Many of you are aware about Asperger’s and Autism diseases, these two are always consider similar. But it is not true these both are different in several factors.

Autism spectrum disorder

It is not necessary that all the children show same symptoms. In some cases symptoms are totally different. This is the reason it is consider as the a spectrum.

  • differences in processing sensory experience
  • deep and sustained interests
  • repetitive movements
  • establishing order

Asperger’s Syndrome

Earlier Asperger’s Syndrome was consider as a mild form of autism. This means that people who has asperger’s syndrome tends to experience symptoms of autism minimally. Asperger’s was first introduced into the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in 1994.

  • showing little to no response to social or emotional experiences
  • having a sustained interest in a single special topic or very few topics
  • strict adherence to routine or ritual behaviors
  • repetitive behaviors or movements

Difference between Autism Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome

These two are no longer consider as different diagnosis. They can be detect by interchanging tests. Many people consider Asperger’s as a part of their identity. This is still considering the stigma that still surrounds the autism diagnoses in many communities around the world.

Yet only difference between the two diagnoses is that people with Asperger’s may be consider having an easier time passing. As neurotypical with only mild signs and symptoms that may resemble those of autism.

And a diagnosis of autism doesn’t mean you or a love one has a condition that needs to be treat. What’s most important is that you love and accept yourself or any autistic person you know.

Learning the nuances of ASD can help you begin to understand. That the experiences of ASD are the experiences of each individual. No single term fits all.
