  • I would! Who knows, maybe you could make a new friend too! What could it hurt?

  • I would!

    Great opportunity for you to meet others, and to gain a possible long term friend for your son. No harm in trying it. If for some odd reason they think it's weird then they have issues. : )

  • My son is dx with Autism also.I have never been much of a stranger person, I love working with the public but don't like talking to my neighbors. At first I found it a bit odd to reach out and talk with strangers from his school (same kinda of circumstances) but then I thought this is a good opportunity for him to make a friend, he has never really had one before. I found out that his friends mother felt the same way and was very glad that I approached her and opened the line of communication. Do it he will thank you later and you will feel better about it afterward.

  • Yes, invite your son's friend to his party. It will give you a chance to meet his friend's parents and get to know them too.
