Hi, my name is mandii!
My son is on the autism spectrum, now aged 17 after completing mainstream school he attends college, his social skills suffer following many years of bullying, though he blossomed since being in college. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me, if it is right or wrong for my son to enjoy going out to play with much younger children in our local community? It has been brought to my attention that the parents of the younger children may see it as wierd for a 17 year old to be playing footie/ cycling along with their children . I would be grateful for your opinions
