How to Buy XYNG

XYNG is an all-natural Energy supplement that I used to take.

Just recently I have discovered a supplement that I believe is superior to XYNG.

Thrive contains probiotics, pre-biotics, vitamins and minerals in a powerful combination.

As with any supplement the FDA prevents Le-Vel from making any product guarantees.

What I can tell you is that men and women have seen results in less than 2 weeks in everything from:

  • Weight Management
  • Cognitive Performance
  • Joint Support
  • Pain Management
  • Anti-aging & Antioxidant Blend
  • Lean Muscle Support
  • Digestive & Immune Support

 Are you ready to feel alive with Thrive?

What is Asperger Syndrome?

by Dr. Tony Attwood

Dr Hans Asperger, an Austrian pediatrician, originally described Asperger’s Syndrome in 1944. The syndrome has more recently been classified as an autistic spectrum disorder. Children and adults with Asperger’s Syndrome have an intellectual capacity within the normal range, but have a distinct profile of abilities that has been apparent since early childhood. The profile of abilities includes the following characteristics:

  • A qualitative impairment in social interaction:
    • Failure to develop friendships that are appropriate to the child’s developmental level.
    • Impaired use of non-verbal behaviour such as eye gaze, facial expression and body language to regulate a social interaction.
    • Lack of social and emotional reciprocity and empathy.
    • Impaired ability to identify social cues and conventions.
  • A qualitative impairment in subtle communication skills:
    • Fluent speech but difficulties with conversation skills and a tendency to be pedantic, have an unusual prosody and to make a literal interpretation.
  • Restrictive Interests:
    • The development of special interests that is unusual in their intensity and focus.
    • Preference for routine and consistency.

The disorder can also include motor clumsiness and problems with handwriting and being hypersensitive to specific auditory and tactile experiences. There can also be problems with organisational and time management skills and explaining thoughts and ideas using speech. The exact prevalence rates have yet to be determined, but research suggests that it may be as common as one in 250. The aetiology is probably due to factors that affect brain development and not due to emotional deprivation or other psychogenic factors.

The characteristics of Asperger’s Syndrome described above are based on the diagnostic criteria and current research and have also been modified as a result of my extensive clinical experience. I would like to provide a personalised description of Asperger’s Syndrome that also incorporates the person’s qualities as well as their difficulties.

From my clinical experience I consider that children and adults with Asperger’s Syndrome have a different, not defective, way of thinking. The person usually has a strong desire to seek knowledge, truth and perfection with a different set of priorities than would be expected with other people. There is also a different perception of situations and sensory experiences. The overriding priority may be to solve a problem rather than satisfy the social or emotional needs of others. The person values being creative rather than co-operative. The person with Asperger’s syndrome may perceive errors that are not apparent to others, giving considerable attention to detail, rather than noticing the ‘big picture’. The person is usually renowned for being direct, speaking their mind and being honest and determined and having a strong sense of social justice. The person may actively seek and enjoy solitude, be a loyal friend and have a distinct sense of humour. However, the person with Asperger’s Syndrome can have difficulty with the management and expression of emotions. Children and adults with Asperger’s syndrome may have levels of anxiety, sadness or anger that indicate a secondary mood disorder. There may also be problems expressing the degree of love and affection expected by others. Fortunately, we now have successful psychological treatment programs to help manage and express emotions.

How did you find out your son has Asperger Syndrome?

Over the past few years I have felt like I was struggling in parenting our son.  I tried different parenting techniques and took two different parenting classes.  We implemented concepts from each of the courses but one thing was clear, this was more than just a parenting or an anxiety issue.

At 6 and a half and after 18 months of attending school it was obvious that I was not going to get any further insight into our sons’ behaviour from the teachers or administration.  They were not seeing as many of the same behaviors as we were or the extremes that we were seeing at home.  After much searching I found a medical practice that has expertise in psychological evaluating of children and also accepted our insurance. 

Both women in the practice were very nice and very thorough in their evaluation.  I was also pleased to see our son behave in a manor consistent with his typical behaviour during the sessions.  Based on our concerns he underwent the following tests, some of which are questionaires completed by us, his parents, and his teacher and childcare provider.

Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS): Module 2
Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF)
Social Skills Rating System (SSRS)
Test of Language Development
Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales – Parent Rating Form
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children
Woodcock-Johnson, Third Edition – Tests of Achievement
Home observation
Classroom Observation
Playground/School Observation

At the completion of the tests they took a few weeks to complete a very detailed report and determine the diagnosis.  We met with the medical team to discuss the results along with recommendations.  We are happy we persued our concerns about our sons development and are in the process of taking many of the steps recommended. 

As an internet geek and avid researcher I will be adding additional posts about Aspergers along with tools or sites that I find in my search to help our son.
