I looked this word up on www.dictionary.com and from a multilingual dictionary source it gave the meaning "sprinkle" or "sprinkler" & also "sprinkling". When I looked for the meaning in my Oxford dictionary of nursing it says; Aspergers Syndrome - a mild form of autism characterised by aloofness, lack of interest in other people, stilted and pedantic styles of speech, and an excessive preoccupation with a very specialised interest (such ss timetables). Dictionary.com is one of my favourite sites and very handy.

Asperger's syndrome is a form of autism; it's considered to be one of the 'autism spectrum disorders.' If you search for autism you'll probably find a reference to Asperger's.
