I wanted to take the time to talk to you about Asperger syndrome behavior. If you’re unfamiliar with this condition, it is one of the spectrum disorders presented by autism. This particular case has the same problems with communication and relating skills, but the only difference is that they don’t lack any of the language skills. To put it simply, it is autistic behavior that is a little harder to detect because the person has the verbal capability, but just doesn’t have the desire to communicate and relate. At this point, the medical community has no idea how someone actually gets this problem. I’m going to discuss with you the Asperger syndrome behavior, so you are better able to identify it.
The thing that is going to be difficult about explaining this to you is that a lot of the behavior looks like typical teenager behavior. Often the behavior comes out when they become teenagers, so it makes it twice as hard to identify it.
You may notice that you child has no desire to obey rules or respect authority. That seems like such a blanket generalization because there are a lot of teenagers that are like that. We’re talking about a desire to skip school and not listen to you as their parents. You may also find them with an entitlement attitude; this desire to have things and throw a tantrum when they don’t get it.
The less common Asperger syndrome behavior has to do with empathy. Empathy is a person’s ability to really feel what another is going through. In this case, they wouldn’t have this ability. If they’re around people that are happy, laughing and having a good time, they could be completely aloof, which isn’t common. When you see people smiling, you just naturally smile on your own, but this doesn’t happen for those that have this disorder. Obviously, this will make it much more difficult for them to relate to others.
Another behavior that is a little odd is that they have these interests in very restricted and repetitive hobbies. This results in them having inflexible schedules and doing things that require the same tasks done over and over again. For example, to show how odd this is, you may notice them with a desire to memorize model numbers of cameras. That doesn’t sound bad, but this happens when the person has absolutely no desire in photography. They just memorize the numbers for the sake that it is a repetitive task.
Lastly, with Asperger syndrome behavior there is some issues with language. Even though they have the ability to properly and coherently communicate, that doesn’t mean they have abnormalities with it. For example, people are often sarcastic and say things that aren’t to be taken literally. You may notice that they just take the literal definition of things, instead of the person’s intended point. Obviously this isn’t something you’d expect a younger child to understand, but as teenager, they should be picking up on a lot of this.
