This is one of my "future" concerns for my son...
Its not real high on the radar right now b/c he is 3 1/2. Well it is b/c sometimes he initiates communication by being passive aggressive -- pokes you in the eye, steps on your foot.
What he wants to say / do is interact w/ you but doesn't know how to start.
I think this is b/c ASD kids like my kid struggles w/ empathy.
Does your kiddo struggle w/ empathy? If so, how have you dealt with it?
