The difficulty in responding socially through empathy has a significant impact on the social life of any person with Asperger's syndrome, which is nothing more than another name given to autism.
What is Asperger's Syndrome?
It is a neurobiological disorder that affects communication and social interaction of people, this disorder totally changes the way the person perceives the world and other people around.
People who have "asperger", have great difficulty in communication and sensitivity, being characterized by difficulties in social interaction, with repetitive behavior, restriction of activities and interests, as they have an obsessive interest in a particular subject or object, but without delays in language development, the presence of difficulties with social communication is more common.
The signs usually begin to manifest before the age of two and in most cases accompany the person throughout their lives. It is more common in male than female children, and it is worth mentioning that Asperger's Syndrome is not related to factors such as childhood abuse and emotional deprivation.
It is important to remember that the syndrome has no cure, but it is not a disease, it affects even more the social life and the sooner the diagnosis is made, the better the chance of the child to adapt to the social life.
According to studies, people with Asperger's Syndrome have average or above average intelligence. And, they generally do not have learning disabilities that many autistic people do, but they may have specific learning disabilities. They have fewer problems with speech, but may still have difficulties in understanding and processing the language.
People with Asperger's Syndrome see the world in a different way, but they do not look “disabled”, most of the time they are just misunderstood, poetry talks only about things they are interested in, even if others do not like these subjects, often they are bullied.
Intelligence that draws attention, in fact, some have intellectual skills that draw attention, but their biggest challenge is coexistence.
