Many types of therapies may be recommended for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) beacause of the wide range of symptoms, skills, and levels of disability in functioning and social communications/interactions. 

Because of the wide spectrum, such type of therapies may include: educational therapies in and out of school, behaviorial and/or developmental therapy, anger management therapy, family therapy, speech therapy, and occupational and/or physical therapy.

 

How about you?

Do you have any experience with therapy for your autism spectrum disorder? What types of therapies have you participated in? Did you find it beneficial?

Hi Lee. I have participated in developmental therapy, counseling, I also when I was younger participated in physical therapy and social therapy which was geared to helping my social skills.

I think all the therapies have helped me become more aware of my condition. I also feel that I have improved my social and behavior skills. The counseling continues to help me talk about feelings.
