I have a 15 year old son who has had problems his whole life making friends. He is on the mild spectrum of asbergers although besides a slight speech issue, no one even realizes he's "different" than other kids. He was looking forward to starting high school this year because to him it was a fresh start away from middle school and hoped he would be able to make at least one friend but still hasn't been able to. He tried the boyscouts but he felt like an outsider so that only lasted about 6 months. Now that his older brother has moved 4 hours away, he seems even more depressed and mostly stays in his room. It's sad to see his teenage years pass him by with no friends or girlfriends. I'm not sure where or who to turn to. Any suggestions?
