Autism is a developmental disability that affects a person’s ability to communicate and process information and sensory information. Autism ranges in ability from “low-functioning” to “high functioning” with IQ, communication skills and social skills as factors. People with autism seem to be highly rigid in their routines and can have very low social skills.
Asperger’s Syndrome is a disability in which a person has average to above average IQ, but exhibits characteristics of autism.
