Abstract

Asperger's syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder characterized by social impairments and rigid and repetitive interests or behaviors paired with relatively preserved cognitive and verbal facilities. This article describes the clinical manifestation of the disorder and guidelines for diagnostic assessment and intervention. Existing research is reviewed within the areas of epidemiology, medical/neurobiologic factors, genetics, and outcome, and future directions for research are recommended.
