If you have a high school student with Autism Spectrum Disorder [ASD], a local organization has a fabulous monthly activity for your teen. The Orange County Asperger’s Support Group [OCASG] and College Living Experience-Costa Mesa have teamed up for TEEN NIGHT on the first Friday of each month. Activities change each month but it’s a fun time for the kids to hang out with teens–along with college-age mentors. It’s a big hit.
The idea is to get kids out of their room, out of the house and integrating with others in the community and that’s exactly what’s being done with this group. Determine what your teen is interested in and help him/her get involved.
This article gives you an idea of the variety of other service organizations that exist here in the OC.
