Asperger’s syndrome is a condition that is no longer diagnosed; it has been diagnosed as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) since 2013. However people who were diagnosed with Asperger’s before 2013, may still use the term to refer to their condition. Like all people with ASD, those with Asperger’s syndrome have difficulty socialising and communicating. They are very likely to have ritualistic and repetitive behaviours which are symptoms of ASD. However they do not have intellectual impairments which are common in ASD.
