Hi, I just found this site and am glad since i am going out of my mind. My child, who is now in college, was always in her own world and did not really seek out people. But she started noticing she was not part of social circles during adolescence and went through a very rough time in high school. I now realize there were things i should have done differently to support her, but did not understand at the time:( She is desperately unhappy now. I am searching for a therapist who specializes in Aspergers but have been unsuccessful. Our current therapist does not seem to be helping. Are there support groups? How ddo I find them? Any suggestions/help is greatly appreciated.
