Asperger’s Disorder

Asperger’s Disorder, sometimes referred to as Asperger’s Syndrome, is similar to Autistic Disorder, except that verbal communication skills are usually relatively well preserved. Also, intelligence tends to be well preserved, and is often above average. However, aspects of non-verbal communication are often deficient. Asperger’s Disorder mirrors Autistic Disorder in that the more common neuropsychological strengths and weaknesses imply right, rather than left, hemisphere dysfunction.
