I wonder if anyone else has had this problem. My son is 13 and was diagnosed a year ago. We started counseling at a children's hospital near our home; the psychologist is supposed to be an expert in Asperger's and we have been working with a grad student under her. This is a very sweet young woman and at first it went well, but gradually has gone downhill. My son has been telling me that he doesn't want to go because this girl thinks he is "retarded" and he is sick of talking about all his problems. The last time we went, he just shut his mouth and refused to speak about anything for the first half of the hour. It was such a waste of time and I left so discouraged. (My husband also refuses to go now because he doesn't see it helping our son and gets depressed after every session.) I guess we could try a different counselor, but I wonder if we'll just have the same thing with every one? Do some adolescents just refuse to cooperate at all? I am at my wits end and very discouraged.
