Things To Avoid If You Want Powerful Memory from steffandevin's blog

Am I applying the Asperger's label too liberally? A debate has Vitobrain Review flared amongst clinicians, researchers and clients themselves regarding the official diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome. In one camp are those who adhere rigidly to diagnostic criteria listed in the DMS-IV (the profession's manual for diagnosing disorders).
These professionals view the individual with "true Asperger's" as not only displaying difficulty in connecting with others, but lack of interest. "Almost by definition, an Asperger's person would not form an intimate relationship, get married and have children," says research scientist Katherine Tsatsanis of the Yale Developmental Disabilities Clinic. "They don't form connections. The desire, the drive and the social knowledge is lacking."
In the second camp are professionals who work with individuals who have lived lives largely feeling isolated, cerebral and confused by the nuances of interpersonal relationships. Some are married, some are not.
