About Me » Blogging AS an Aspie
Matt has Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and is writing this blog so that people can gain more of an insight into how people with the condition process thoughts, feel emotions, react to situations and generally handle life.

About Me

I’m Matt, an 18 year old young man with Asperger’s Syndrome (key point with, not suffering from).

I live in Sunderland, which is in the North-East of England. However, I spend the first sixteen and a half years of my life being brought up near the Tyne; hence I consider myself to be a Geordie. I live in a supported hall of residence, which is part of a 24-hour curriculum provided by a specialist college.

As part of the curriculum, I also attend a local GFE college, where I am presently studying A2 Chemisty, HEFC Human Biology and AS Math. Last year, I achieved an ‘A’ in A2 Physics, and a ‘C’ in AS Chemistry. I have always been described as “academically very able“, and until recently, my social skills were always holding me back to a large extent.

I’m writing this blog to help others (Aspies, parents, professionals, and the general public) gain a more in-depth insight into how somebody with Asperger’s Syndrome copes in today’s socially-oriented world. I also post my random observations on here, what I see, and how I interpret it. I know it’s different to most, in that I can retain an awful lot of detail, particularly if something interests me…
