    So. According to some sources. Chris chan had no speech delay. Which would therefore mean they were misdiagnosed with Autistic Disorder and would in fact has Asperger's syndrome. It seems likely to me that chris chan actually has aspergers, or failing that Child Disintigrative Disorder.
    I will be refering to the disorders by shorthands
    IA for infantile autism,
    AD for autistic disorder,
    AS for asperger's syndrome, and
    CDD for child disintigrative disorder.
    Full explanation

    Firstly since this essay goes heavily into, we need to go over criteria. There is a text document attached to the post with the criteria (can't put it in due to 10k character limit.
    Now the best age i could find for when chris chan was first diagnosed was 5-6. Which complicates things because that would make it around 1987-1988 which could mean either infanitle autism or autistic disorder couold apply. He would absolutely meet hte criteria for infantile autism. Probably autsitic disorder (DSM-III-R) as well. It's likely he was diangosed with autistic disorder at this time but infantile autism is also possible.

    As for the DSM IV, From what I understand chris chan spoke normally. (they claim to have spoken at 2 months but htat's obvious bullshit so it's likely just normally) however, they went mute fater their babysitter locked them in a room. This would suggest a trauma-based mutsim not a speech delay. As such this would mean he woudln't qualify for Autistic Disorder. This would mean he has asperger's syndrome as there was no speech delay. On the other hand let's assume It was in fact a developmetnal delay. Depending on the age it happened it would classify as GDD. It's claimed in the song of chris that he was 1 1/2 at the time, Although they are not a reliable narrator. this makes it incredilby unliekly he would qaulify as having Autistic disorder. It would most lkely be Asperger's syndrome, failing that GDD.

    Why would they be misdiagnosed? There is probably a few reasons he might have been misdiagnosed. Firstly, When they were originally diagnosed with Autistic disorder (possibly infantile autism) The criteria that would disqualify them didnt' exist nor did Asperger's. It's possible no one checked up on that wehn the DSM-IV came out. It's also possible no one looked into why the mutism happened and it not being a speech delay (although age of speech would be a routine question). Another potential reason reason is that, in general alot doctors don't question too much disorders they've already been diagnosed with. Especially if they aren't doing a thorough psychiatric exam.

    Onto the psychiatric assesmsent papers we do have. Firstly it's importnat to note that as he wasn't there to be assessed for autism but for behavioural issues its' likely less atteniotn was put on that.
    Another major issue is, "As per his parents, he did not speak until the age of seven" however we know this isn't true. and tihs could very well be the main reason they were diagnosed as such. It's also worth noting it's clear that chris chan (possibly their parents too) lied during the assessment "He was able to function well academically" When this very clearly was not the case. IIRC he failed some classes and barely passed. So another reason could very well be the chandlers aren't telling the whole story.

    In conclusion, This is why chris chan likely has asperger's and was misdiagnosed with autistic disorder. Which is incredibly amusing since he hates aspies so much. Now we will never know for sure as all the disorders mentioned have since been taken out of clinical usage offically in the united states (and most other places for that matter). Chris chan woudl now be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder Level 1 most likely.

    P.S. Really feeling this line "And, of course, who really has no life here: Chris, or the people who obsessively document and debate everything he does?" from the whiteknighting page.

    Can people with Asperger syndrome have low intelligence?

    Autism has nothing to do with intelligence in general. I believe that ICD-10 might have a criteria that excludes intellectual disability but it woudlnt' matter as chris chan never was diagnosed with Intellectual disability anyway. But america uses the DSM so it's irrelevant.

    I thought Asperger’s wasn’t a thing anymore and it’s just called high functioning autism.

    Why does it matter if Chris was misdiagnosed by the standards of the DSM-4? Surely if you know it exists, you know it's no longer up to date.

    It's not. It was removed from the DSM-5.

    yeah, honestly, does it really matter? I mean, sure, Chris looks down on the label Asperger's, but I feel like that is common among a lot of autistic people that got diagnosed earlier in life or don't mask well (Like Chris!) and feel that they are moving the goal posts too much, especially when it comes to diagnosing autism in girls.

    Then again, it is common for autistic people to have some pick-me tendencies growing up since in some ways, yes, they aren't like other neurotypical people or sometimes even other autistic people (after all, it all affects people differently), but that doesn't mean that there are plenty of other people out there like them that they can relate to and that doesn't make them better or worse.

    At this point, Chris's psychological state should be listed in the DSM-5 as a new disorder.

    Chris managed to hate Chris thanks to aspergers. All that said, I wouldn't be surprised at misdiagnosis considering what potential fuck ups there'd be from Borb's end if they didn't bother to have Chris further examined and the like after being told "your son has autism."

    I'm going to lock this thread. If somebody wants to make a thread speculating on Chris's mental health, by all means, go do that. This particular thread is just trying to diagnose him with a defunct disorder, and OP isn't even here taking part in the conversation.
