Asperger’s Syndrome


Asperger Syndrome (AS) is a neurobiological condition and a developmental disorder where the individual’s brain is wired differently. This affects social communication, social interaction, social-emotional regulation, imagination and sensory motor and sensory processing issues. Asperger Syndrome is considered to be part of the Autism Spectrum Disorders.


Individuals affected by Asperger’s Syndrome, are characterized by social isolation and odd behavior in childhood. There are impairments in two-sided social interaction and non-verbal communication. Though grammatical, their speech is peculiar due to abnormalities of inflection and a repetitive pattern. Clumsiness is prominent both in their articulation and gross motor behavior. They usually have a circumscribed area of interest which usually leaves no space for more age appropriate, common interests. Some examples are cars, trains, history, scientific facts, door knobs, hinges, meteorology, astronomy or even murder mysteries.For More Details…..
