This is an autism spectrum disorder, an umbrella term for a number of related conditions characterized by problems with communicating and language, and with repetitive thoughts and speech. People with this disorder often have high intelligence and vast knowledge on narrow subjects but lack social skills. In 2012 the American Psychiatric Association dropped this term and replaced it with DMDD.
But when it comes to behavioral or emotional challenges with asperger, treatment is difficult.
The U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development says
Asperger is thought to be the mildest of these conditions. Symptoms of Asperger
Being very literal in speaking and understanding.
Difficulty recognizing and interpreting body language.
Repeating or obsessing over rituals and routines.
Problems with motor skills, including clumsiness or lack of coordination.
Difficulty with social skills, particularly in communicating with others.
Sensitivity to sounds, lights, textures and tastes.

He has been on 5-TPT with B6, SAM-E other vitamins and supplements for 4 months. Nothing is working. I'm trying to figure out how to get serotonin from the RN to his hippocampus, Amalgdala, ACC and PFC.
