People with Asperger’s Syndrome have difficulty with peer to peer communication, usually engaging in restricted activities and repeated behaviors.
Cognitive behavioral therapy, social training, counseling, physical training, speech therapy and parental training are all popular forms of treatment. Medications will sometimes be used if the individual has issues with mood or anxiety.
Weighted blankets are now being used by the general public to help ease stress and anxiety, however, weighted blankets originally became popular in the autism community. The heavy weight of the blanket feels like a loving hug, while releasing serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin into the body. This can help the sufferer calm down during times of agitation and anxiety.
