Rejection is Unbearable! Where Do Teens With Autism Go? The Reality for mid functioning teens with ASD.

Today I feel so sad and discouraged. Lately every door I fight to open for Nick gets closed. Seems the answer is the same wherever I go. Church camp Summer Retreat, "NO", 

 Vocational School, "NO", Summer Camp...just kicked out. He's just not, well "enough".  Not independent enough, not behaved enough, not spiritual enough.


Nick is not high functioning when it comes to socialization, and he's not low functioning. When frustrated he might go along, or he might tantrum. He might go months without a single community outburst, but if he has one, it's back to the drawing board. It's like all progress has been erased in the eyes of the world. It's just not enough.

He's an in-between, and there is not place for "in-betweens". No where is there a bridge that takes him from here to there. But I am not willing to settle.  


  1. I’ve read through a number of the articles in your website , and I love the way you blog. I wanted to leave a little comment to support you and wish you a good continuation.

  2. This is not acceptable, I myself am trying to make a change in this for teens n his sight..Wish me luck its hard to get folks on board.

  3. I am not sure where you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
