Asperger's Syndrome Treatment FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is a diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome or autism spectrum disorder required?
A: No. There is a simple, kinesthetic test for our treatment of social interaction impairment due to Asperger's Syndrome that a client can use.
Q: Are you willing to treat people with many different diagnoses?
A: We will make a decision individually from case to case.
Q: How long does it take?
A: The first treatment can take up to 2 hours. Then there are always 2 follow up sessions, where an evaluation is made and, if not all symptoms are eliminated, the process is repeated.
Q: What happens if this process doesn’t work, or if it works only partially?
A: Then everything remains the same; or there might be just a certain percentage of improvement in the symptoms of the client.
Q: How many treatments are necessary?
A: That depends on the client and the client’s symptoms. The Asperger's treatment requires a minimum of three sessions, with the final two sessions being follow up sessions to check that symptom elimination is stable; but some clients take four or five sessions. (These times don’t include any follow-up treatments for adjustment issues.)
Q: How does the client feel between treatments?
A: It is very individual how the clients feel between treatments. Some are free of symptoms after the first treatment; others take a second or third session to become symptom free.
Q: Is the child client going to sit/sleep/be sitting with a parent or something else?
A: Yes. A parent is greatly preferred for children being treated.
Q: Do you touch the client?
A: No, the therapist does not usually need to touch the client. A gentle physical touch on the hand is needed. This is usually done by the parent if the client is a young child, or by the client if they are old enough to follow instructions.
Q: If this process really works, why aren’t you famous?
A: The process is still very new, and not many people know of these techniques yet.
Q: Have you been only partially successful in treating people, or even had to give up in helping someone?
A: Because people are very complex, we don’t expect to be able to help everyone. Currently, most of our clients have had excellent results, if the symptoms are caused by the disease we know how to treat.
Q: If the agreed upon Asperger's symptoms are only partially eliminated, what is the fee?
A: There is no charge in this case.
Q: If I have more questions, where can I get an answer?
A: You are welcome to contact any of our clinic staff specialising in the Aspergers Syndrome treatment. There is also a clinic contact form on this website.
Q: Will follow up treatments be required?
A: The standard Aspergers Syndrome treatment includes two follow up treatments to ensure the symptom elimination is permanent. Additional follow up might also be necessary, and we recommend it in most cases. The Asperger's Syndrome symptoms might be gone and yet other problems in the client that might have been suppressed for a long time can surface. (Example: fear of being alone, which is something the therapists can deal with.) In addition, the parents may have issues come up around their child changing. This is not included in the Asperger's process fee.
Q: What can I expect after the treatment?
A: After a successful treatment, the client will experience great change as they adapt to a so-called normal way of living, one that they never have experienced before. This new sensation of the world suddenly being present can be quite exhilarating for some, and concerning to others.
Q: If the client has many different diagnoses, will all other symptoms disappear as well?
A: This process works only for the social impairment issues of Asperger's Syndrome and thus it does not necessarily affect any other symptoms from these other diagnoses. However, if the other symptoms were a result of the Asperger's, we would expect them to disappear with time.
Q: Is the effect of the treatment permanent?
Q: Is medication used in the treatment?
A: No. We use Peak States therapy techniques developed specifically for this purpose.
