Asperger syndrome (AS) is a neurological condition on the autism spectrum. It’s a pervasive developmental disability that affects an individual throughout his life. Planning for anyone living with AS requires an understanding of its unique nuances. That way, practitioners can effectively interface with AS clients and help them with estate and financial planning.
AS has a genetic basis, so it often can be seen throughout generations of an extended family. The prevalence of AS in a family is important to planning. For example, if a client has a child or grandchild with AS, the client may consider planning only for that child. But, given that AS
is hereditable, that limited planning could be a mistake, and practitioners should consider planning steps for future descendants who may also have AS.
