Asperger's syndrome is a relatively new diagnosis and there is still a long way to go with regard to raising awareness and understanding, and much debate about exactly what the condition is and what should be done about it.

The Cause of Asperger's Syndrome is still not 100% certain, but a lot of old ideas have been ruled out and new insights come along all the time.

Treatments and therapies that can help with Asperger's Syndrome do exist, but some are considered more effective and ethical than others.

The question of a cure for Asperger's syndrome is a controversial one, and we have to be clear exactly what people mean when they use the word cure.

People with Asperger's Syndrome can face discrimination in many forms, and even in these days of almost obsessive political correctness it is amazing just how politically correct it is to demonize people with this disability.

Some people with Asperger's Syndrome face bullying and teasing as a result of being different.

Gender and sexuality issues are sometimes relevant to people with Asperger's Syndrome, and for reasons unknown far less females than males are ever diagnosed.

Are people with Asperger's Syndrome more likely than most to be violent or engage in criminal behaviour? The crime section looks at this question in depth.
