Asperger syndrome: Treatments Inroduction

Asperger syndrome is not curable, but early recognition and treatment can help minimize symptoms so that children with the disorder can live as normal and productive lives as possible. The best treatment for Asperger syndrome is a plan that is individualized to the person's specific needs and symptoms. It generally includes therapies that address the primary types of symptoms of the disorder. These include repetitive routines, physical awkwardness and incoordination, and poor communication and social interaction with others.

A treatment plan can include helping a person with Asperger syndrome to develop the skills needed to turn an obsession with a particular subject into a healthy interest that can connect them with others socially. They can also learn the social skills needed to turn their obsession into a successful career. This may include cognitive behavioral therapy, social skills training, and communication skills training.
