Asperger syndrome is one of several previously separate subtypes of autism that were folded into the single diagnosis autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with the publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual in 2013.
- Autism is a spectrum disorder. It is very hard to predict what cluster of behaviors/characteristics may define the disorder for any given child.
- While Asperger’s is generally used to identify students with high-functioning autism, this is a broad category.
- Students with Asperger’s Syndrome can benefit from Different Like Me clubs, that allow them to socialize with similar children with minimal adult intervention.
- Many students with Asperger’s have surprising insight into their own struggles and great ideas for helping them.
