Accommodations for Asperger's at School

Schools are getting better at providing services for children with Asperger's syndrome. Many schools offer pragmatic language therapy, which helps a child learn the basics of social interaction. Look for “friendship groups,” or a “lunch bunch.” Parents should make sure that social skills accommodations are part of their child’s individualized education program (IEP).

Because AS children have a greater capacity to lead an independent life than children with more severe forms of autism, parents and their professionals who work together can help AS kids learn to advocate for themselves as they approach adulthood.
