    I am definitely not an expert on Aspergers Syndrome, but I will tell you what information I know...Aspergers is a form of Autism. There are different types of autism, but children with asperger's have speech, language and cognitive development within the "normal" range. You may notice that this child has repetitive/ritualistic behaviors (he/she does not like to vary certain daily routines...etc.) Sometimes the term "high functioning autism" has been used to describe this group of children. They may have impairments in social functioning & communication patterns and motor functioning; have isolated special skills and circumscribed interests. Typically, individuals with Asperger's syndrome do not have clinically significant delays in language acquisition, cognitive development or self help skills.
