About me

My name is Englebert Lau. The first time I heard about Aspergerís Syndrome was at the age of 30. My friend Yeatland watches a television show called Community. Yeatland commented that the Abed Nadir character (who has Aspergerís Syndrome) reminded him of me.

Over dinner, I read through the Wikipedia article on Aspergerís Syndrome with Yeatland, and we talked about qualities that I have that matched the article.

Yeatland recommended that I see a psychologist to confirm the diagnosis. If Yeatland was right, the psychologist might be able to suggest coping mechanisms to better deal with Aspergerís Syndrome.

After having dinner with Yeatland, I met with a psychologist three times. I also read four different books about Aspergerís Syndrome.

The purpose of this website is to share a light hearted perspective on Aspergerís Syndrome. Iíd like to increase exposure about Aspergerís Syndrome for a wide range of people, by providing examples of how it affects my everyday life. I've spent 20+ years of trial and error to develop my own coping mechanisms to overcome challenges in dating and the workplace. I'd like to share my advice with other people who have experienced similar situations.
