Asperger's is an autism spectrum disorder characterized by difficulty with non-verbal communication and social interaction.
Acquisition of language usually includes abnormalities with abrupt transitions, verbosity, misconception of nuance, literal interpretations and much more. As such, communication and speech for children and adults living with Asperger’s is difficult.
Sometimes it's best to begin with different techniques, such as by using an image exchange communication system that utilizes picture boards with words to help the child or adult learn to communicate or to communicate better.

of the brain by altering how nerve cells
and synapses organize and connect.
