Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) who are fluently verbal are not free of language and communication challenges. The purpose of this article is to assist others in recognizing and understanding the subtle and not so subtle problems that do occur. The presence or intensity of the following social communication and language characteristics of high-functioning individuals with autism spectrum disorders may vary by age and by individual. Some of these characteristics are found in others who do not have an autism spectrum disorder, for example, in individuals with language or learning disabilities. With increasing age and increasing communication competency, most of these characteristics lessen or disappear for those who do not have an autism spectrum disorder. It is the frequency and persistence of some of these characteristics from childhood into adulthood that exemplifies the syndrome of autism.
Social problems have existed throughout society for most of recorded history, and they will continue as noted in some of the examples studied this semester.
Haha I’m taking the exam tomorrow too! So, you’re gonna need to get at least from 87% on the multiple choice, and 5/6 on both essay questions (which altogether will get you an 86). But it’s going to vary, so how you calculate it is multiply the percent you are thinking to get on the mutliple choice by .7 (70%), and the percentage you think you’ll get on the essay questions by .3 (2*15%) and then add it altogether!Good luck!
