Why choose an Asperger’s School
An Asperger’s School is specifically designed for children and teens with Asperger’s Syndrome. Most Asperger’s children don’t understand how human relationships work and express their emotions in unpredictable ways. They can benefit from a school setting with teachers and students who understand what they are going through.
Children with Asperger’s
Asperger’s children and teens are highly intelligent and are often interested in very specific subjects- such as bugs, planes, or trees. They may learn a substantial amount about their favorite subject.
When they interact with others, they may sometimes speak passionately about whatever subject they are interested in. However, these interactions are typically one-sided and end up being more of a lesson about the subject than a conversation. This is one reason children with Asperger’s don’t make friends easily.
When attending an Asperger’s School, students learn how to succeed in academic and social environments. Talisman Semesters is a great example of an Asperger’s school that really cares about its students. After attending Talisman Semesters, students who much more confidence socially and academically.
