Asperger Syndrome (cont.)

Asperger's Syndrome Medical Treatment

No specific treatment for the core symptoms of Asperger's syndrome is available and no cure exists for the disorder. Educational, career, or vocational support, as well as behavioral, social, and family support are the primary treatments used for individuals with Asperger's syndrome. Psychopharmacology and other treatments may also be used to manage some of the problem behaviors associated with Asperger's syndrome or some of the associated psychiatric conditions (see above), if present.
