Re: Asperger Child and College Anyone?

Peggy,
My daughter has Aspergers and is in her senior year in college. She has lived at home the entire time. It is taking her 5 years also.

Tell your husband he should thank his lucky stars. It sounds like your daughter is doing an amazing job. Going for 5 years is not too much to ask. Many "typical" students take 5 years.

I do not have any answers for the social issue. We are fighting that battle, also and it is heartbreaking sometimes. Good Luck!
