Asperger’s Syndrome

Asperger’s Syndrome

Asperger’s syndrome is generally considered to be “high-functioning” autism.  Asperger’s is no longer an official diagnosis separate from autism spectrum disorder.

Many people with Asperger’s have unique talents and abilities that benefit them as an individual and positively contribute to the larger society.  Our well-balanced treatment program recognizes these gifts, fosters them, and allows the person to thrive while supporting them to be the person they can be.

Asperger’s is typically indicated by:

  • A high level of language and cognition
  • Deficits in areas of perspective and social interaction

CARE’s treatment for Asperger’s addresses perspective taking, social skills, self-management; coping skills and emotion regulation. We meet the unique needs of those who fall on this end of the spectrum through individualized behavior therapy, social skills groups, group therapy, or individual counseling. The particular therapeutic path taken depends upon your age and unique goals.
