I'm the mother of a young adult who received his diagnosis of high functioning autism when he was in primary school. He coped ever so well at school and uni (albeit he commuted to uni from home), and I felt confident in how to help him with issues that arose. However, I'm now struggling to help him become an independent young adult, and am thinking I really ought to have done more to help him with his social anxiety at a much earlier age. Still, here we are. I'd really appreciate any information I can share with him about overcoming social anxiety as a young adult, and where and how he can connect with other young adults to reduce his isolation and develop his self-confidence.
