Asperger's syndrome is a neurological disorder in the autism spectrum (colloquially a 'lighter' version of autism). Although we know more and more about this disorder, the disease is still rarely diagnosed. Why?

Each child may have different symptoms of ZA. In addition, young children with Asperger Syndrome often differ only slightly from their peers. Their personality is attributed to upbringing, character ...

However, there are some behaviors that may indicate this disorder. About it below.

Repeatedly performing one action

Many children with Asperger syndrome spend countless minutes on one activity or object of interest. They can be suburban lanterns, meat masher, blue toys, circle-shaped objects, etc.

"Professor" speeches

Children with Asperger syndrome often can express themselves in a very "educated way", they are interested in "serious matters", in this respect they stand out from their peers. Their language is sometimes formal, unusual for a small child. Most often they have their favorite topics that they want to talk about all the time, thus surprising the surroundings.

Does not understand figuratively, subtleties of speech

Children with Asperger Syndrome take everything literally. They do not understand the subtleties of speech: tone, accent, mockery, joke. Everything that is said to them is received and interpreted very literally.

Difficulties in reading social signals

Children with Asperger Syndrome have trouble reading the emotions of others. They do not receive facial expressions and body language in a way we know. They have a problem with waiting their turn and taking a different point of view. Because of these social problems, children can be isolated and lonely. Usually, their peers quickly realize that "something is wrong with them" and do not want to play with babies who show symptoms of ZA.

A strong need for routine

Every child likes a predictable schedule of the day that allows them to feel safe.

However, children with Asperger's Syndrome are extremely sensitive to change. In a special way they require routine, they feel good only in an ordered and very well organized world. If something unusual is going to happen in a child's life with Asperger's Syndrome, it is very important that the toddler is informed faster, maybe the shock associated with it may be alleviated.

Apparent lack of empathy

An important sign of Asperger's syndrome is the apparent lack of empathy for other people. Children with this disorder have no idea that those around them have their feelings and needs. They live in their little world and look at everything from its perspective.

Unusual body language

Children with Asperger syndrome often use specific body language and facial expressions. Sometimes they look very intensely at others or completely avoid this type of contact.

Delayed motor development

A characteristic feature of children with Asperger's syndrome is often delayed motor development. Toddlers can later start walking, have a long problem climbing stairs, and have trouble learning to ride a bike.

Unusual passions

Children with Asperger Syndrome have amazing passions that they explore from birth. They devote themselves to them completely, becoming specialists in them. These passions are often "difficult", seem complicated for the average person, not suited to a small child: they concern electronics, technology, biology, mathematics, geography, etc.

Instead of watching cartoons, children prefer Asperger syndrome to study atlases, encyclopedias, and scientific articles.

Sensory hypersensitivity

Many children with Asperger syndrome are hypersensitive to sounds, strong light, textures.

We recommend a book written by Mama Boy with Asperger syndrome. You can read her review here.
