Assessment is an essential component of treatment planning and school programming for children with Asperger syndrome (AS), who show unique patterns of development. Current approaches to education and intervention for children with AS are varied, and the effectiveness of any one approach over another has yet to be supported through research. Also, although children with AS share many core features, their individual pathways to learning, or cognitive profiles, will have unique characteristics. The objective of a thorough evaluation is to understand the child with AS to the fullest extent possible. Goals can then be selected to be relevant for the individual child.
