  • Gosh...I have a ten year old boy the same way. He is on the extreme high end of the Autism scale and is very very smart, but socially he is clueless. Other kids are always picking on him and being sooooo mean. I want to fight his battles for him, but know that at some point he needs to learn to fight them himself. So, I need the advice as well......
