Asperger's syndrome, also known as high-functioning autism, is a developmental disorder that affects communication and social interaction skills. It is typically diagnosed in childhood and is more common in males than females.
People with Asperger's syndrome may have difficulty with nonverbal communication, social cues, and may have obsessive interests or routines. They may also have sensory sensitivities, such as being overly sensitive to loud noises or certain textures.
With early diagnosis and appropriate interventions, individuals with Asperger's syndrome can learn to manage their symptoms and lead fulfilling lives.
