What Is Asperger Syndrome?

Asperger Syndrome 1 of 9

Asperger Syndrome (AS) is an autism spectrum disorder that affects the way the brain processes information.

AS is characterized as a hidden disability because many people who are afflicted struggle with areas of communication and social skills, even though little would be telling on the surface. All individuals with Asperger Syndrome have emotional delays, but developmental growth continues for a lifetime.
