What Is Asperger Syndrome?

Asperger syndrome is a high-functioning type of autism. Someone suffering from Asperger’s can have an average-to-above-average intellect but lack social skills. They also may have trouble making eye contact, miss social cues like personal space or small talk and may lack a filter which makes them say very inappropriate things.
