I have an 8 y/o girl who I believe has Asperger's. She can function in everyday activities, play sports, wash dishes ect. But she also has her moments where she just has impulse problems where she does things anyone else wouldn't as well as angry fits of rage, oh and she HAS to sit behind me in the car. But my questions are: Can s0meone with AS still have a low IQ (Anna's is 71)? Also (and this one is more personal but its important) is masturbation in public (like school) a trait? We have been dealing with that one since kindergarten.

Well her fits last for about 15 minutes...they aren't as bad as they used to be. She had a fit one time where she literally threw her mattress off her bed. And has also thrown a chair at her kindergarten teacher. But I'd say maybe once a month now for the big ones but a couple small ones a week. As for services she has an IEP at school because of her IQ/LD. She is going to be tested for dyslexia next month. Thanks for the reply.
