I think my 26 year old brother might have mild autism.?
Everybody has always said he "has his own little world". He does OK for himself. He has a job, pays rent, has a car, a cell phone, cable tv. He has never been good at expressing himself. He shows many other habits that fit into the description of aspergers syndrome. His "social" life consists mostly of going out to do things by himself. This seems to be satisfying for him, but I am afraid that inside he really is frustrated. I have always thought to myself that he needs a good girl - a reason to think more of himself and someone to open up to. My suspisions about autism are new. Should I make this information about autism and aspergers syndrome available to him? I'm afraid that suggesting he has some kind of syndrome might hurt him more than help him. If anybody has any personal experiences or good references about diagnosing an adult, please help.
