Yes, there is help for children (teens and adolescents) with Asperger's Spectrum Syndrome.  There is specialized academic and residential support near Connecticut.  Kids with Asperger's from Connecticut struggle in almost all social settings, especially at school. They simply act "different" from most kids. Asperger's kids get teased, ridiculed, and made fun of by their peers. Unfortunately, even though they may not know why they are being mistreated by their peers, they do feel the pain.  They get teased for being "different" but they don't know how to act "normal". In other words, they don't know how to stop the teasing.

Life Quotes:  "Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.Helen Keller

"Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.Thomas Jefferson
