Asperger's Syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder, which is considered as a variance of autism by most people. Asperger’s individuals usually acquire language at an earlier age than autism, thus give a wrong impression that they have normal language development. In fact, language deficiency, in subtle aspects forms part of the feature of this syndrome. Similar to autism, they also have difficulty in understanding others’ mind and in social communication.

Features: In addition to the autism features, Asperger's individuals also display characteristics:

  • Initiative in conversation but is usually unable to form satisfactory social relationship due to their lack of understanding of others’ mind and social rules. They often encounter problems at school and being bullied is also common.
  • Problem in language use which is due to their lack of understanding and shallow interpretation of language concepts.
  • Emotions: Anxiety, aggression manifested as aggressive language or behaviors are common in some, but flat emotion is seen in others.

Treatment: Social cognition training with therapy directed to individual needs. Child psychotherapy is found to be an effective mean to reduce features for some individuals.
