Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger´s syndrome, Asperger disorder (AD) or simply Asperger´s, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Many people are afflicted with and suffer from Asperger´s, and there is little to no understanding by the general public in regards to this syndrome. There is a lack of awareness, so when people encounter someone who has Asperger´s they view them strangely because aspies (as they commonly refer to themselves) act and communicate differently from the rest of society, so they are easily misunderstood. In his book entitled Asperger Syndrome, author and Asperger expert Frank Ryan offers a comprehensive guide for understanding, living with, and treating Asperger syndrome.Here are some of the topics covered: Detailed overview and history of Asperger syndromeEffects of the syndrome on social interactions Effects of the syndrome on behavior and interests Effects of the syndrome on speech and language Effects of the syndrome on motor and sensory perception Therapies and medication Alternative therapies and treatments Available aids Children who suffer from Asperger Adults who suffer from Asperger How to deal with and manage a loved one who has Asperger And much more 1.

For a long time, it was assumed that a genetic disposition such as trisomy 21 enables predictions to be made about overall personality development. But, who could have ever imagined that people with trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) would also be capable of earning a university degree? We studied 1,294 people with trisomy 21. The results showed that people with trisomy 21 benefit more from abstract learning than their neurotypical counterparts. Two-year-olds with the syndrome first learn to read and only then to speak and will understand algebra better than arithmetic. Ignorance of neurodiversity inevitably leads to learning difficulties when these people are forced to learn at the same pace as others. This applies to autism and trisomy 21 to the same extent. That is why this book advocates the recognition of trisomy 21 as a variant in the spectrum of human neurodiversity.
