Aspergers Syndrome in Adults
My interest in Aspergers Syndrome (AS) stems from personal and professional experiences working with this population. I came to appreciate the amazing skills possessed by those with AS, and use their positive traits as building blocks in therapy. Each person is a unique individual that shares various aspects of AS traits.
