Asperger's Syndrome Support Groups
Asperger's Syndrome is a high functioning form of autism. People in Toronto with Asperger's often have difficulties with social skills. They might also have problems with motor regulation. However, unlike many with autism, their language and cognitive skills are largely intact.

People with Asperger's often have an orientation toward detail and an interest in systemizing, which can look like obsessiveness. Some may show remarkable facility in a narrowly focused and usually non-social area, such as basketball statistics or train schedules.

Those with Asperger's typically lack the ability to understand the perspectives and feelings of others. But they often benefit from sustained training in social awareness, such as learning how to read facial expressions and interaction skills. When encouraged to cope with their difficulties, many with Asperger's capitalize on their intense interests to become successful in a specific field of work.

If you're looking for help with asperger's in Toronto or for a Toronto asperger's support group these professionals provide asperger's help, asperger's therapy, asperger's counselling and asperger's treatment.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Toronto Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Toronto is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Toronto are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
