What Is Asperger’s Syndrome?
Asperger Syndrome, or Asperger’s, was once a term used to describe people with high-functioning autism. Over the past few years, the psychological community has done away with the phrasing and included it under the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Traditionally, a person who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome had strong verbal skills and intellectual abilities but lacked some social skills. Like most forms of ASD, this condition was also characterized by sensitivities to light and sound, uncoordinated movements, and difficulty understanding non-verbal cues.
