: I would like to know if anyone on staff can diagnose asperger syndrome for a 4 1/2 year old child.
Asperger syndrome is a variant of Autism, and sometimes the terms
are used in the same case by different doctors. The Cleveland Clinic
Pediatric Neurology has a very large number of patients with this
condition as we have on of the leading authorities in the country
on this disorder on staff. While I cannot identify a particular doctor
on the internet I would encourage you to contact Pediatric Neurology
Appointments at the Cleveland Clinic (216) 444 5559, asking specifically
for the pediatric neurologist who specialises in this area.
