I am the proud mother of a 13 yr old boy who has high functioning autism. Our family has struggled through the early years, and are now making our way through the teen years. AJ, struggles with social interactions and accepting changes. He plays beside other children but not with them. developmentally he is around 10 yr old. His biggest struggle recently is kids his age tend to think he is "goofy" acting and this frustrates and hurts his feelings because he doesn't understand why they think that. AJ is a friendly kid who loves to talk, although most interactions are not self initiated. Currently AJ is getting ready for middle school and we are all trying to prepare him for all the changes and new things he wil have to deal with there.
