    People with Asperger’s Syndrome are particularly vulnerable to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.

    However, the inability of people with Asperger’s Syndrome to communicate feelings of disturbance, anxiety or distress can also mean that it is often very difficult to diagnose a depressed or anxious state, particularly for clinicians who have little knowledge or understanding of developmental disorders.
