Asperger's Syndrome Definition

Definition

Asperger syndrome is one of the pervasive developmental disorders resulting in social and behavioral problems. Autism is another condition within this category. Asperger syndrome is viewed by some scientists as a distinct disease; others see it as a less severe type of autism. Children with Asperger syndrome usually have normal intelligence and do not have the language problems typical of autism.
