Adults with Asperger’s syndrome may experience symptoms such as:
awkward social interactions
difficulty talking with others
an inability to interpret nonverbal behaviors in others
You may also practice repetitive behaviors and develop a hyperfocus on routines and rules.
However, adults with AS often have strong intellectual abilities and vocabulary skills. You pay great attention to detail and can focus for extended periods of time.
While most individuals with Asperger’s syndrome or an autism spectrum disorder will be diagnosed as children, some adults will not find a solution to their symptoms until adulthood.
With a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome, you can find therapies and treatments to help you cope with any challenges you face and live a healthy, productive life that’s fulfilling and happy.
