I haven't told my 7 year old son that he is on the autism spectrum. i'm not really sure how to tell him and when i should. i want him to grow up as "normal" as possible and i don't what him to view himself as different. his quirks are obvious to some and not so obvious to others. his friends have noticed that he invades personal space and that he is "the smart kid in class". i'm not sure if i should tell him or if i do when i should and how? please help if you can.
