Susan Boyle says Asperger's diagnosis was a relief [View all]

By JILL LAWLESS, Associated Press

LONDON (AP) Singer Susan Boyle says she has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism and feels relief at finally having the right label for her condition.

Boyle told the Observer newspaper that she saw a specialist a year ago, who told her she had Asperger's and an above-average IQ.

Boyle, 52, had learning difficulties as a child, which she was told were the result of brain damage from oxygen deprivation at birth. She struggled in school and was bullied by other children.

"I have always known that I have had an unfair label put upon me," Boyle said in the interview, published Sunday.
