Focus: Junior focuses remarkably well on topics involving the mind, is likely to be the "little professor" type who's baffled by his peers, doesn't fit in, talks fast, and is poorly coordinated for team sports. You can't cure it, especially by exhorting or yelling, but social skills can be taught (get help), and these kids may excel at fitness / strength focused sports & later in tech / science. Good luc.

It is very hard to: Hide asperger's syndrome. It would probably be better to let people you care about know that you have it and therefore you may at time seem different from others. Many people will be supportive and try to learn more about it. You can give them books to read or ask them to watch parenthood on tv. There is a character with young teen with asperger's and an adult who is questioning if he has it.
