Asperger Syndrome Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Asperger syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder characterized by an inability to understand how to interact socially. Other typical features of the syndrome include clumsy and uncoordinated motor movements, social impairment with extreme egocentricity, limited interests and/or unusual preoccupations, repetitive routines or rituals, speech and language peculiarities, and non-verbal communication problems. Children with Asperger syndrome generally have few facial expressions apart from anger or misery. Most have excellent rote memory and musical ability, and become intensely interested in one or two subjects (sometimes to the exclusion of other topics). They may talk at length about a favorite subject or repeat a word or phrase many times. Children with Asperger syndrome tend to be "in their own world" and preoccupied with their own agenda. The onset of Asperger syndrome commonly occurs after the age of 3 and it does not abate with age. clumsiness,Asperger syndrome and problems with coordination,Asperger syndrome and social impairment,Asperger syndrome and egocentricityAsperger syndrome and limited interests,Asperger syndrome and preoccupations,Asperger syndrome and repetitive routines,Asperger syndrome and rituals,Asperger syndrome and speech problems,Asperger syndrome and language problems,Asperger syndrome and communication problems,Asperger syndrome and facial expression,Asperger syndrome and musical ability
