Asperger's syndrome is a disease that is a mild variant of autism
. "Aspies" tend to have the same social, organizational, and sensory difficulties as other autistic individuals, but their intelligence, communication and developmental abilities are not as affected by their disease as their peers. They also may exibit the same symptoms as their peers with ADD or ADHD
(concentration, tendency to create errors due to speed, etc). Many adults that were simply "daydreamers" are now believed or known to be diagnosed with this disease. Many are NOT emotionally disturbed and may go on to lead sucessful (college, job, family, independant) lives.
Some of the greatest human minds are believed to be autistic; Albert Einstien and Thomas Edison are among them. Asperger's syndrome also affects the lives of many non-famous people.
