Aspergers Syndrome: On The Autism Spectrum
For autism awareness month I wanted to bring awarenss to a less well known syndrome that is on the autism spectrum. This syndrome is called Asperger's Syndrome - also known as high level autism. I found a great article written by a woman (Lynne Soraya) who says she always felt different but never quite knew why until she came across an article called "The Geek Syndrome".
After learning about Asperger's for herself she shares her thoughts on what it means to have Asperger's Syndrome, how it affects a person's interaction with their world, and what are the specific challenges a child or an adult with Asperger's faces. She writes:
"In general, people with Asperger’s generally have trouble with social interaction, communication, as well as regulation of the motor skills and sensory systems.They also can develop obsessive and compulsive tendencies, which manifest themselves in various ways."
Lynne then goes in depth about their social challenges, their verbal communication, their interests and obsessions, and also their sensory and motor challenges. You can read her entire article here: What Does It Mean To Have Asperger Syndrome?
