Welcome Trisha!

My son is still young (preteen) but I know it's not going to get all that easier as he gets older.  (((hug)))

I gave a 22 year old autistic cousin who gets angry that he can't drive or go away to college like his sister. His mom has turned their upstairs into a "bachelor pad" for him and he has been taking classes at the community college for years now. He still needs to be driven everywhere but these few changes have really made him happier.

When they're high functioning I think it's so hard on them bc they appear normal and feel normal in most ways so don't understand why they're treated differently by us.

I'm not sure what the right thing is to do as they get older. I just try to make him happy and always follow my heart....I have to do what feels right to me

Hi! My son is 15 and has aspergers as well. I have noticed that some things do get easier with age. Also I have noticed he does mature just a bit slower than most.

In some ways my son is about 2 to 3 years behind in maturity. I come to realize that my child will get there one day just at his own pace. Do you see this with your son too?
