Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a disorder in which psychotic symptoms, including delusions or hallucinations, thought disorder and so called 'negative symptoms', cause social and/or occupational dysfunction over time. Because individuals with Asperger Syndrome have normal cognitive ability, restrictive behaviours and impairments in social interaction and communication can be misinterpreted as evidence of Schizophrenia. People with Asperger Syndrome have difficulty understanding the subtleties of social behaviour, but this should not be confused with evidence of a psychotic disorder.
