Asperger's Syndrome Support Groups
Asperger's Syndrome is a high functioning form of autism. People in Charlotte 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 baseball 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 Charlotte or for a Charlotte asperger's support group these professionals provide asperger's help, asperger's therapy, asperger's counseling and asperger's treatment. Charlotte Aspergers support groups can help with testing for asperger's or diagnosis of aspergers in Charlotte. The professionals work with asperger's in children or children with asperger's, asperger's in adolescents or adolescents with asperger's and asperger's in adults or adults with asperger's.

Support Groups work with asperger behaviors in Charlotte and follow asperger's research. They can provide support for parents of children with asperger's in Charlotte or aspy behaviour in kids and direct you to local asperger's resources.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Charlotte 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 Charlotte 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 Charlotte 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.
