    Hello! One of my SW classmates/friends got me thinking…..She encouraged me to take a class about dealing with kids who have autism. Even though I am not very interested in working with kids, but more with adults, what will happen when these kids become adults? I wonder how my treatment methods must change to suit their unique needs.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I would think that would be an interesting area to look into. What I’d suggest you consider doing if you want to work with adults with Asperger’s or Autism, is that you call the agencies that deal with kids who have it and ask them what services exist for adults with these conditions.

    Let me know how it works out.

    Nate
