      B) Seeing a picture and drawing it
      C) Learning to play the piano
    • 5) One of the defining factors of Aspergers is the exceptional ability to understand deep verbal meaning and subtle body language

      B) False
    • Aspergers Autism
      A developmental and neurological disorder
      There are studies shown that part of the disorder is a dysfunction in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. There is a possibility it is genetically linked.
      It is characterized by several things-
    • Fine-tuned senses
      Normally our brain can filter out stimulus
      People with Aspergerscan also do this but to a lesser extent
      They have high sensibility; Loud noises, bright colors, and sometimes even touching can be painful
    • Fixations/Routines
      To them, things are constantly going on, so they look for stability, often leading to fixations
      Imagine standing in the middle of the street with cars constantly going by you
      Surrounding them is chaos, this is why they like repetitive, easy to follow tasks and routines
    • Social/Emotional Odd Behavior & Inability to interact with peers
      To learn how to interact with peers was as if you or I were to learn how to play the piano
      It takes steps, motivation and careful evaluation
      They cannot empathize correctly with their peers
      It is hard to understand someone
      outside themselves
    • Peculiarities in Speech
      Elevated or odd speech, has varying tones/pitches
      Slow learning with language, inability to express oneself
      Take words literally, trouble understanding abstract terms such as figurative language
      Need concrete examples to match words to ideas
    • Inability to recognize non-verbal communication
      They do not understand body language, and
      do not recognize when someone is making
      an attempt to express non-verbally
      Ex: I am talking to you, you’re bored, sighing, holding your head in your hands, but I keep talking because I believe that as long as I’m interested, you are too
    • Intelligence/High IQ
      They more than likely have higher than normal IQ
      They’re often rejected for their weird lifestyle and different way of thinking by peers
    • 1) In Aspergers, there is a dysfunction in which lobe(s) of the brain?

      C) Occipital
