Welcome to the group! The best thing to do is get them involved with a social skills therapy which can be done through a speech therapist in the IEP. If your sons do not have an IEP, you need to request an evaluation for Special Education services (http://www.wrightslaw.com/) in writing to the school. There is a great database of information at http://www.aspergersyndrome.org/. You can find a good local support group through Autism Society (http://www.autism-society.org/) and Easter Seals (http://www.easterseals.org/). You can find activities and sports through Special Olympics (http://www.specialolympics.org/), Variety Club (http://www.usvariety.org/), and TheARC (http://www.thearc.org/).
