“Playdates were non-existent for my now teenaged autistic son, even in the summertime at a nearby park. I or my oldest daughter was his playdate because he usually had not reached the milestone for his age group yet. So, conversations with likeminded peers were hard. But when he did have a friend whom he shared lots of birthdays and memories with the friendship unfortunately sort of withered away :-(. We never really got closure for that relationship either and he speaks about it to this day…. but he has moved on to form other relationships and that in itself is huge and such a blessing. Remember to keep in mind that all autistic people are not ‘alike’ they are very different in all aspects of their personalities and unique in their challenges. “
