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.
