Children who have a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome are considered to be on the Autistic Spectrum. The term, Asperger’s, is no longer used in the USA. Many children in this group have high achievement in academic areas, but commonly struggle with social interaction and friendships. They may have other physical and emotional issues. They are often limited by anxiety. Each child is individual, although they are famous for not really understanding jokes, they certainly can have a sense of humour and are a delight to work with!
