My 15 year old daughter is telling me she's very lonely and wants friends. She struggles to create those connections with having Autism and other challenges as well. I am looking for advice and any social groups in the Metro Detroit area that we can join so she is able to start building social connections. I am in a constant struggle and battle with her as she continues to seek male attention from the internet. Ugh! I am spent! Please help!

Yes, her internet access was taken away, unfortunately, she uses an ipad at school and reaches out to anyone and everyone. We have tried social skills classes at school and no luck. She has since been moved to another school that discourages the social interactions due to the type of school it is, thus adding to the frustration. Thank you for your response.

Have you checked with her doctor for possible resources regarding places where she might be able to learn about social skills and practice them. Have you tried getting her into a club or into a group that is interested in the same things she is? As for the internet, do you not even keep tabs on that?
