My son is 5yrs old and has HFA / Aspergers. Obviously every day of our lives is pretty much dedicated to his development and understanding of the world in a variety of ways. He has made remarkable progress (from being non-communicative and repetitive to full speech and little obsessive behaviours) However, his social skills and understanding seem to be developing really slowly. I find it such a hard thing to teach and there's pretty much no help available to him for that specific area. I'm just wondering if anyone else has an aspie / ASD child who they've been able to help in this way. It breaks my heart to think that all he has coming to him is bullying and no friends. I'll do whatever it takes to help my son now and in the future.
