Autism and Asperger’s are two related mental health conditions that affect many Americans and people throughout the world.
While the research into Autism and the Autism spectrum is continuing to grow yearly, there’s still a lot that we can learn from those experiencing Autism or Asperger’s. We’ve changed how we treat those with Autism in recent years and are beginning to appreciate the different ways that those with Autism experience their world.
We’ve also begun to understand that the Autistic brain is wired differently than those that don’t experience it. People with autism sometimes have other skills that are higher functioning or refined. Some people with autism have a penchant for Math and Engineering, some are able to have perfect recall, and some see colors when listening to music.
Autism and Asperger’s are complex mental health conditions that need expertise. Silver Lake Psychology’s trained Autism and Asperger’s specialists are expertly trained to help clients and their families deal with the complexity and breadth of an Autism or Asperger’s diagnosis.
What are some of the benefits of seeking therapy when you have Autism or Asperger’s?
Many people can benefit from seeking therapy. While therapy can help one deal with life’s challenges, relationships with yourself and others, and many other topics, seeing an Autism and Asperger’s therapist specialist can help you specifically from an informed, understanding lens and approach.
We want to help you succeed and having therapist specialists trained to understand your unique life experience can help you in every aspect of your life. They’ll understand how you experience the world and can give you the tools, strategies, and coping skills to help improve your life.
What will you discuss with your therapist?
Working with a therapist can be an uplifting experience. Your therapist will work with you to build a tailored therapeutic plan to ensure that you’re getting what you need out of therapy. We’ll help you to delve deeper into your life, how you experience the world, your relationships, and your routines.
You’ll also work on how you relate to and communicate with others. Focusing on communication patterns, goals, and strategies, your Autism therapist specialist will help you to better understand communication in general and tips for success.
You’ll also discuss other parts of your life and what you’re going through. We know that there’s more to you than your diagnosis and we’ll validate and support you throughout the process.
