Anyone Know Of Any Social Groups For Adolescents On The Spectrum In NYC Area?

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Good afternoon all. I am a parent of a 19 year old adolescent male, who is looking into joining a social group for my son. He has had trouble socializing but has expressed that he was open to it. It's been hard for him to adjust into his new school since he's been homeschooled for the last 4 years with little to no social interactions with his peers. I've tried to having him join virtual social gatherings when covid was at its peak but he refused to participate. I never wanted to force him. But… read more

His Father walked out on the family. He’s gotten worse throwing things. Breaking a window. His father absolutely forbid any kind of medication. Now that he’s not in the picture could my daughter get medication for him without the father’s consent?

My 33 Year Old Son Has Severe Autism And Is Severely Mentally Challenged. All Of A Sudden He Has Become Obsessed With Masturbating.

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Before he would occasionally (actually seldom) masturbate but now he does it all day, every day. Not sure what is going on and why this has changed. I am baffled. He is extremely low functioning and totally non-verbal. He does not know what he is doing or can be inappropriate. He would not understand even if I explained it to him. He has the cognitive comprehension of a 2-year old child in most areas.

A MyAutismTeam Member

I would talk to an ASD-knowledgable therapist, if you can.
