Finding the proper support groups /therapy/ friend networking for our young adult daughter diagnosed HF Aspergers in her 20's. Our daughter has a BA in History from Taylor University, IN. Has much difficulty finding friends like her, social groups and employment especially since she has never had any therapy and her lack of appropriate social skills gets in the way of quality of life/ happiness. She feels embarrassed, shame and isolated. Her hearts desire is to find friends she can relate to and who can relate to her, do fun things together and support one another.
1) Referrals to social skills training groups, qualified therapists in the Indy/Carmel, IN area. 2) Young adult friends/support groups/ activities 3) Job networking 4) Support groups for parents with young adult children on the AS, diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.
Parent of 23 year old female diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum with Asperger's. Daughter seeking friends/ activities/ support groups/ socializing with like-minded people. Husband & I seeking support group for parents of young adults w/AS.
This is my first experience attending an event through Indy Aspergers Meetup Group. It was very helpful.
