An individual having Asperger's syndrome shows a stereotypical behavioral pattern while associating with other people.However, it is difficult to detect this syndrome in adults at first glance, since the signs exhibited by this condition are not quite evident.Symptoms The symptoms of Asperger's syndrome can be present during childhood, but in many cases, they tend to surface only in adulthood.The symptoms may be mild or severe, depending on the affected individual's age. Difficulty with Social Communication People with Asperger's syndrome generally find it difficult to understand others and express themselves.Those with aspergers can especially struggle due to the inability to participate well in ‘small talk’ and general, every day conversation.The difficulty with understanding jokes and abstract concepts can also make communications within a relationship somewhat harder than the average relationship.
It is true that aspies may have more difficulties than some, but the fact remains that every person who has friends or is in a relationship sometimes find it hard to get on and communicate well with the other party or parties.They may have difficulty in interpreting gestures, facial expressions and change of tone.They are usually at a loss while choosing a topic to speak on, and do not know when to start or end a conversation.We have hope and we are excited and we are thankful for your book.Dawn Dunn I hope this reaches out to those who have young ones with Aspergers for this will help answers those "whys and why nots".
