We know that we unwittingly live in a world where our environment is not what it seems. As already mentioned in previous post, people with asperger are usually those that go unnoticed but are in the background, more than the rare place, misunderstood.
That is often because we do not give ourselves the opportunity to know them and when we do not have the tools to face it. On the one hand, because the policies of the company do not have clear and established against it and on the other because even when we have clear policies, we do not put them into practice.
Mainly, the asperger is characterized by a lack of social skills and communication skills. In addition, such individuals may be deficient in tactile perception, psychomotor coordination, or visual space organization.
There are few interactions that those who suffer the asperger can have friends with their environment are by choice or the conversations they have really are not the expected fluency. So as your interlocutor do not despair.
To improve the synergy of the group companies should, in the first instance, focus on people who have this syndrome and on the other hand realize how to do so that it does not affect him or the rest of the team in which he develops.
