In other words, individuals with Asperger syndrome have the same types of reciprocal social interaction deficits and restricted, repetitive behaviors as individuals with autism but don’t display the same language difficulties. No matter how old they are, their language ability is about what would be expected for their age, especially in the areas of grammar, vocabulary, or pronunciation.

Children with pervasive developmental disorders, including Asperger syndrome and high-functioning autism, experience difficulty across multiple (or “pervasive”) areas of development (social, communication, behavior, cognition, sometimes even motor skills). In contrast, children with specific developmental disorders, like dyslexia, have problems in only one specific learning area (such as reading), but function okay in other subjects, are quite normal socially and behaviorally, and have at least average motor skills.
