Hi! I'm new to this group though I do belong to a few other groups online. My 17 year old daughter has Asperger Syndrome though sometimes she can swing to the more moderate place on the spectrum. She's in a wonderful high school that has an incredible autism program. She is in mainstream classes and receives support from the autism program and teachers. Her strongsuit is that she is very athletic which is unusual for AS kids. She plays basketball, soccer and runs track. My question is... can anyone recommend a group or club for teenage girls that openly includes kids with AS?? My daughter still has so many issues with boundaries with her peers and understanding social cues and appropriate dicussions. She receives on-going therapy and also was in an "all girls' social skills group" at Fraser when she was 12-15. She won't do church groups or girl scouts. I've tried that. Thanks!
