Hi everyone! I am new to this community and am so excited to engage and learn from others. I am seeking advice: I have a newly diagnosed 8 year old with Asperger’s and anxiety. The psychologist who did his evaluation recommended play therapy and social skills group. We immediately got him started and are many months into it, however we have not seen improvement. I am wondering if play therapy is appropriate for him right now, as he is seeming to struggle with internal sensory issues (no big external issues) and frustration tolerance with leads to aggression at home with a younger sibling and parents. I am wondering if we should transition him from play therapy to occupational therapy? Does anyone have any recommendations or experience in OT with someone with Asperger’s?
