In brief: This may help

We don't know the cause, and the only real treatment is to learn new behaviors.
The cruelest thing about the syndrome is that the person is often a jerk without realizing it. This does not excuse bullying, but learning to be a diplomat can help. Aspies often excel at academics, and being humble, good-humored & helping others will help as well. Get a sport requiring little coordination & speech rx.
