Introd­uction

Asperger Syndrome (AS), also known as Asperg­er's, is a develo­pmental disorder charac­terized by signif­icant diffic­ulties in social intera­ction and nonverbal commun­ica­tion, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.

As a milder autism Spectrum disorder (ASD), it differs from other ASDs by relatively normal language and intell­igence. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and unusual use of language are common.

Signs usually begin before two years old and typically last for a person's entire life

Instru­ctions

Pick out the one answer that best describes the way you have been feeling during the past two weeks, including today. Circle the number of the correct answer. Please do not choose more than one number for each statement.

Respond to each statement as best you can using the answer key below:
0 = Not a problem at all
1 = A mild problem, that is bothersome but doesn’t interfere with daily activities
2 = A moderate problem, that does interfere with daily activities
3 = A severe problem, which makes it very hard to have a normal day at all
