My son is 9 years old and was just recently diagnosed with Aspergers. He also has ADHD, but that was diagnosed years ago.. Anyway, my son would rather stay in his room ALL day with video games than play outside with other kids.. Its almost like he's a forgotten child... He will only come out to eat or shower.. Other than that he's content on being in there all the time... Will he ever want friendships? How do I get him interested? Like I said this is real new to us, not even a month, but Ive known for a long time that my child was socially awkward... but now I notice even more things.. like him obsessing over one or two topics... He is very bright in school.... He really has all the typical signs of Aspergers, so I wasnt shocked with the diagnosis, but now Im just not sure what to do with it!!!!
