Asperger's Syndrome: An Overview

Diagnosis and prognosis for students with Asperger's Syndrome

Find a list of schools  

Asperger's Syndrome is a variant within the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) characterised by repetitive patterns of interest and behaviour and difficulties with socializing.

It is considered mild autism because Asperger's sufferers are able to function well enough linguistically and cognitively. Some other characteristics sometimes seen as symptomatic of Asperger's are physical clumsiness and atypical use of speech and language.

This includes a high degree of literalism, poor ability to small talk and "obsession" with narrow conversation topics. 

Asperger's Syndrome (sometimes abbreviated AS) is named after Hans Asperger, an Austrian pediatrician who first described symptomatic children in a 1944 paper.

While diagnosis is essentially standardized today, there is no small amount of controversy surrounding aspects of the disorder. Some even argue that it is no different from high functioning autism (HFA). The scale of autism spectrum disorders is a relatively new concept in diagnosis as well.

In 2010, the journal Nature published a study showing that there are scores of genes related to the formation of autism; individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders do not share common mutations at all and instead have unique and varied genomes. 

One conclusion of the study was that underlying genetic determinants of autism are still largely unknown. Suffice it to say that there remains much about autism and Asperger's Syndrome that is poorly understood.

Screening and Diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome

Parents of children with Asperger's Syndrome can sometimes detect symptoms as early as 30 months although a percentage of children remain undiagnosed until grade school. Diagnosis of AS is also complicated by the fact that no reliable screening method distinguished Asperger's from other diagnosis in the Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Therapies have been shown to have some effect on mitigating symptoms of Asperger's. These therapies are quite often grouped and may include any or all of the following: training social skills, cognitive behaviour therapy, medications, speech therapy, occupational therapy, others, all depending on the severity of the diagnosis, medical practice and disposition of parents, among other things.

Childhood symptoms of Asperger's

Parents who are keenly aware of their children may become aware of some symptoms early in childhood while in some cases, symptoms of Asperger's may only be apparent in early school. These are factors indicating children with Asperger's Syndrome:

  • Lack of basic social skills such as focused conversational abilities, awareness of body language or ability to follow conversation.
  • Diminished capacity for or complete lack of empathy
  • Inability to understand humour due to over-literal interpretation of speech
  • Monotone in conversation
  • Tendency to ramble or speak in monologues.
  • Unusual interests resulting in highly detailed knowledge of unusual topics
  • Lack of ability to adapt to new situations
  • Lack of eye contact
  • Delayed motor development in use of utensils or handwriting
  • Overreaction to loud noises or bright lights.

Children with Asperger's Syndrome tend to try to socialize more than autism sufferers; they are not withdrawn.

Symptoms of Asperger's in teen years

Whether they are diagnosed or not, teenagers with Asperger's will have found some ways of adapting their behaviour to fit in. Teens with Asperger's Syndrome may find this draining and may find themselves an easy target for bullies as their behaviour will be explicitly out of the ordinary and not "cool." They will have difficulty in reading others' behaviour and this may contribute to social problems.

Many aspects of symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome help people succeed very well. Famous people who are believe to have had symptoms of Asperger's include Albert Einstein, Mozart and Thomas Jefferson. Today there are many successful people in business and culture who have Asperger's to one degree or another.

Long term prognosis

Some evidence indicates that as many as one in five children with Asperger's grow out of it or at least learn to manage symptoms and behaviours on their own as they grow into adulthood.

Some argue that there really is no disorder and that all descriptions of it are merely a description of a distinct learning style or unique mode of being. Our understanding of Asperger's, and many other forms of cognitive or learning impairments, might in fact be compared to previous generations' notions of gender and sexuality.

Regardless of current medical opinion (which varies widely) there are schools and institutions that have develop a deeper understanding of Asperger's Syndrome, its manifestations and they are trained and equipped to help children who have been diagnosed with Asperger's.

Listed below are schools and preschools who welcome students with Asperger's and offer extra help and support in integrating sufferers into the classroom and school life.

Information here is not intended to replace the advice of medical professionals. We encourage any parent who suspects their child exhibits symptoms of Asperger's to seek professional guidance.
