In brief: No real cure

Asperger's disorder (ad) is a type of autism that mainly affects social connectedness and also presents with odd or unusual interests.
Typically, those with ad have normal to high iq's. The best established approach is to use their intelligence to "learn" how to interact with others and to control their behaviors so they don't stand out. A number of centers specialize in this type of work.

In brief: Treated Not Cured

Asperger's syndrome is not really something you can make "disappear".
It has to do with a variety of developmental problems with communication, social interactions, and unusual responses to the environment. It is usually a chronic problem, although the symptoms associated with it can be managed by a variety of treatments.
