I am so relieved to have found this community. I have a twenty year old autistic daughter. Getting her out into the world has been very difficult but from posts I have seen here I see that I am not alone. She is very willing to help me around the house which is wonderful because I have many chronic illnesses. She is a gifted artist and writer as well. Inspired by some things I have read here I asked a friend of both my daughter and I who is a librarian, to see if she could volunteer there for a couple hours a week to gain some independence. My daughter respects this lady and loves that particular library. We will see what happens.
