In brief: Nothing specific

Asperger's is 're-classified' in dsv v, very controversial.
Asperger's is part of a larger group of disorders labeled pervasive developmental disorders. However their are mild forms and severe forms thus we also call it spectrum disorder. Given the type of symptoms and severity, meaning how disruptive to their life & others, many kinds of meds tried. Research ongoing into cause and best treatment.
