I think strengths based interventions are good starting point. Focus on what your son likes doing and use that as a stepping stone to build bridges with other teens. The hope is that if something clicks he might feel motivated if he finds he has something in common with others. Unfortunately, a PhD...

Basically, anything structured that throws people together allows him to make connections without having to awkwardly walk up to people and make introductions. He uses social scripts a lot to guide his interactions, too. Slightly under-trying seems to be the zen of it all, as weird as that might so...

I think the children, even teenagers, will like the dog. :D In truth, it might be a little distracting for them— at first. But as a person with a service animal, I’m confident you have skills in briefly and matter-of-factly explaining the job of this dog. And you can translate this to age-appropriat...

In addition to being autistic sopranos, we are also both Asian American, we love our acrylic nails and share similar quirky fashion sense. And often it’s the seemingly small things [which are really not that small in reality! :D ] that provides like two-thirds of the back-and-forth of a friendship.

I remember an old movie about a UK school. And the regular teacher was teaching boys’ Phys. Ed., and the assignment was to run up to a pommel horse type thing, plant your hands on it and launch yourself, and then land with both feet on the mat, with the teacher spotting you. One, the teacher’s not t...

I don't think sport needs to be funded or universally expected of all students. I don't think kids should be forced into it, even in Phys Ed. I think they should learn basic fitness but beyond that, join community teams. I even have a problem with typical Phys Ed. It’s this high stakes thing in whi...

. . . they sent a teacher who used to teach at my middle school because they thought she knew me better. . .

Here’s retired quarterback Brett Favre saying kids should wait till age 14 to play tackle football. And this would get the lion’s share of what I’m talking about.


Brett appears in an ad for the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

In the UK rugby in school is mandatory pretty much. I would say unless played professionally it should be acceptable at any age.

I guess technically, you have choices of other sports but not really? Or the social disapproval is too widespread. Is it something like this?

If Ukraine lets Russia "save face," it would be equivalent to allowing Hitler to "save face" via the Munich Pact of 1938. Yes, it was a bad deal. And therefore, for the 80+ years since and perhaps for the next 100 years, I suppose we must feel (?) duty-bound or similar to view a...
