Asperger's Disorder was added to the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) in 1994 as a separate disorder from autism. However, there are still many professionals who consider Asperger's Disorder a less severe form of autism.

Someone with Asperger’s Syndrome may appear to have a flat, or blank expression much of the time, but this is more common in males with autism than it is in females. There may be non-verbal communication problems like difficulty reading/interpreting body language, tones of speech, and facial expressions.

Autistic people, including those with Asperger syndrome, often communicate differently. They may have difficulties with interpreting both verbal and non-verbal language like gestures or tone of voice, or it may take them a little longer to understand.

Many adults with an Asperger profile stumble upon the description of Asperger Syndrome or Autism Spectrum. They may read about it or be told by a family member or friend about the profile. Some may believe that the information matches their history and their current situation and, as a result, may self-diagnose.

Whether a person actually has a diagnosis of Asperger’s or experiences the same hurdles, the most difficult aspect of this way of being is the lack of understanding of the people around them. Therefore, some basic understanding in autism and Asperger’s Syndrome in the workplace is beneficial to all.

Asperger's Syndrome is part of the autism spectrum, and typically refers to people who are highly intelligent and "low-support," but have significant social difficulties. While Asperger's Syndrome is no longer recognized as a medical diagnosis in the psychiatric field, there still are a number of people who were previously diagnosed with Asperger's, or who identify as "Aspies."

However, upon prolonged and careful observation there may be physical traits or indicators that are present. The autistic individual will tend to have repetitive routines or rituals that may even appear obsessive in nature, and may display clumsiness and uncoordinated motor movements. You might notice speech and language peculiarities present such as hyperlexia (little professors), a ...

Remember that a person with Asperger’s Syndrome can be hypersensitive to touch, and that light touch may be even harder to handle than more forceful touch. He or she may not pick up automatically on your emotional and physical needs, or experience less of a need for closeness than you do. He or she may forget to express verbal affection as well.

Although Asperger’s syndrome was recognized as a high functioning form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, you need to remember your partner can be anywhere along that spectrum. Familiarizing yourself with Asperger’s syndrome can be helpful, as long as you combine it with familiarizing yourself with the person in front of you just the way you would when dating someone new.
