Is it necessary to disclose the diagnosis of patient's Asperger's syndrome to his children?
Asperger is not usually diagnosed in adulthood
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.
A diagnosis of Aspergers syndrome is difficult to make in adulthood and requires detailed childhood history and social interaction status. The symptoms are usually less social interaction with impairment in non verbal communications, though mental development and verbalization is normal.
At this age, other diagnosis of decreased social interaction like depression, metabolic disorders, degenerative brain diseases and intracranial space occupying lesions have to be ruled out.
Hardest part is to discuss the diagnosis with children.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
