Developmental Disorders

Autism and Asperger Syndrome

Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder. People affected by Austism syndrome shows deficits in three primary areas:

  • Social interaction
  • Verbal and nonverbal communication
  • Repetitive behaviors or interests

Furthermore, people with autism will often have unusual responses to sensory experiences, such as certain sounds or the way objects look. Each of these symptoms ranges from mild to severe. They will present in each individual child differently.

Asperger Syndrome is a mild form of autism and is characterized by social impairment, isolation, and what others might see as eccentric behavior. Although people with Asperger’s are often self-described loners, they usually express great interest in making friends and meeting people. Unfortunately, their lack of interpersonal skills, odd facial expressions, insensitivity to other’s feelings and body language make forming relationships difficult.
