Calls for more to be done to recognise Asperger’s in Alicante schools

THE Asperger’s Association of Alicante (Aspali) warned that many schools in the province deny the existence of the syndrome and say mothers who protest and question their child’s ability are often branded as ‘hysterical.’

President of Aspali, Ezkarne Carazo, said, “The most important thing for these families is education, in schools and at all levels.”

Carazo made the comments during International Asperger’s Day, saying that despite spending almost a century identifying the characteristics, the condition is still considered the “invisible disability.”

Asperger’s syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterised by significant difficulties in social interaction and non-verbal communication, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour and interests.
