What Is Asperger’s Syndrome?

April 24, 2019

kids photoAsperger’s syndrome is a developmental disorder that is associated with autism. People with Asperger’s syndrome have difficulties communicating and interacting with others because they do not understand acceptable social conventions.

People with Asperger’s usually want to socialize with others, but they don’t know how to express emotions appropriately, which often leads to confusion, self-doubt, anxiety, and isolation. They tend to use inappropriate, repetitive gestures and avoid eye contact with others.

Asperger’s is not related to intelligence

As with dyslexia, Asperger’s is not related to intelligence. In fact, most people who have Asperger’s have average or above-average IQs. Unlike those with dyslexia, however, those who have Asperger’s do not have problems with language skills.
