Human beings generally learn to watch people and figure out things about them. They observe their facial expressions, tone of voice, gestures, and other body language, which helps them guess whether the observed individuals are happy, angry, fearful, sad, and so on. This allows human beings to respond accordingly to others. Individuals with Asperger Syndrome (AS), however, find it much more difficult to figure out these signals, clues that you likely take for granted. Because of this, they find it more difficult to interact with others and communicate effectively with them. Naturally, this can lead to high levels of confusion and anxiety and stress. Asperger Syndrome or AS, is now being called a high form of functioning that falls within the Autism spectrum. More tomorrow.
