Parents of Teens and Transition Age Young Adults (through age 22)

It’s no secret that teen years are difficult for every parent; however, parenting a teen with an Asperger profile complicates this time with a set of new and different challenges.

Many parents feel overwhelmed and unsure about what to focus on as their children move through adolescence. But you don’t have to panic. AANE is here to help you find the path that is right for you. There is no single way to help your teen and family thrive. At AANE you have access to the collective wisdom of our parent-professional staff, and our extended parent community, to help guide you on your parenting journey. You are not alone!
