Aspergers Syndrome

Aspergers Syndrome used to be considered separate from ASD. The main differences was that these individuals are very verbal and have normal to high IQs, but have social difficulties/impairments, and may have more neurological issues. These individuals sometimes could go undiagnosed until they were older, since common symptoms of Autism may not be present or as obvious enough for families to seek diagnosis for their loved ones. Aspergers Syndrome is now a part of the ASD in the DSM- V.
