Hello, I am new to this board, but wonder if anyone has any input for me...My AS daughter is about to turn 8, and it seems things are getting ROUGHER instead of improving. We are having serious issues taking her out in public at all: I mean, to the grocery, to the library, to a restaurant, anywhere. It's like taking a ticking time-bomb out in public. She is completely unpredictable, runs away, lashes out at others, behaves horribly...I could just die of embarrassment. I find myself apologizing and making the 'She has Aspergers Syndrome" excuse to perfect strangers. Will I ever be able to take her out in public again? Any input you can give would be much appreciated. Thank you.
