My daughter is almost 17 & was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome when she was 3 years old. Until now we have been coping relatively well with her behaviour but in the last year we have struggled greatly - especially regarding her being lonely. She used to love her own company but not so much anymore.
She has a couple of friends but NEVER gets invited to their houses - instead one in particular is around a lot at ours.
She has so much to offer in a friendship - polite, funny, quite articulate & with all the usual AS quirks that make her unique.
We currently live in Cumbria but will be moving to Preston hopefully this year. Does anyone have any tips for making friends ? She is a member of a Nintendo group & has "friends" all over the world she messages daily - but she just wants to be invited for tea !
