Teenage Girls with Autism (High Functioning)

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

Hi....I was wondering if there are any other mums of girls with ASD that could help me cope with the roller coaster ride of hormonal 14year old girl?

Anyone wanting to contact me with younger children who want any help with questions please contact me! I have worked with under 10's and adults with Autism....mostly males.

Take care,

Cheers....Terri

I had a crash course in menstruation with mine. She started hers suddenly. I just had to sit down and explain the facts to her. I kept it short and factual.

Oh, jeez, you guys are making me scared. My daughter is 9, and hitting puberty right now. She's already rebelling more and more, and I am NERVOUS! How did you all handle menstruation?

I would love to chat with you. I have a fifteen year old girl with PDD-NOS. We've been looking for support too.

Hi, Terri. A bit late (two years!) but I am definitely interested in talking about teen girls on the spectrum. My dd is 12 1'2, just got her period, and is a genuine "teen", even if still 12. She's become way more moody, and pretty negative about everything... whereas she had been a really happy kid... I have an older NT daughter (only 14 months between the two), and feel like the "teen" part is definitely stronger than the "ASD" part right now (my older daughter is definitely a hormonal nightmare!). Any thoughts like "been there, done that" to share ???

My youngest girl has Aspergers, I can't help with teen troubles. I have a friend at work whos sister has Autism, and I can ask her if you have specific questions...
