I went to bed last night with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart. One of the blessings I love the most bout my son will hold him back from having friends; having people to hang with. My son is highly intelligent but lacks the skills to tell if someone is being mean....his social skills are improving but they will always lack for he has been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome......autism spectrum disorder.
My son can ride a bike, skate board, play video games and is very, very good at it I might add. Excellent in school. He can swim, knows karate, plays sports that are more single person related or two person related. How is that any different then other kids? Grant you his vocabulary may babyish at times and he might point his finger up in the air when he talks and he may not look at you in the eye every time but he has manners and would never be mean. He just wants to have friends....he wants someone to hang with.
