|Symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome
Asperger's Syndrome is a form of autism, a condition which affects the way a person communicates and relates to others.
People with Asperger's Syndrome have difficulty in communicating and with social relationships, and exhibit a lack of imagination and creative play. They have fewer problems with language compared with those with autism, and do not usually have the accompanying learning difficulties associated with autism.
