Aspergers Disorder Causes Symptoms Information with Treatment

Aspergers Disorder may also suffer depression as a result of extreme anxiety or loneliness. Asperger's syndrome affects males more than females. Depression in people with Aspergers Disorder may stem from a growing awareness of their disability. The disturbances cause clinically significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

Restricted repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior, interests, and activities are usually caused by encompassing preoccupation with one or more stereotyped and restricted patterns of interest that is either in intensity or focus.

There is no specific treatment or 'cure' for Asperger's Disorder. All the interventions are mainly symptomatic and/or rehabilitational.

Psychosocial interventions include, individual psychotherapy to help the individual to process the feelings aroused by being socially handicapped, parent education and training, behavioral modification, social skills training, or educational interventions.

Psychopharmacological interventions include hyperactivity, inattention and impulsivity, clonidine, and tricylic antidepressants.

They also include other medications such as mood stabiizers, beta blockers, clonidine, naltrexone, and neuroleptics. The child with Aspergers Disorder needs to be taught problem solving skills, relaxation techniques, and skills to recognize when their emotions are being impacted by external events.

Common treatment of Aspergers Disorder

Maintaining optimal health is also a deterrent to depressive symptoms or feelings of low energy or stress.

Children with Asperger's Syndrome can be helped to learn social skills by an experienced psychologist. Body language and nonverbal communication can be taught in much the same way as one would teach a foreign language.



Children with Asperger's can learn to interpret nonverbal expressions of emotion and social interaction.

Take advantage of your child's strengths by encouraging him or her to explore interests at home and at school. Activity-oriented groups and focused counseling can also be helpful.
