Asperger’s syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is part of the autism spectrum, although it is less severe. The condition is generally characterized by difficulties related to social interactions and nonverbal communication, without affecting intelligence or language.
Studies show that neurological alteration can occur during fetal development, and primarily affects areas associated with behavior and thinking. However, scientists have not yet come to conclusions on this topic. There is also no consensus on the causes of the syndrome which may have a genetic background.
Interpreting other people’s facial expressions or the appearance or gestures of other people is a challenge for most patients with the syndrome. Since there is also a certain difficulty deciphering the non-verbal cues that the interlocutor provides, such as fatigue or lack of interest, those with this condition can talk about the same topic for a long time or change the direction of conversation abruptly. As a result, they run the risk of being seen as a little out of society.
Another trait is focus and deep interest in certain topics, as well as attachment to routine. Some people with Asperger’s syndrome may be hypersensitive to stimuli, such as bright light and loud sounds. Since there are usually no physical symptoms, the diagnosis is made based on clinical consultations.
A list of treatments is often used to treat the syndrome. Behavioral psychology techniques are among the most popular behavioral psychology techniques.
More than 37 million people have been diagnosed with Asperger’s disease worldwide. Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, and Tim Burton are some of the famous carriers. Scientists believe that Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and the painter Vincent Van Gogh suffered from the condition.
The syndrome was first recognized in 1944 by Austrian physician Hans Asperger, who noticed significant deficits in nonverbal communication in children and other behavioral symptoms. But it took some time for the diagnosis, which is complex, to become commonplace, which is what it has done in the past 30 years
