Asperger’s syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that is considered to be at the milder, high functioning end of the autism spectrum. As with other autism spectrum disorders, children with Asperger’s face problems with social skills and communication but they typically function better and generally have normal intelligence and near-normal language development.
The symptoms and severity of Asperger’s syndrome vary widely in individuals but can include difficulty interacting with others, trouble making friends, repetitive behaviors, preoccupation with certain rituals or narrow subjects, a limited range of interests, clumsiness or coordination problems.
While there is no cure for Asperger’s syndrome, behavioral therapy is often a critical part of the treatment plan and can help the child develop social and language skills. Parents and siblings of children suffering from Asperger’s can also benefit from therapy to help them develop healthy and supportive ways of coping.
