Link Day: Asperger's for the less scientific
((Just a little video game humor - the image has nothing to do with the post!))
Explaining AS is usually best done through giving the curious links and webpages about the condition. It's not because those with the disorder or who have experience with it can't explain what it is, but because it's often easier to absorb information at ones own pace.
TV Tropes is the type of website anyone can spend hours bouncing around, going from one page to another. It also has a surprisingly poignant article on what Asperger's Syndrome is and isn't. The page is full of pop-culture references and little jokes, but it has accurate information. It's easier for the average person to absorb than Wikipedia's page on AS.
