is there an over-the-counter treatment for asperger's syndrome?

No: Aspetget's syndrome is not likely to be helped by over the counter treatments. However, the associated problems with attention span will sometimes be helped with supplements such as fish oil. The full syndrome responds best to a multidisciplinary treatment involving various therapies and sometimes medications.

Maybe: While controversial, some parents swear that their child with some form of pervasive developmental disorder, respond favorable to dmg, or di-methyl glycine, which is over the counter at health food stores.
