Would like to hear some thoughts on high functioning autism vs antisocial personality disorder..... have neuropsychological testing scheduled for Oct 1st. Therapists are very unsure which way this is going to go.... Therapist are telling us that SS is showing some signs that it could go either way. They are really not sure if SS is just that cunning or if he really just does not understand. After doing some reading, I would like to hear some input from others that may have experienced this type of situation. I feel he’s too manipulative to be autist, but have also been told that every child with autism is unique. That being said, has anyone worked with an artist child that was manipulative and deceitful?
