This program follows a self-described eccentric who, after discovering he matches up with the general Asperger's profile, sets out on a quest to learn all he can about the disorder-and whether he truly does have it. Along the way, he speaks with author Michael Fitzgerald, Professor Temple Grandin, Professor Alan Snyder, Wired magazine's Steve Silberman, Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, and a number of children and adults with AS about topics ranging from Asperger's traits, to possible causes of the condition, to "Geek Syndrome" and the AQ Test. A warm and understanding look into the very different world of autism spectrum disorders.11 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

Asperger's syndrome [electronic resource (video)] : autism and obsessive behavior / by BBC Worldwide Ltd.(SAGE)1970872; Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584;

This part allows humans to communicate, infer meaning, and imagine, all basic to the socialization process. But there is a group of people, primarily males, who lack a small piece of this frontal cortex and who suffer from a mild form of autism. Identified as Asperger's syndrome in 1940, this condition makes them incapable of everyday social interactions. They live in a constant state of anxiety, a result of the phobias that are a part of the disease. This program profiles the symptoms of Asperger's syndrome and what sufferers and their families can do to overcome the limitations that it imposes.11 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
