Regardless of an “official” diagnosis, AANE is here to support you in your questions about your Asperger profile. That said, many people choose to seek a diagnosis from a professional for many reasons. This process can be confusing to anyone, as the designations can change from year to year, and there is on-going debate among professionals and non-professionals regarding the parameters of diagnosis. Some individuals go through their own exploration of self-diagnosis without official testing with a professional.
Know that diagnosis, by its very nature, describes broad generalizations. Here at AANE, regardless of your diagnosis, we recognize your unique experience as an individual.
