My 23 yr old stepson was diagnosed as a kid with "personality deficit disorder". I am untrained, but suspect Aspergers. He has just moved back in with us, after legal issues, drinking, etc. He was apparently not counseled much on why is different than peers. I have heard that "talk therapy" doesn't work for this kind of personality. What type of professional should we seek to help him with life skills and self-exploration? PS...He is very intelligent young man and willing to get help.
I have a 13 year old son diagnosed with aspergers. He refuses to talk with his therapist, is introverted and counselling him is very difficult. Absence from school is a regular happening resulting in massive attendance issues. In India help for those with Aspergers is difficult to find. Can anyone help? I would be grateful.
