My son is basically a happy child but unlike a lot of asperger kids, he longs for friends. His twin is very outgoing, popular, and has lots of friends. In some ways, that makes it harder on my son with aspergers. He doesn't understand why he isn't invited every where his brother is. When they were younger, most of the time both boys would be invited places. As they have gotten older, that is less and less the case.
We have never put them in the same classroom at school (well, since kindergarten) and they are involved in a few different activities. This does not seem to matter. It breaks my heart to see my son home when his brother is out with friends, etc. but it is not fair to make one son take the other. I guess I need advice on how to help my son.
Sorry that I have written so much.
Any comments are more than welcome! And if any of you with younger children with aspergers have questions, please ask. I will help if I am able.
