CAASS prides itself on helping clients that have not had success in the past with mental health and medical interventions to help them with Autism/Asperger’s and social anxiety issues. Here are some of the kinds of problems and clients we help:
Problems with understanding non-verbal and non-literal communication
Working with those who have existentialist issues due to the isolation Autism/Asperger’s can cause
People who are extremely brilliant in professional and academic areas but struggle with emotional intelligence
People with a hard time understanding and naming emotions (alexithymia)
Those with Autism/Asperger’s and co-occurring mental disorders/ suicidal thoughts
People who need to find a voice and be more assertive
How do I know if I have Autism/Asperger’s personality features ?
Do you have terror in having to deal with strangers or groups?
Have you always had trouble with understanding others or been told you were too literal or awkward?
Have you been described as quirky, eccentric or a nerd since childhood?
Do you have special interests or activities/hobbies/subject that you are extremely interested in (e.g. anime, stats, medicine, serial killer memorabilia, cars, etc.)?
