A few ideas: There are pluses if your powerful intellectual focus is on something that's useful. Get guidance reading & understanding others. Relationships are more important than being right. Say only nice things. Take up a strength sport. Get speech rx. If you tell others, "i was born a little different" rather than "i have a disease", they may well find you fascinating & likable.

Group Therapy: For kids/ teens with asperger's can be very beneficial - especially with improving social skills.
