Hello. I am 17 and my mother has recently become adamant that I have Aspergers Syndrome. My Dad, on the other hand, is adamant that I don't have it. No one other than my mother has ever suggested that I might have it, and I am the top boy in my year level, at a very good school.

I look at the DSM-IV criteria and don't really think I have it (at least, my behaviour these days suggests I don't have it - I'm not sure about when I was younger), but I'm not completely sure.

Is it possible that I could have Aspergers at 17, while no one I've ever come across (except my mother) has ever even thought I might have it?

Thanks.
