Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been Aspergers Syndrome. I remember reading about it in Dear John, John's dad had this syndrome. Then I learned about it a little in my psych class. Lately, the disorder caught my eye again after I saw a movie. I know that many people don't know a lot about this. From what I have heard, people with Aspergers Syndrome are like regular people but they want things a certain way.For example, I heard that they have time table that they follow everyday. Now that's just what I've heard, it may or may not be true.
One thing that I know for sure about Aspergers Syndrome is that they don't have a easy life. Now I've studied my share of Science, and found out that people with Aspergers Syndrome can do everything that a regular person does but for them everything is in a order or a specific way.
Aspergers Syndrome a neurological disorder was named for the Austrian pediatrician, Dr. Hans Asperger, who first described the disorder in 1944. People with Aspergers Syndrome have don't have a lot of interests or hobbies. They have can't express themselves easily they are introverts.
Being that I didn't have a lot of background information on Aspergers Syndrome, I chose to do some research on the topic. As I searched for blogs and news articles on Google, I came across this one article MNIK's Aspergers syndrome decoded http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life/health-fitness/health/MNIKs-Aspe...
One quote that stood out for me was “These cases cannot be detected easily and are sometimes not diagnosed. These people can have a normal professional life but are extremely difficult in personal relations,” says Dr Barve. This statement didn't really surprise me all that much, but it did make me feel sad because that person's family know that something is unusual about that person but they don't know what it is.
In the same article, another quote that stood out for me was “People with Asperger’s have a special ability to remember a particular event in a detailed manner. But they don’t understand the social context of the situation,” says Dr Rajendra Barve, psychologist.
All of this makes me more interested in psychology because these disorders are really interesting to me.
