My 13yr old daughter has been recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder ("ASD"). It's great now understanding why she has certain behaviors but my biggest challenge is finding her the support she needs. Does anyone know of teen support groups for children with ASD in Durham, (Canada)?

Hi Nikki. I am not sure of support groups, but I have recently read up on some stories from families learning to manage certain behaviors that come with Autism. Have you ever looked into Essential Oils, or do you know about them? Ive heard multiple testimonials where parents have explained the positive differences in their childs' behavior from diffusing and applying these oils. I use them myself for certain ailments, they work amazingly. But of course your situation is more complex and every person takes to them differently. Anyway, just wanted to throw that out their. id be happy to get you on a Facebook group that might explain this a little better and get you in contact with similar families.
