What is Asperger’s syndrome?

Asperger’s syndrome (AS) is one of a group of neurological disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). AS is considered to be on the mild end of the spectrum. People with AS exhibit three primary symptoms:

  • having difficulty with social interaction
  • engaging in repetitive behavior
  • standing firm on what they think
  • focusing on rules and routines


Some people with ASDs are classified as high-functioning. High-functioning autism means that these individuals don’t have delayed language skills and cognitive development that is typical of many people with ASDs.


Often, individuals diagnosed with AS have normal or above normal intelligence. In addition, people with this condition are frequently able to be educated in mainstream classrooms and hold jobs.


AS cannot be cured. Early diagnosis and intervention can help a child make social connections, achieve their potential, and lead a productive life.



AS can caused social isolation, employment problems, family stress, bullying, self-harm



People with Asperger syndrome are of average or above average intelligence. They don't have the learning disabilities that many autistic people have, but they may have specific learning difficulties. They have fewer problems with speech but may still have difficulties with understanding and processing language.

With the right sort of support, all can be helped to live a more fulfilling life of their own choosing.



Oh wow... reading the text about AS makes my heart break for the people that have it.

Episode 1 was awesome . The acting was actually good. While watching the first episode I felt the frustration of the male lead , the story is well written but because of its intensity I can’t binge watch it in a day.

I'm gonna start watching tonight... got called in for work.. so its working time... no time for drama for lyn this morning... :(

Not gonna lie just by skimming the episodes, I feel like I might break down and cry because of how relatable and sad that we as a person wants to be recognize. how people can easily loose their empathy.. and also how easy it is for someone to bully others just because they're different.

So I do get what you're saying @UnniSarah

Had to stop in the middle of the finale episode (8), and all I can say that the show is haunting. It's a police procedural, but it's also about people, how they deal with their past, how they're trying to fix their past. I didn't recognize Ruby Lin when she appeared for the first time, and all I can say is: wow, this is very different from her typical roles (which I know of), and I never thought she had that in her :)
