There are all sorts of links on the net saying that this is a big lie, but it is confirmed in the story. Nevertheless, there are still stories out there by Aspies and their supporters saying that there is no evidence that he was ever diagnosed with Aspergers. But even those stories seem to state that he had some Aspergers symptoms. They seem to be contradicting themselves and wanting to have it both ways. The best analysis seems to be the Rodger had Aspergers, possibly diagnosed around age 7.
The divorce documents also confirmed that Elliot Rodger was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, a form of autism, when he was 7. “Elliot has special needs,” his mother said in a sworn statement. “He is a high functioning autistic child.”
That’s pretty incontrovertible.
