HELP!!! My 18yr old mildly challenged daughter has NO friends nor social outlet
I am beyond frustrated! I have an 18yr old daughter who has no friends. She does everything with family. She wants to befriend regular education students who don't want anything to do with her. To look at her, you wouldn't know that she had some mental challenges. She doesn't see herself as having some challenges but yet she can recognize that she can't do what the other students can do. Its very hard on the family because we don't get a break. She's very immature (largely due to her disability) and often times seems to prefer befriending younger teens 13-16yrs old. It causes a strain on my personal relationships. Other people don't have the patience to deal with her annoying habits and conversation. Some say that I make excuses for her. I don't make excuses for her I just understand her challenges. I must have patience with her, other people, patience is optional. Are there any of you out there with suggestions or live in the Texas area that have any suggestions?
