My son is three and has HFA. I would like to have the discussion about his Dx be an ongoing narrative rather than a bombshell. He's in a daycare setting, an integrated class, and a substantially separate ASD room. He's made statements like "other kids are hard, I'm just too hard" with regard to playground interactions and is asking NT peers who they're "working with" in class that day. I'm proceeding cautiously because I don't want to confuse him, but we've started to talk about how people are different and have strengths and weaknesses (Mommy wears glasses to help her see, Grandpa uses a cane to help him walk).
How have you approached this?
