  • Mental Health Case Study: Meet Samuel

    Syndrome (AS). AS is a higher functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (ASPEN, 2016, para. 1). Foreman and Arthur-Kelly (2014, p. 306) describe ASD to be a developmental disorder that can cause difficulties with learning, communication, behaviour and social development.

Hans Asperger would later identify this form of ASD as AS (Shardell, 2013, p. 15). Asperger described children with this high functioning ASD as ‘Little Professors’. Asperger believed the child’s lust for an encyclopaedic knowledge and fixation with certain subjects could be utilised as special talents later in the child’s life (Coates, 2016). Asperger’s research would suggest Samuel will benefit from his diagnostic as a child with AS rather than be burdened by the stigma of a label.
