Asperger’s Syndrome

Asperger’s Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that many consider to be a higher-functioning form of autism. The symptoms and severity of Asperger’s disorder vary greatly, but some of the more common symptoms include: difficulty with social interaction, restricted range of interests and/or repetitive behaviors and delayed motor development, like clumsiness or uncoordinated body movements. While there is no cure for Asperger’s Syndrome, many therapies are available, proving to be helpful in treating those with everyday difficulties. Treatment ranges from behavioral therapies to basic social interaction and self-esteem building.
