Asperger Syndrome is a disorder on the Autism Spectrum that consists of communication and social interaction problems. Often the people who have this disorder are sometimes just seen as ‘odd’ or ‘nerdy’ and socially inept.
Some of the key symptoms of AS are:
aloofness, flat facial expression, lack of fear, lack of common sense, socially awkward, poor social judgment skills, and inappropriate social interactions.
Four times as many males than females have this disorder.
AS varies from person to person and is often difficult to diagnose. Depending on the range of the disorder a person can easily lead a normal life.
