I am new to this group and needing help. I have a son who is 18 yrs. and was just diagnosed With Aspergers/high functioning Autism. He wants a friend who understands this disabling condition. He is the sweetest kid but needs a friend . He is struggling greatly with sensory overload attacks that have him depressed right now. Is there anyone out there 16-19 boy or girl whom he could correspond with? We are desperate as he has a terrible time making friends.
Also anyone experiencing their teen having repeated sensory overload? They are awful. We are a Christian family. I'm one sad mom watching her son hurt. God bless you and
Thank you for your reply .

My son was diagnosed with Autism but he was never given a real diagnosis to fit how he is. He is high functioning but does not have sensory issues. He is a junior in high school. Contact me via the email here and lets see if we can try to do something if my son is interested. I can not promise anything but to try.

Hopefully you'll find something to fit his needs. Do you have any resources in your immediate area?
