It is not easy to identify a person with Asperger’s because the disorder is a high-functioning form of autism. Children with Asperger's typically do not experience speech and language delays due to their above-average cognitive skills. The most common symptom is impaired social development. Children with Asperger’s are often isolated from other children because their interests are different and they focus on specific topics obsessively. 

They also do not pick up on the social cues of others around them. Common signs of Asperger's include a lack of eye contact during conversation; difficulty comprehending nonliteral words or phrases; repetitive mannerisms, speech, or movements; and delays in motor skill development.
