Sample text

Fixed ideas about ‘appropriate foods’ and various ritualistic phenomena have been present since early childhood but come to the forefront in adolescence.

The school-age child with Asperger syndrome may stand so close to the other person, that he/she may feel intimidated. The child may stare at the other person’s mouth rather than his eyes and gestures and overall ‘body language’. In another situation he may stand far away and even have his whole upper body turned away, so that it would be almost impossible for the person being addressed to know that he/she is expected to respond. Asperger himself put considerable diagnostic weight on the intense, staring, penetrating gaze shown by many people with Asperger syndrome.

It is very common for other members of the family to be drawn into these ‘ideas’ and forced to ‘abide by them’, no matter how absurd they may seem. Sometimes, the child with Asperger syndrome ‘makes himself perform’ to perform a number of activities before he can start doing something else. Obsessions and compulsions can sometimes be so severe that separate symptom criteria for obsessive–compulsive disorder or obsessive–compulsive personality disorder are met. In certain cases, these obsessions and compulsions may need to be seen as a separate problem that may warrant speciWc treatment (pharmacotherapy, cognitive behaviour therapy or both).
