Friends for young adult with autism

Christi - posted on 12/12/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




My son will be 24 on Sunday and is very unique in that he is extremely social. He was diagnosed with PDDNOS when he was 2 and later with Asperger's although he doesn't fit the criteria. He does not have above-average intelligence (in fact in some areas the tests have shown him to be borderline CD, but we all know how accurate the tests are for autism). Even though he is very social, he is having trouble making friends, and I was wondering if you had any ideas. He did go to one or two Asperger's support group meetings near our house, but he said he didn't have anything in common with anyone there. He doesn't get fixated on one topic and gets annoyed when others do. He enjoys video games and is a great drummer.
