Understanding Asperger Syndrome

My Son DJ has Asperger Syndrome

Children with Asperger's Syndrome have "neurological problems", which causes them to "displayautistic behaviors". This neurological disorder is named after" Hans Asperger, a Viennese physician", who discovered the disorder in "1944". But, it wasn't until "1994", when the disorder was added to the "DSM IV", which list all mental disorders. Many parents and physicians have noticed the symptoms more in the recent years. Usually, the children will have a "normal intelligence level or language development".

However, they can exhibit symptoms that are mild to severe, which can cause stress on the entire family. Children with Asperger's Syndrome may have trouble in social situations and will not react well to change. Many "characteristics" begin showing up, usually before the age of five or younger. Some children may prefer "doing the same things": like eating the "same food", play with same toys, or watch the same movie over and over.
