In brief: Delayed Development

Asperger syndrome (as) is characterized by repetitive routines or rituals, peculiarities in speech and language, socially and emotionally inappropriate behavior, problems with non-verbal communication, and limited or inappropriate facial expressions.
Adults can overcome some of these symptoms but usually still struggle with social situations and with relationships.
