    It's just me again. I'm amazed that no amount of Googling (and I'm a good Googler) and posting here yields the kind of online service I described. Probably a good career opportunity for someone with a psych background.

    Online therapy has been on my radar for a while. I've been considering it off and on...but like everything else I haven't pulled the trigger on actually doing it.

    I've looked a bit more. "Online Therapy for Autism" doesn't mention Asp at all, unless I've missed it. Even their complete list of topics, which includes ADD, doesn't have Asp.

    Some I've heard of through podcast sponsorships, like BetterHelp, give you an online questionnaire but they ask very general things like "do you have trouble sleeping" and "are you feeling sad." There's no opportunity to say you specifically want an Asp specialist, so you'd just get a generalist.
