What Is Asperger's Syndrome?

Asperger's Syndrome is a neurological developmental disorder considered part of the Autism Spectrum.

Children afflicted with Asperger's Syndrome will encounter difficulty in understanding social cues and interacting with other people.

Individuals with Asperger's Syndrome may be very intelligent and extremely verbal. Interestingly enough, boys tend to be four times as likely as girls to be diagnosed with this disorder.

Other characteristics that occur with Asperger's Syndrome include:

  • Sub-optimal or poor motor skills

  • Sensory integration problems including sensory sensitivities such as tactile sensitivity or fear of loud noises.

  • Obsessive behaviors

  • Challenges with planning/organizing information
