Asperger syndrome is a condition which cannot be 'cured'. People who suffer from this condition often are average or above-average intelligence although they still have learning difficulties. Unlike Autism, they less likely to develop speech problem but prone to difficulties understanding and processing language.
The condition profile was developed in the 1980s by Lorna Wing who based her work on the 1944 study carried by the Austrian paediatrician Hans Asperger. In recent years with new evidence concerning Dr Asperger
support of the Nazi Regime started a debate which is raging with reference to his work.
People with Asperger syndrome see, hear and sample the world differently to other people. Often people feel that Asperger syndrome is a fundamental aspect of their identity.
Autism is a spectrum condition. All autistic people share certain difficulties, but being autistic will affect them in different ways.
Some people with Asperger syndrome also have mental health issues or other conditions, meaning people need different levels and types of support. People with Asperger syndrome are of average or above-average intelligence. They don't have the learning disabilities that many autistic people have, but they may have specific learning difficulties.
With the right sort of support, all can be helped to live a more fulfilling life of their own choosing.
