RUNNING HEAD: Asperger Syndrome 2 Asperger Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that can interfere with a child’s learning abilities and communication skills. These disorders are called spectrum disorders because the symptoms of each range in various stages of severity, and the same diagnosis can affect people differently. While autism is oftentimes diagnosed because the child fails to communicate at all, Asperger Syndrome children usually have a full vocabulary, making the diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome more difficult. Many times the child is labeled rude or immature when in all actuality; they are actually living with Asperger Syndrome. Many children with Asperger Syndrome manifest symptoms by their third birthday, but some children can show signs of this disorder in early infancy stages. Delays in important motor milestones such as crawling or walking are early signs of Asperger Syndrome. Deficits in social relatedness and repetitive interests and activities are the later signs of Asperger Syndrome. The most common age of diagnoses for Asperger Syndrome is typically between the ages of five to nine when signs and symptoms become more apparent.
