ASPERGER’S Syndrome is one of many forms of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
These are the signs somebody you know may have Asperger’s, as well as some of the famous individuals who live with the condition.
What are the signs of Asperger’s Syndrome?
Asperger’s Syndrome is a lifelong developmental disability which affects how people see the world and interact with others.
It’s often referred to as ‘mild autism’ – and affects around 700,000 people in the UK (more than one in 100).
The main difference between it and autism is that people with Asperger’s don’t have a learning disability, and do not have any developmental or intellectual delays.
In fact, those with Asperger’s are normally of average or above average intelligence.
Most kids with Asperger’s go to mainstream schools, but a diagnosis is important so their learning can be targeted properly.
Common signs of Asperger’s Syndrome in children include avoiding eye contact, and preferring to play alone or with adults – instead of joining in with other kids.
