One of the most interesting and complex groups of children to work with are those diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. The varied clinical presentation, the range of social and emotional development and the way Asperger’s children “think” can be a challenge for clinicians. Understanding the Asperger child’s profile, the global impact of the disability and the common developmental strengths and weaknesses is the core to developing treatment plans that ultimately lead to the child’s success.
These workshops provides a deep understanding of Asperger’s Syndrome from early childhood through young adulthood. Through case examples, participants will learn clinical strategies and treatment approaches to implement in their daily practice. The workshop format includes lecture, discussion, and numerous case examples.
