Hi, one of our 11yo Son’s Autism traits is severe anxiety about meeting people he knows out of their usual context, for example, school friends out of school. It has got to the point that we struggle to get him to leave the house and he’d rather stay in his bedroom all day. If anyone has experience of something similar, what strategies have you used to help as we’re struggling to know how to help him? Thanks!
What are his interests? Can you find any clubs or societies that cover those within a reasonable distance of where you are? I guess the thing is to try and help him find reasons why he wants to go out.
