Are any of you familiar with the term Asperger's Syndrome. What do you think about it? I have it.

Well, I'm certainly familiar with it, since I have Asperger's syndrome myself (in fact I also wrote a book about the experiences of schoolchildren with Asperger's).

What are your concerns about it?

Asperger's syndrome is a neurological condition which is thought to be on the "autistic spectrum".

People with Asperger's syndrome may have no problems with verbal and academic ability, but we still typically have the problems with social interaction and communication, need for routine, and obsessive interests which are characteristic of autism.
