I am concerned about the way my son gets obsessed - how can I help him with this?

My 15 years old son has Aspergers and becomes obsessed with things. He is starting to show an interest in girls but I am concerned about the way he gets obsessed and wondering how to help him with this

    Hi @Vikki78,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here.

    There's a couple of groups here which may be of interest to you. I've moved this discussion into our Ask an ASD Advisor category, where @VioletFenn may be able to advise, but you may also find browsing the Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) category useful too.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please do get in touch.

    Hi @Vikki78

    @DannyMoore has explained it really well, I think - the way your son reacts is probably simply down to how his brain is 'wired'. But I do understand your concerns as he grows more interested in girls - the same thoughts have occurred to me about my own 13 yr old! 

    Does your son have any support workers at school or via CAMHS who help him with pastoral issues? My own son does 'Asdan' lessons which include how to manage social interaction in a way that won't make life difficult for him (because we all know how easy it is for other people to take things the wrong way!). Perhaps they have some ideas or would be prepared to work through some personal behaviour type stuff with him?
