Today I bought something different, but definitely useful information. You may not believe that there is such a syndrome. Yes it’s nothing but Asperger’s syndrome. These kids use language on a several forms to communicate, but have good language skills. They have lack of interest. Those people with Asperger’s syndrome are termed as Asperger’s. In simple words, this condition is a developmental disorder and not a diseased condition. If you take eighty eight children in above age of 8, then there would be 1 child with this condition, many of us might not come across this Asperger’s syndrome, it’s unaware by public, but we need to know about this syndrome. It too closely related to autism symptoms, when a person affected with this Asperger’s symptoms, then there will changes in his behaviour, interaction with other people and the interest of him. A total difference from a normal person.
It is wide range of condition that several people with this syndrome may tend to exist various symptoms, difference in symptoms are commonly seen among one person to other one. Support or attention towards these people is compulsory. Still now what is the real cause for this syndrome is not yet found, but genetic history might also reflect a little in developing this condition.
Signs of Asperger’s Syndrome
There will be communication issues found on them, they can’t interact socially with others. The language skills of this condition person are up to the mark, but they find difficult to understand others conversation and tends little abnormal in it. These people have higher sensitivity to sound, light and fragrance. They perform repeating movements like flicking fingers, flapping their hands etc. They sometime remains like not sensitive and many times as sensitive in nature. They found hard to make friendship with others.
Symptoms of Asperger’s Syndrome
This condition people have very low skills on writing, difficulty to understand academics. Executive functions are less among them. Sensory difficulties are seen on them. The Asperger’s have low concentration power. Appearance wise they may look like normal, but generally they are really abnormal. In a conversation they tend hard to speak out their emotions to other person. The eye contact of the Asperger’s will be abnormal. When we call them by their names, they may not turn at all. To point out they fail to use gestures. Their tone will be odd. When seeing huge groups, they find nervous. They prefer to be alone. Remain clumsy always.
Ways to diagnose Asperger’s syndrome
A complete assessment of their behaviour, health and development is done, along with checking for their signs and symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome. Language skills are tested. It is slightly difficult to diagnose Asperger’s syndrome because of it is closely related to autism disorder. Hearing impairment is tested. Genetic assessment is done. Neurological functions are tested, IQ of the child are tested to check their cognitive function. During communication of the child, gestures are checked.
Treating Asperger’s Syndrome
There is no proper treatment found for this Asperger’s syndrome, but when proper medical attention is given to them, the communication skills, social activity can be improved. Also depression can be lowered on them by giving opt counselling to them psychologically and also lowering their anxiety level will make them to interact to others very easily in a friendly atmosphere. Behaviour has to be modified on Asperger’s. Speech therapy is given, occupational treatment along with physical therapy are given. Special education is provided for these special type persons. Medicines also play an important in their depression alleviation. Therapy to improve their social skills is given to them. Classes with good support assist them well.

This mindset to be present in all Asperger’s kids parents. Need not worry, he can definitely shine much better and will definitely come as a strong person with good mental abilities.
