"I work in private practice and see individuals with many different needs, but my main area of expertise lies in treating teens and adults with Asperger Syndrome (AS) or High Functioning Autism (HFA). Many of my AS or HFA clients share characteristics with my other clients or "neurotypical" members of society. Who hasn't fumbled when speaking to a potential friend or date? Have you ever been told that you misinterpreted something someone said? For individuals with AS or HFA, this happens all the time, and most "neurotypicals" can empathize with that."

Asperger's Syndrome Therapists
Asperger's Syndrome is a high functioning form of autism. People in New York 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.
