Is It Asperger’s or Is It Adolescence?
Parents often ask two big questions about their teens: “Who is this person living in my house?” and “Is this behavior because of Asperger’s, or is this what all teens are like?” This workshop addresses both those questions. We cover adolescence and puberty and the special challenges it presents for teens with AS, as well as what you can-and cannot-do to help your teen meet those challenges. We also address parent/teen relationships and offer strategies to strengthen communication. Lastly, we focus on the information you need in these years to aid in your teen’s transition to adult life, and how AANE can help.
