Asperger’s syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder on the autism spectrum. Children with Asperger’s may experience a range of challenges, which can be mild or severe. They may experience communication issues, such as difficulty with the interpretation of body language and facial expressions. It’s common for a child with Asperger’s to misinterpret social cues and to become highly focused on one narrow topic of interest.
