Asperger's Syndrome is a neurological, developmental disorder expressed mainly by social and emotional difficulties. The syndrome, first described in 1944 by Dr. Hans Asperger, an Austrian pediatrician, is characterized by social difficulties, communication difficulties, excessive focus on narrow areas of interest, motor clumsiness and unusual sensory responses. Those with AS have normal or sometimes higher than average intelligence, good verbal abilities and an excellent memory for details; however, there is a significant gap between these abilities and the person's daily functioning. The DSM-5, from 2013, defines Asperger's Syndrome under the general name ASD - Autistic Spectrum Disorder (autism spectrum). This page deals with the rights and services for people with Asperger's Syndrome. Comprehensive information about rights can be found on the Autism portal page.
