Therapy probably hasn't worked because it wasn't aspergers friendly.

I'm looking for a suitable therapy for an adult. Our doctor recommend to start auditory therapy to help him calm down and encourage his brain to process sensory, cognitive and emotional information more effectively. My friend told me that b-calm therapy is worth attention and helpful, but unpleasant and irritating at first.... So I was thining to find some other trerapy or program maybe that won't be so difficult. I found some reviews pages like http://www.sensory-therapies.com/, but there is too much info...
I want to ask for your advice: are sensory therapies aspergers friendly? Or should I focus on something else?

Have you tried meditation or relaxation techniques? I overcame years of alcohol and drug abuse and I found 12-step fellowships provided companionship, but they are not for everyone. I found tai chi the easiest meditation because it gives something physical to focus on. Zen philosophy can also be very calming.

Recently I've had benzoate for the first time but also gluten in a salad that was prepared for me. I've been much grumpier and less focussed as a result. I didn't check the ingredients of the tonic water used for accidental gluten contamination before I drank it because I panicked. I've had a lot on recently with university work.
Books which I've found explain mine and people I work with better include "people with autism behaving badly" by John clements and "behavioural concerns and asd" (can't remember the author).
Gigaday I'm pleased you found a programme to help you overcome your drug and alcohol addiction. You made the important point there that responses to therapies will be individual.

An important statistic is that 95% of behaviour that challenges is caused by hidden physical pain.
