I have a 13 year old with Aspergers and the older she gets, the less she is able to make friends. Kids that used to like her no longer want to have anything to do with her. We have tried sports and other organized activities, but she really just prefers to be home by herself. My husband thinks this is okay because it's just the was she is. I disagree and think that it's unhealthy to spend some much time home alone. I can't find any social skills groups or support groups in our area for her. I feel sad for her (and me) every day of her life. I just don't know how to help her "make" friends. She seems to believe that she has friends at school, but there is no one who calls her or who she gets together with on a regular basis. Does anyone know of any good way to help her? She's missing out on so much.
