What is Asperger's Syndrome?
A person with Asperger's Syndrome are often intelligent indivduals that may know a lot of information on specific topics of interest. They are detail-oriented and have a unique perspective about things. They may have some social difficulties, such as having a hard time picking up on body language, giving eye contact, and/or having sensitivity to sound, light, or touch. Most importantly, each person is unique, so Asperger's Syndrome will look different from person to person.
