Asperger’s is a neurobiological condition. This means that it is a genetic condition, and that there are biological differences in the brain.
One of the best ways to describe Asperger’s is that it is an autism with some neurobiological characteristics.
The neurobiological characteristics of Asperger’s are as follows:
- Asperger’s is a condition in which people are pre-occupied with rules and routine.
- Autism is a condition in which a person has trouble relating to others and communicating effectively.
- Asperger’s is characterized by rigid routines and obsessive interests.
- Asperger’s people tend to be “selfish” and don’t notice others.
- Asperger’s is characterized by having a preoccupation with one person.
People with Asperger’s are often extremely focused on themselves, and don’t notice or care about others.
For example, an autistic person might be preoccupied with their favorite food, or their favorite activity. The person might then spend all their time doing this activity, and ignore others around them.
In contrast, an Asperger’s person typically focuses on one person. This person might be very concerned about the other person, and they would ignore the person who they are speaking to.
Asperger’s people are also often “selfish.” They can be very focused on their own interests. They may do things that are simply not in their best interest, such as spending an hour doing nothing, or taking a long time to get dressed.
However, when it comes to their friends, the person with Asperger’s is generally “selfless.” They are often kind and caring toward others, but they do not notice or care about other people as much.
People with Asperger’s focus on their own interests, and will not notice others.
Asperger’s and autism are often confused with each other. However, there are some significant differences between the two conditions.
For example, people with Asperger’s tend to have “high-functioning” autism. This means that they may be able to function in some areas, but not others.
In contrast, people with high-functioning autism often have a “low-functioning” Asperger’s. They are not always able to perform well in school, and they may be socially awkward.
However, people with low-functioning autism may also have Asperger’s. Some research suggests that the two conditions may share some characteristics, including problems with attention.
Asperger’s and autism are not the same. They are different conditions. There are many people with Asperger’s who do not have autism.
For example, there are many people with Asperger’s who are very intelligent. They may even be experts in their field. These people will often be able to help autistic people.
However, there are many people with Asperger’s who do not have autism. They may be able to communicate with others, but they may not be able to function in some areas.
For example, a person with Asperger’s might not be able to function in a job in which they are expected to sit still, or to make a lot of decisions. They may have to sit alone and work on projects alone.
This is because Asperger’s is a neurobiological condition, not a psychological condition.
The above is just one of the many differences between Asperger’s and autism.
If you think that your child may have Asperger’s, it is important to get an autism evaluation.
This is because an autism evaluation is a comprehensive evaluation. It will include a psychological evaluation, a neuropsychological evaluation, and a neurophysiological assessment.
This means that your child will be evaluated by several different mental health professionals. Many of these professionals may not be familiar with Asperger’s.
However, you can check out the Autism Speaks website for a list of mental health professionals that are experienced in Asperger’s evaluations.
The neurobiological characteristics of Asperger’s are not the sole reason why people with Asperger’s are often overlooked.
It is very important to be aware of the fact that many people with Asperger’s are not diagnosed.
This is why it is important to get an autism evaluation. An autism evaluation should be able to identify the specific characteristics that make someone with Aspergers different.

What is autism?
Autism is a neurological condition. It is a group of developmental disorders that affect how a person communicates and behaves.
Autism is a complex condition. It is characterized by a preoccupation with rules and routines. This preoccupation with rules and routines may lead to problems with social interaction.
The autistic person may also not enjoy talking to others, and may not notice or care about what others are saying, and may not be able to understand sarcasm or irony.
Autism is often confused with Asperger’s syndrome. However, there are some significant differences between the two conditions.
For example, the symptoms of autism are often less severe than those of Asperger’s.
For example, someone with Asperger’s may not enjoy talking to others, and may not get along with others. However, someone with autism may have the opposite symptoms.
Autism is a neurological condition, and not a psychological condition.
For example, people with autism may be preoccupied with certain things, such as food, or certain activities, such as playing video games. This preoccupation may prevent them from interacting with others.
However, someone with Asperger’s may have a different preoccupation. They may not be preoccupied with food or games, but with the rules and routines that others follow.
When a person with autism gets anxious, they may worry about things that they may not have any control over.
People with Asperger’s may have different anxieties. They may worry a lot about things that they have little control over.
This is because they are self-focused. They may not notice or care about other people.
People with Asperger’s are often selfless. They are often kind, caring toward others, but they do not notice or care about other people as much.
People with autism may also have different anxieties. They may be preoccupied with rules and routines, and may need a lot of reassurance from others.
However, someone with Asperger’s may not need a lot of reassurance. They may just need to be reassured about things that they have no control over.
What causes autism?
Many people with autism are born with a genetic condition called Fragile X syndrome. This syndrome is associated with autism. However, it is not clear whether this is the cause of autism.
The following are some of the possible causes of autism:
- Low birth weight
- Maternal infection during pregnancy
- Maternal smoking during pregnancy
- Exposure to environmental toxins in the womb
- Exposure to viral infections
- Exposure to certain medications in the womb
What is Asperger’s syndrome?
Asperger’s syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder. It affects how a person communicates and behaves.
The symptoms of Asperger’s are often less severe than those of autism. However, Asperger’s is a neurobiological condition, and not a psychological condition.
For example, someone with Asperger’s may be preoccupied with rules and routines. This means that they may be unable to recognize sarcasm or irony. They may also not have the social skills needed to interact with others.
Asperger’s is an autism diagnosis that encompasses a range of conditions. It is not an autism diagnosis that only involves social and communication difficulties.
An autism diagnosis is based on the following characteristics:
- A lot of “self-focus.”
- A preoccupation with one person.
- Problems with social interaction, or relating to others
- Problems with attention and focus
Some people with Asperger’s may have a combination of these characteristics. However, they are not the only people with Asperger’s.
If your child has some of these characteristics, they may have Asperger’s. However, they may not have Asperger’s.
It is important to see a qualified mental health professional about your child. They will be able to evaluate your child and determine whether or not they have Asperger’s.
If they do have Asperger’s, they can then be diagnosed with Asperger’s.
