I understand Aspergers is a form of autism- But how does it differ?

Aspergers is also described as an autism spectrum disorder, in that it shares many of the same characteristics of more “classical” autism.

Although they are both on the same continuum there are definite differences between children with Aspergers Syndrome and Autism.

You can see this in their social interactions, language and development over time.

High Functioning Autism is very much like Aspergers Syndrome except that the professionals seem to apply that diagnosis to children who were non-verbal when they were younger.

Because people with Aspergers Syndrome usually do not have delayed language they are usually considered to be at the higher end of the autistic spectrum (also can be known as higher functioning).

Children with Aspergers have a number of indicators which are outlined below:-

●Aspergers is much more common in boys than in girls. In fact the boy to girl ratio is about 10 boys to each girl.

●People with Aspergers have problems with social skills, have difficulties with transitions or changes and prefer things to be the same.

●They often have obsessive routines and may be preoccupied with a particular subject of interest.

●They have trouble understanding nonverbal cues (such as body language) and often a person with Aspergers has difficulty understanding proper body space (or “personal space”).

●They may also be overly sensitive to sounds, tastes, smells, and sights.

It's important to remember that the person with Aspergers sees the world very differently.
