February 05, 2018

My son Edward age 21 has Aspergers.

He graduated from high school last year and having difficulties making new friends and going to activities due to his anxiety. His friends have moved on to college and work and it has been difficult forming new relationships.

  • Build confidence and independence
  • How to find and experiment with new activities/interests
