Aspergers Is:

Found a brilliant page listing real and fictional characters that display strong Aspergers traits.

So, If you've ever wondered what a person with Aspergers is actually like, think:

Basil Fawlty, Bert (Bert & Ernie), Bill Gates, Sherlock Holmes, Henry Higgins (My Fair Lady), Einstein, Catweazle, Beethoven, Pippi Longstocking, Edward Scissorhands, Gerald McBoing-Boing, Phileas Fogg, Alex Keaton (Family Ties), Doctors Craig and Ehrlich (St Elsewhere), Thomas Newton (The Man Who Fell To Earth), Carl Jung and Dilbert.

Yup, I think that about says it.

So now, all you 'never heard of it' types,
now you know the sort,
how many have you actually come across already and just never knew it?

P.S. See an even more comprehensive list (sadly with some broken links) HERE.

This post, like most others before it was copied across from my other blog. All the comments are over on mad baggage.
However - if you have found this through technorati and are a teacher, parent or aspie (or all 3) - please comment!

Even if you disagree, please say hi, because I'm on a learning curve and it would be good to return the honour and visit your site.
