    Asperger’s syndrome, also called Asperger’s disorder, is a type of pervasive developmental disorder (PDD). Asperger’s syndrome was named for the Austrian doctor, Hans Asperger, who first described the disorder in 1944. PDDs are a group of conditions that involve delays in the development of many basic skills, most notably the ability to socialize with others, to communicate, and to use imagination.Although Asperger’s syndrome is similar in some ways to autism — another, more severe type of PDD — there are some important differences. Children with Asperger’s syndrome typically function better than do those with autism. In addition, children with Asperger’s syndrome generally have normal intelligence and near-normal language development, although Aspergers Symptomsthey may develop problems communicating as they get older. Autism is often described as a ‘spectrum disorder’ because the condition affects people in many different ways and to varying degrees. Asperger’s syndrome has only recently been recognized as a unique disorder. For that reason, the exact number of people with the disorder is unknown. While it is more common than autism, estimates for the United States and Canada range from 1 in every 250 children to 1 in every 10,000. It is four times more likely to occur males than in females and usually is first diagnosed in children between the ages of 2 and 6 years. Asperger’s may engage in long-winded, one-sided conversations without noticing or caring about the listener’s interest. They also often lack usual nonverbal communication skills, such as engaging in eye contact with others they’re talking to, or failing to react and empathize with other people’s stories and conversation. This may make them seem insensitive, although that is rarely the case. They may have a hard time “reading” other people or understanding humor.

    What Causes Autism And Its Spectrum Of Disorders Among Children?There seems to be a lot of speculations as to find What Causes Autism as the symptoms of autism varies from individual to individuals. Some of the affected persons especially kids talk early while others cannot talk at all. Similarly some are found to be highly intelligent while other have some degree of mental disorder.Sir Isaac Newton is believed to be affected by autism which proves these statements are found to be correct. The list of these contradictions goes on.  Among many other variations observed here the issue of core deficit seems to be the only common symptom seen in all these autistic individuals seen across the globe.autistic spectrum disordersWhat Causes Autism Spectrum Disorders?In general autism and its other associated disorders occur mainly due to a neurological condition of the individuals. According to one medical school of thought that autism seems to be occurring due to the weakened area of the pathway from the prefrontal cortex to the hippocampus of the human brain.However no one can surely say this is the main cause of the autism which starts in the childhood. According to the medical research the aforesaid weakened pathway is the result of the following core deficits.The core deficits can be seen due to, a comparative though and interpretation, flexibility and adaptability to change, unique and creative thought decisiveness, predictability and the remembrance of the positive feeling of the past events and so on. This list seems to be endless as no one can judge the ability and nature of the human thoughts. These said conditions are the key attributes seems to the some of the best answers to the question on What Causes Autism and its other associated mental disorders.Slower development is quite visible with the autistic kids than in the normal kids. For most of us “What Causes Autism?” a common question often asked. Medical experts say that these autistic children are born with extra chromosome unlike the normal individuals who have 46 chromosomes.  In general a child receives 23 chromosomes from each of the parent resulting 46 chromosomes. However an autistic kid receives 47 chromosomes. However this theory is a debatable issue even among the medical experts across the globe.

    While my problem was and still sufer/gain from dyslexia Transcendental Meditation helped me cope with my condition as young adult many decadeses ago though always thought it would of been better if had learnt TM as an adolescent.  Seems per this mother story per her words and video TM also helps Aspergers to.  Also continued progress of this boy at start of “Autism Meditation and Stress” on YouTube though also includes other examples and experts. Hope helps. Bill Smith, Aberdeen

    As soon as we meet a person we make judgements about them. From their facial expression, tone of voice and body language we can usually tell whether they are happy, angry or sad and respond accordingly.People with Asperger syndrome can find it harder to read the signals that most of us take for granted. This means they find it more difficult to communicate and interact with others which can often lead to high levels of anxiety and confusion.Asperger syndrome is described as a pervasive developmental condition that falls within the autistic spectrum. It is a lifelong condition, affecting about 1 in 200 people and is more commonly found in men than women.Asperger syndrome is most definitely not caused by a person’s upbringing, their social circumstances and is not the fault of the individual with the condition and should not be confused with conduct disorder.There is currently no ’cure’ and no specific treatment for Aspergers syndrome. Children with Asperger syndrome become adults with Asperger syndrome. However, as our understanding of the condition improves and services continue to develop, people with Asperger syndrome have more opportunity than ever of reaching their full potential.Asperger syndrome shares some similarities with autism, however people with Asperger syndrome generally do not experience the same language and cognitive delays or other learning disabilities normally associated with autism. Instead, people with the condition experience difficulties in the areas of social imagination, social communication and social interaction.
