Unfortunately, there are few and mostly ineffective treatments and therapies that can help someone with Aspergers. There are no drugs that FDA approved that can treat Aspergers. Currently, the only way to treat Aspergers Syndrome would be tailored therapy that focuses on the patient’s poor communication skills, repetitive routines, and physical clumsiness. If these therapies were to be effective, they would build on the patient’s interests, teach them tasks as a series of simple steps, actively engage their attention in activities, and reinforce their behavior.
These treatments can include social skills training or a more popular form of therapy like cognitive behavioral therapy. Because these treatments and therapies are not 100% effective, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS has proven to be an effective and safe procedure to treat Aspergers.
