What is Asperger's?
Asperger's is considered a pervasive developmental disorder at the higher-functioning end of the Autism Spectrum. It is characterized by sustained impairment in social interaction and the development of restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, activities, and interests. In contrast to Autism, there are no obvious delays in language or cognitive development, or in age-appropriate self-help skills and adaptive behaviors although there are subtle impairments.
