Hi Rioters,

Anyone have any advice for a mum with a son with Asperger’s – academically very high functioning but socially shy and anxious?

She is moving to the ACT and is looking for the best college (for year 11 and 12 doing tertiary studies) that is supportive and protective of students with Asperger’s.

I was looking to get advice from the Autism Asperger ACT organisation but it appears to have closed down.

If anyone can assist with recommendations it would be appreciated.

Thanks very much for all of your replies. The family are planning to live in the Hawker area in Belconnen. I have passed on all recommendations for them to investigate further. Much appreciated.

If Northside then St. Francis Xavier College in Florey. If Southside then Trinity Christian School. Public Colleges are very hit and miss, unfortunately. Some people have brilliant experiences – others have horrendous experiences.
