”Almost half of UK adults would find it difficult to tell their own family if they thought they had dementia according to a poll commissioned by Alzheimer’s Society published today (Tuesday 21 May).” – Alzheimers Society

”The term ‘dementia‘ describes a set of symptoms that include loss of memory, mood changes, and problems with communication and reasoning.  There are many types of dementia.  The most common are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.  Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse.” – Alzheimers Society

The Difference Between Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome

The Sensory Spectrum

With my recent post about Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism (click here), there has been a lot of discussion about what the difference is between Asperger’s and Autism as well. The Autism Society has written up a terrific round-up of the perceived differences between Asperger’s and Autism.
