I have a 15 year old aspergers daughter. She is joined to me at the hip. Well she feels comfortable alone and with her sisters in familiar spots like a well known restaurant or at home. But other than that she seems to want me with her. When we shop together she is literally attached to my hip. She wont wander off and look at things herself. It didnt used to be this bad. There was a time when her and her friends would wander and shop together but not anymore. I am not sure what happened.
When did independence start for your older teen aspergers kids? I know they are all different. But I just want to know if other parents of teens are going through this too.
