    Asperger’s Syndrome is one of the autism spectrum disorders. It is characterised by the person having normal verbal abilities (speech is not delayed), although how they use these verbal abilities might be considered unusual (they might speak only in a monotone or talk at length but only about their favourite subjects).

    Asperger’s Syndrome shares many of the features of the other ASDs, including the problems with social integration and empathy, and restricted, repetitive behaviours. Children with Asperger’s Syndrome have average or above average intelligence, but may have a learning disability or other comorbid condition.”
