Asperger’s Syndrome Definition Asperger’s syndrome is an “almost autism” disorder that causes the person with it to have difficulty

with social interactions, and repetitive patterns in behaviour. It is commonly gotten genetically, but not enough research has been done to prove it. It will eventually be called autism spectrum disorder, using a severity scale.
