Asperger’s syndrome is a developmental disorder characterized by limited facial expressions, generally those associated with anger and misery. It is a non-advanced, high-functioning form of autism and is generally marked by above-average intelligence, obstructive and monotonous patterns of activities, and compromised social skills.
Those with Asperger’s syndrome are normally living in their own world and are introverted. Because of this, those who do not understand his/her condition may perceive them as rude or selfish.
Most people with Asperger’s syndromes lead normal lives. Youths who suffer from Asperger’s syndrome may be stressed and depressed leading to behaviors such as substance abuse and violent outbursts. Therapy can help them learn social skills and emotional expressions that will allow them to cope better as adults.
