Really enjoyed the webinar today! My 27 yo nephew lives with me (2 yrs now). He was diagnosed with Aspbergers as a preteen. He is definitely HF and very bright. He lives with me, as his options of cohabitation have become limited. Without getting into details, his parents cannot manage him, and struggle motivating him (they are divorced, now remarried to others). He attempted living independently with a roommate, which failed. It was just too much pressure at the time. My question to the community is this - Do you believe that HF ASD individuals can suffer from PTSD, due to years of childhood trauma (bullying, corporal punishment, screaming/yelling)? I believe my nephew suffers from PTSD, but not sure how to approach it.
