    I got 6. Why am I on TSR then? :ninja:

    To throw the cat among the pigeons.

    There is apparently new studies which state that you either ARE autistic or are not - IE: there is no spectrum. Interesting argument, and I agree.

    Autism should be distinct from Aspergers, which most definitely does have a spectrum and arguably everyone is on it, since almost anything can mean you can be diagnosed with Aspergers. It's essentially the mental health equivalent of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

    No wonder others get pissed off at people getting extra time in exams
    It's literally never occurred to me that those with greater learning difficulties/disabilities than myself ought not to get extra time/I somehow should feel cheated by this. What planet are these people on? :dontknow:

    I was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3.
    Guess you've made progress! :woo:

    I think the test would give a better idea if it had more questions related to responses to sensory stimuli
    Yes indeed
