Abstract: The categorization of Asperger syndrome has suffered criticism from its origins. Hence our decision to carry out a bibliometric study with the aim to analyse how the treatment of this topic has evolved through a set of bibliometric indicators referred to variables of scientific production (authorship, research topics and areas…) during the period 1990–2014. We used different database like Medline, Inspec, Biosis Citation Index, SciELO Citation Index, Web of science, current contents connect that allowed us to obtain a study sample of 3452 papers distributed across 574 journals. The results show a gradual increase of scientific production over the last 12 years, which is larger amongst English-speaking countries. The topic under analysis was covered to a greater extent from the Behavioral Science, rather than on educational intervention. The conclusion shows that a need exists to undertake studies which implement proposals for intervention with these students.
