As with autism there is no cure for asperger syndrome. That said there are things you can do to help those asperger individuals.
Asperger syndrome and definition:
Generally an asperger individual will display limited facial expressions. Mostly the asperger individual will have excellent rote memory, and will also display an intense interest in one maybe two topics to the exclusion of anything else.
These interests can sometimes be with the strangest of things; for example a bus timetable, a clock some marbles etc.
An asperger person may appear preoccupied with their own agenda to the exclusion of anything or anyone else.
Children with asperger syndrome have a better chance of living independently than those children with autism or other conditions on the spectrum.
Treatments and therapies are used for the asperger person as well as social skills training, educational intervention and medications.
I want to focus if I may on social skills training…Research suggest one of the main disabilities faced by asperger syndrome people is their lack of social awareness and deficits in social skills and communications.
If an individual with aspergers is going to live independently, and live as near a normal life as possible, this area needs to be looked at…and techniques and resources need to be put in place, to aid the individual with aspergers, achieve this goal.
There are resources that can help achieve this long term goal. One of those resources is the use of autism social skills stories, or asperger social skills stories.
