Try a local Mother's of preschoolers play group. Small play groups to get him comfortable with a couple of kids his age and wouldn't be as overwhelming as a larger group.



My son has PPD/ADHD and prefered when he was younger to not be around a great deal of kids nor family. Many years later, he has adjusted and will talk to just about anyone. This took a great deal of prayer and support from his IEP team, teachers, family, church family, etc.



Don't ever think that taking time to play with him won't help because it does. If its ten minutes its a start!

Just don't make a big deal about, I had and some have the same problem with my 8 year old being an only child. They really just enjoy their own company. Me having brother and sisters I thought something was wrong with him. But the older he gets he socialized better than me because he takes his time finding a friend and they are true friends! I hope I help!

My little one has the same problem but he is autistic......I took him to a friends birthday party a couple of weeks ago and it was so sad watching him play alone....he wanted nothing to do with the other children...but the amazing part of that is 'he was ok with that'...the only sad thing is the other children didn't understand and would try and play with him and he would just put his arm over his eyes and wave a wand he held in his hand to make them disappear..... went to his school the other day (he is in special education) for a splash day and again he played on his own, but what was amazing, he would play right next to the other kids, but no one bothered anyone, they were all autistic but played alone but didn't try and take things from one another, they all knew their own space and respected the other one's space. they were all very happy to be left alone.....no fights, no arguments, no taking one another 's toys....no hitting.....it was very peaceful.......and Tyler had an awesome time.....he will play with children older than him, but not his age or younger....

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Thank you very much, I am praying ever since he was diagnose with ADHD and ever since he has been medicated, his doctor tells me the same thing but it just tear me up when I see kids push him away and won't work with him...:( but I guess this is the way it is,  He is super intelligent just went into 4th grade with all A's, Thank you for your advise. It always help when you see other people who are going through or went through the same thing.



 



PD: what is PPD???
