Adolescents with Asperger’s Syndrome and their parents.
Transitioning to becoming an adult is an awesome task for anyone, but the difficulties can become extremely challenging when the person has a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition. Teenagers with Asperger’s syndrome can become almost paralysed by anxiety, may have a very high intellect but very few life skills, and it can be very difficult to see the way ahead. Michelle and Tony have run groups for teenage boys and girls with Asperger’s syndrome for many years, and during this Information Night will present ideas and strategies they have found to be useful in assisting teenagers to transition successfully into adulthood.
