Asperger Syndrome

Children with Asperger syndrome have milder symptoms that affect social interaction and behaviour. Their language development is usually unaffected, although they often have problems in certain areas of language. For example, understanding humour or figures of speech, such as 'she’s got a chip on her shoulder' or 'it's raining cats and dogs.' Children with Asperger syndrome usually have above-average intelligence. Some children are skilled in fields requiring logic, memory and creativity, such as maths, computer science and music. (But only 1 in 200 children are exceptionally skilled, so-called 'autistic savants.') Children with AS are often severely affected by sensory processing and this is often overlooked during typical health assessments. Behaviour therefore is a big problem for these children who fear change and are often oversensitive by nature. Read about more diagnosed conditons
