Asperger syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder that is characterised by an inability to understand how to interact socially. Typical features of the syndrome may include clumsy and uncoordinated motor movements, social impairment with extreme egocentricity, repetitive routines or rituals, limited interests and unusual preoccupations, speech and language difficulties and peculiarities, and non-verbal communication problems. Our therapists believe Retained Reflex Syndrome (RRS), is at the root of neuro-developmental delay and the cause of many childhood and adult disorders including Aspergers syndrome.
Children (and adults) with Aspergers can frequently respond successfully to appropriate intervention. At the Child Development Centre we provide the Mulhall Integration Programme (MIP), a range of techniques tailored to the needs of the individual.
