Asperger's Disorder Outlook
What to expect with Asperger's disorder:
- The outlook for Asperger's disorder varies from child to child.
- The more pronounced the symptoms and more severe the inability to communicate, the more likely the child will be unable to function independently as an adult.
- Some children who are severely socially handicapped may improve significantly with age.
- Rarely, children recover completely.
