Asperger's syndrome is clinically categorized as a mild form of autism. Its symptoms include difficulties with social action and sensory reception, and it's more common in males than females. With early diagnosis, behavioral therapy helps in many cases. Anyone showing these symptoms may have Asperger's syndrome.
Those with Asperger's syndrome have underdeveloped social skills. They are sometimes unable to friendships, especially with peers. Many people with Asperger's instead befriend people who are younger or older. They may have difficulty behaving in a socially appropriate manner. Having conversations with people they don't know is especially challenging for them.
