In my continual education of trauma and it’s affects, I research a lot. Aspergers is one disorder I know can be developed from complex trauma, and I see how this develops.
It is interesting going through the different challenges those with Aspergers can face and how there will be different levels of insight into these challenges.
From the above website…

-Odd rhythm and peculiar voice characteristics (voice lacks emotion)
