Susan Boyle reveals Asperger's syndrome - paper

Scottish singer Susan Boyle says she has a form of autism known as Asperger's syndrome, a diagnosis she says came as a relief after years of believing she had brain damage. 52-year-old Boyle told the British Observer newspaper she had sought help from a Scottish specialist a year ago believing her childhood diagnosis of brain damage was incorrect. Boyle said she had been teased throughout her life for her unusual behaviour and was called "Susie Simple" by children in her hometown. She had kept secret for the past year that she was diagnosed with Asperger's, a mild form of autism marked by social awkwardness. Boyle shot to international fame in 2009 after appearing on the TV show "Britain's Got Talent" and performing a flawless rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from "Les Miserables."
