In brief: Autistic Symptoms
Asperger's syndrome has been recognized for a long time, but it has gained more publicity in recent years.
It is related to a variety of developmental and behavioral symptoms that are similar to symptoms of autism, except they are milder and usually less disabling. The symptoms have to do with problems in verbal communication, difficulties with social interactions, and other behavioral problems.
