Hi Prema,
Your question is answered below;
Chris and Gisela are consultants on Asperger Syndrome [AS] to the new Fox Searchlight Pictures film "My Name is Khan".
Shibani Bathija, who wrote the screenplay for the film, along with director Karan Johar, used their book, as well as interviews with us, as the basis for the film's central character, Rizwan Khan.
Rizwan is played by the acclaimed Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan, and the leading lady is Kajol.
While on subject, I would like to add that we have been happily living with our AS son for the last 29 years. We would like to form/join a support group in India for persons with AS.

Is there a AS family/spouse support group in India. My husband was always special and was formally diagnosed with AS when he was 35yrs. I do not have AS but need support and trained counselor from time to time. Any resource?

Is there such a thing a 'borderline aspergers syndrome'? If so what are the symptoms of this, and could it be passed on? I ask this as my husband has aspergers and he and I have baby boy. So I would like to know if our son, could have it?

I have family on the spectrum. I would love to chat with you as I am trying to contact adults with AS to talk to.

Hi, is there such a thing of being "borderline" Aspergers? I do have a lot of the traits and symptoms of a person with Aspergers, but except for a few and one major one, and that is the fact that I am over emotional. To the point where I can't control them. But everything else seems to fit into my personality and my confusion to everyday situations. Cretin things that I touch hear and drive me out of my mind. I snap uncontrollably at people when cretin things are said to me, like trigger words. I sometimes go into uncontrollable rages if the wrong thing is said, I end up moving objects across the room that take four people to move. But yet I would never touch the person who triggered me, I end up feeling a large amount of my anger is more frustration. Frustration that I don't understand and why don't they understand. I have never passed a test over shear anxiety, and always seem to be at my worst in these situations. I find bliss in the repetitive. And am not quite social, the few friends I have say I'm weird, or the didn't like me when they met me. But seem to love me as I am quite honest and caring. I feel like I am odd and there is something wrong with me, and after watching the film Adam. I feel like that's me. I recently did a test online, and I know they are mostly incorrect. My score inferred that I was on the border, it came down to 2 and I'de be a candidate for Aspergers. So am I being silly or is it possible?
