advise people who want to take the test not to take too much stock on it.

I agree with one point: you don't want to take this test as definitive. It's only one indication that you may want to further pursue testing by a competent professional.

i scored 32 on the test but have already been comfirmed by a doctor that i have aspergers so this test gave me relief to know there are other people out there with aspergers.

Absolutely, Courtney: there are many, many other people around the world with Aspergers. I'm so glad that you found that doctor, this test, and this blog. I hope you'll come back often :)

I am actually relieved to learn about aspergers, my entire life I felt "off" as if something was just different for me. As an adult my anxiety about changes in my routine has really reached a peek and after being diagnosed as depressed then ocd then later just general anxiety I actually found something on my own that makes some sense to me!

Schoen185, I'm glad that you were able to get some relief from a diagnosis. I hope that you are continuing to benefit from it :) Thank you for sharing your story.

Cathy was a high functioning child with autism. Some people refer to her as a child with Aspergers Syndrome. Both terms are correct. ..

Oh dear... I just scored a 44 on that test (over 32 indicates asperger's characteristics).

Robert, remember that this is an online quiz, and that it does not take the place of more formal testing by a seasoned professional. On the other hand, your score may warrant your further exploration on this matter.
