Hello! I am a young adult. While I do have an ASD that is not Aspergers, I do question the origin of my ASD. When I was three years old, they did this test called the DPII and reported that my Social domain was an area of strength like engaging in eye contact with my mother, playing Pat-a-Cake, waving bye, and responding to my name when my mother calls me. But when I was one year old, I was delayed by 50% in Motor, Language, and Cognition Domains. Social and Communication domains was delayed only 25%. When I was eight years old, I was diagnosed with PDD-NOS at 11 years old. My school district had me on an IEP but kept changing diagnosis from Mental retardation to Speech and Language Impairment to Specific Learning Disability and back to Speech and Language Impairment. I did suddenly changed schools in 3rd grade at 8 years, where I was unable to make any friends. I grew more depressed and isolated because of lack of friends and socialization on top of being placed into a Resource Room for my education 75% of the day. I don't know if my diagnoses that was changed to Autism caused by the environmental factors like moving into a new school or my premature birth at less than 500 grams. These days when I'm in my community college, I feel quite like an outsider. I feel like everyone in the class can socialize in a way that I felt have not "acquired" everyone else's style of communicating. I always get the thought in my head "Why on earth when others communicate I feel completely out of place?." Do you think the same way?
