Hello, I just joined today and am inspired by so many positive posts about parenting a child/young adult on the spectrum. My 21 year old lives at home and has struggled with school and jobs, so currently is not doing either. I suggested to them that we use the summer as a “work on you” time. I am a teacher and am available to support them as needed. After reading some of the articles and the background on the creators of this app, I decided it’s a “work on US” summer. I realized my communication needs an overhaul. Also, they have found a therapist who specializes in helping queer people on the spectrum and they are doing weekly video visits. I know I will learn a lot on here and I wish everyone the best. Thanks for setting up this community!
