Although first defined nearly seventy years ago, Asperger's Syndrome has become an accepted diagnosis on the autism spectrum only in modern times. Asperger's is defined by a series of clinical symptoms that may describe a child's behavior or way of being. Since the early 1990s, the syndrome has slowly but increasingly been identified by pediatric psychiatrists, psychologists, and other physicians. It is useful to understand the background and clinical definition of the term “Asperger's Syndrome.”
