Being a teenager can be tough. We are here to offer programs to help make the most of their formidable years. The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin strives to help teens learn about the many changes that they have going on, how to meet their ever-changing needs and become more socially aware of others. By providing a forum to help make friends and form long-term relationships, we help take some of the tough out of being a teen in these transition years.
