Often, this results in a seeming lack of ambition and social isolation. Often, they live with parents or relatives and rarely venture out. These folks want productive friendships and relationships, but do not know how. Many want productive and meaningful work, but have no idea how to obtain it.
I offer services to the older adolescent and adult with Asperger’s Disorder that wishes to explore their potential. I offer structured, step-by-step training in social skills, occupational skills, and independent living specifically geared toward Asperger’s Disorder.
