  • Asperger syndrome falls into the category of Autism Spectrum Disorders. If you research this topic you will most likely find more information than simply researching "asperger syndrom". Some doctors/scientists/health professionals etc believe there to be a genetic link with ASD while others claim environmental factors as a possible cause. In my research, (I work with many children diagnosed with ASD in my profession) I lean more heavily to the genetic theories but don't deny that some environmental factors may add to the condition.
