Example text

Also, polytropic people can more easily shift from topic to topic in a conversation. This inability to move comfortably from topic to topic can cause the conversation of someone with Asperger Syndrome to appear stiff and stilted. We will briefly review the concept of monotropism in our discussion regarding auditory processing difficulties later on in the chapter. Let’s see how this might relate to an individual becoming an easy target for being bullied. Vern, a 14-year-old boy with Asperger Syndrome, has just arrived home from school.

The boy insisted that my friend, the consultant, always hide in the same spot so he would know exactly where to find her. My friend had trouble explaining to him that “hide and seek” is not fun if you always know where the person is going to hide. Again, because he lacked imagination (and was rigid), it was hard for him to engage in appropriate play for an 11-year-old. Another 12-year-old with Asperger’s, Peter, demonstrates this characteristic. Though Peter tries hard and wants to be liked by his peers, he often has a difficult time gaining their acceptance.

They start laughing at him. Vern has no idea what he did wrong. This story illustrates how Vern was judged negatively because of his monotropic nature. His weaknesses in social understanding were misperceived as him being spacey. Let’s review the events of these two days. First, Vern was overwhelmed by the seven assignments that were all due the next day. On top of this, when his mother asked him to go to the store, it further lowered his frustration tolerance and caused a meltdown. A polytropic person could have more easily handled the seven assignments and would not have had a problem going to the store.
