What is the difference between Asbergers and autism?
I believe you're referring to Asperger Syndrome, this is no
longer a diagnosis.
Asperger Syndrome was a diagnosis given to Autistic people who
did not show developmental delays - Autistic people who did show
developmental delays would have been diagnosed as having Autism
spectrum Disorder - now Asperger Syndrome is merged with Autism.
There is no other clear difference between the two diagnosis, and
given as people develop at different speeds this was not a clear
enough distinction to keep Asperger Syndrome as a separate
diagnosis. Often doctors diagnosed someone as having Asperger
Syndrome just to avoid the stigma of Autism diagnosis.
Asbergers is actually a kind of autism. Asbergers is better than
most autism. They have bigger brains and can do many things that
other children can't. Also,They are obsessed with their hobbies. To
