Prepare to enter the wild and wooly world of an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, a form of autism characterized by intellignce, quirks, social difficulties and downright strange and oddish behaviours.

People with Aspergers generally are high functioning in everyday life but have great difficulty connecting with others due to the inability to read faces, body language and subtle verbal clues. They also tend to take words literally and have a hard time multi-tasking.

Oversensitivity to touch (clothing has to be soft and often the tags removed), light (do not leave home without the sunglasses), sound (loud noises and noisey places are avoided), taste (many Aspies have quite a limited diet and are frequently very picky eaters) and smells makes the everyday existence more of a challenge.

Fasten your seatbelts and come on in...

Therapy Today

Continually surprised at how much gets aired in a single therapy session. I tend to leave both confused, enlightened, and with a lot of baggage to sort through.

  1. Having sat on both sides of the proverbial couch, all I can offer is a "yep". :- )
    Happy unpacking? Or re-packing but doing a better job of folding? Or throwing all the old stuff out and starting the whole packing process over...yeah! Maybe that's the way to go. Moving on now.
