TEODORO, Marília Consolini; CASARINI, Karin A.  and  SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio. Therapeutic interventions in people with Asperger's Syndrome: a literature review. Barbaroi [online]. 2013, n.38, pp. 6-25. ISSN 0104-6578.

This study aimed at reviewing of a Brazilian scientific literature about the Asperger's Syndrome (AS), with emphasis on therapeutic interventions developed in the Brazilian context. Ten articles published between 2001 and 2011 were recovered at LILACS, SciELO and PePSIC. Most of these studies are empirical. Interventions are predominantly made by Speech-Language Therapy, due to the characteristics that the bearer has related to losses in interaction and communication skills. Overall, it was found that the therapeutic interventions applied to patients with AS have positive effects and cause changes in behavior and improved the quality life, and can be observed that the therapeutic work associated with the intervention in the family tends to ensure greater benefits to both.
