Asperger’s Syndrome is a neurological condition. Young persons with this illness have a hard time socially relating to others. Their behavior and thought processes might often be inflexible and repetitive.
In general, children and teenagers with Asperger’s Syndrome can communicate with others and do well in school. They struggle with social settings and nuanced types of communication like body language, humor, and sarcasm. They may also spend a lot of time thinking and talking about a single topic or passion, or only wish to pursue a limited number of activities. Instead of providing a healthy social or recreational outlet for the individual, these activities might become obsessive and interfere with daily living.
Read on to find out the most common symptoms of Asperger’s Syndrome.
1. Inappropriate or Minimal Social Interactions
Persons with Asperger’s syndrome, like people with autism, have a difficult time understanding what is going on in social situations. They don’t always pay attention to the social environment they’re in, and even when they do, they’re often unable to make sense of what they’re seeing or respond properly.
They may be able to accurately characterize other people’s feelings, expected intents, and social customs in a cognitive and frequently formalistic manner; yet, they are unable to act on this information in an intuitive and spontaneous manner, therefore losing the pace of the conversation. Their emphasis on formalistic standards of behavior and strict social conventions is accompanied by weak intuition and a lack of spontaneous adaptability.
