Hi
 
I just wanted to welcome everyone to our new and improved boards.  I think that everyone will love the new updated boards, they are so easy to navigate and to read. 
 
I am Marti and I will be here to help you with any questions you might have and to enjoy the boards with you!  Please let me know any suggestions or feedback you might have.  If there are any great boards we should add, I would love to hear what you think.
 
Again, welcome and I look forward to getting to know everyone soon.

I recently sent a post to this message board and I feel that I should be posting with other ASD parents. When dealing with everyday issues things are completly different when dealing with aspergers teens. This is an impotant issue for me and I am anxious to get some feedback. IS there an asperger message board which I can post on? There are so many other asperger issues I need support with.

Hi mkirpes,

 

We do not have a aspergers board at the moment.  We might look at adding one in the future and I will pass that suggestion on but for the time being, you can start discussions about anything to do with aspergers and ask for help that way---it will be a great way to discuss with other parents.

This is more of a question. I have a seventeen year old just finished high school. We made a deal for the summer of curfues and such. simple week days monday - thursday 2:00 am. weekends she can stay out as long as i know where she is staying and an adress and a name. Well this seems too hard for her to comply with. She will start Jr.Colledge in the Spring. Help what can I do. Without pushing her farther out the door.She wants to leave. Why I have no clue. So any HELP would be great.

thanks Susie

Hey Susie,

 

Welcome to the boards.  When she goes to Junior College will she live in the dorm or at home? 

 

I would say that it is natural for most kids to want to leave home around the time they graduate from high school.  I would stick by my rules if I were you, because it is still your house and if she uses moving out to threaten you then she will run your house, not you.
