Self diagnosis of Aspergers?
People all over the board keep mentioning that the Newtown killer has Aspergers or was autistic like it was an absolute truth.
David mentioned yesterday that it seemed that the mother has diagnosed him by herself. Since then, I've been looking for any report that a family doctor or psychiatrist who actually treated the boy has confirmed this...but no. The closest thing I have found of a source are the reports that say "Neighbors report to such-and-such news that Nancy Lanza had told them her son was autistic/ had Aspergers/ insert mental disorder here."
Since it seems that people with Aspergers do not display these character traits... does it seem that Nancy Lanza's diagnosis of her son might be wrong?
Does anyone have a link confirming from the kid's pediatrician or any medical professional confirming that he did, indeed, have Aspergers? Or are we just perpetuating false information?
