Treatment for Individuals with
High Functioning Autism (Huntington, NY)
You see your teen struggle at every bend. You want what's best for him, but you are constantly concerned about how he will deal with the rest of his life. You are unsure if he can go to college and do all the things typical kids are able to do. He gets upset easily, has trouble making friends. You used to be able to set up play dates for him, but he's too old now. You feel hopeless, alone, and scared for your teen.
With a little help...
You can't even believe all the strides he's made. He feels more confident during social situations, and everything seems to be a bit more calm lately. You find that he is able to do things on his own, and has even started participating at school. He's able to express himself in a more helpful way now and you're so excited for him as he navigates high school. He's even started asking about colleges! As a parent you feel relieved that he’s accomplishing so many things that he was scared to do in the past.
How do we get there…
Together we will come up with a plan to help your teen feel more engaged in the social world, and feel less stressed in different situations. They will learn:
How to make friends and keep them
How to be more socially aware
How to cope with uncertainty
How to be more self-aware
How to advocate for him/herself
So much more!
Teens are trying to be independent during this stage in their life. They are trying to find out who they are and how they fit in this world. This can sometimes be scary for a parent of an Autistic individual. You want to make sure that your son or daughter feels like they have the ability to achieve their goals.
