I have been actively seeking out occupational therapy and a therapist who specializes in ASD to help me improve my daily habits and coping skills in the workplace.
The responses I have been given for regular therapy:
•Sorry, we only treat kids/teens
•Sorry, we don’t have anyone who specializes in ASD
•We treat adults with ASD but do not take insurance
The responses I have been given regarding OT for adults with ASD:
•Sorry, we only treat children
•Sorry, we don’t treat ASD
Where are the services for adults with Aspergers? I need a weighted or pressure vest and probably a weighted blanket would help but I have no resources to get these or therapy that is geared towards ASD.
I am exhausted from calling dozens of places. Regular talk therapy doesn’t cut it…I’ve tried it for years…
Has Massachusetts forgotten that ASD children do in fact grow up to become adults?
I feel completely helpless.
