What cultures of non english speaking countries would like an AWA separate private group for their language? Let us know how you feel about having one just for your language?
From Anonymous: How can I help my 11 year old daughter not to play to rough or touchy with her peers. Or don't say rude things to get their attention? It looks to me she is trying hard to have friends but she doesn't know how to approach. At the same time I see her classmate girls or team players get annoyed with her. So I see her face turned worried and I pretend I don't see that so my daughter doesn't feel pitty. I'm really having trouble now that she's growing up because it's like she's starting to notice she's different and she's trying to fit in. By the way I have her in a lot of activities of her interest like drawing basketball musical theatre guitar lesson baseball but still get isolated in between breaks she doesn't interact with pears She has Aspergers was diagnose at 8years old We're from CA
