About the course

Asperger's Syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's is a neurobiological disorder which belongs to the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). According to Dr Asperger, after whom the disability has been named, has defined it as "a lack of empathy, little ability to form friendships, one-sided conversation, intense absorption in a special interest, and clumsy movements." People suffering from Asperger's have difficulty in social communication along with repetitive behaviour or restricted interests. As it interferes with the motor development, common symptoms may include clumsiness or lack of motor co-ordination, sensory problems, etc. Children suffering from this disability have average or even higher intelligence level, unlike other mentally disabled individuals.

This professional course will allow the candidates to get a comprehensive idea on the disability, know about its history, how it is different from other ASDs, the individuals who are most likely to be affected by it, the symptoms and as well as the steps to be taken to provide effective support for the affected individuals.
