This new app can screen for Asperger's
Asperger’s syndrome is described as a mild form of autism and often get diagnosed until adulthood. This means that those who have it face a lifetime of difficulties.
Now thanks to an autism research center and a determined mother, there may be a quick and easy way to diagnose it earlier.
Patty Dion’s son, Dave, was diagnosed with Asperger’s when he was 34 years old, after years of therapies and medicines for other disorders. He killed himself soon after he was diagnosed.
She was determined to make sure that no one else should suffer the same way due to the lack of a correct diagnosis. Thanks to her efforts, the DAVE Social Challenges Screening (SCREEN) Questionnaire has come about.
Now with 15 questions that need yes or no answers, parents and teachers can find out if the child has Asperger's and seek help. The app is available for free on App Store or Google Play. All you have to do is download it. Its called Think Asperger’s.
