Asperger’s syndrome is named after a Viennese pediatrician, Hans Asperger, who in 1944 gave an initial description of a set of patterns of behavior that was apparent in some of his patients, mainly males. Hans realized that even though some of his male patients had normal language development and intelligence, their social skills were severely impaired. They also exhibited poor coordination and were incapable of communicating effectively with others (KidsHealth 1). According to WebMD (1), the number of persons suffering from Asperger’s syndrome is unknown, though it is estimated that out of every 1000 kids, 2 to 6 of them have the disorder.
Additionally, boys are 3 to 4 times more likely to suffer from AS than girls. Similar to other autism spectrum disorders, Asperger’s syndrome is normally hard to diagnose and treat. Initial diagnosis of this disorder in children happens between the age of two and six years. Asperger’s syndrome is distinguished by poor or improper social interactions, odd speech patterns, as well as an obsession with a single subject (Kieran and Kieran 31-34). Children with this disorder show few facial expressions and find it difficult to read others’ body language. In addition, they might involve themselves in obsessive routines, as well as, become unusually sensitive to sensory stimuli for instance. they might choose to wear clothes made from only a specific material or be bothered by sounds within their surrounding to the extent that they block their ears. .
