My son is 10 y/o w PDD NOS. He's currently in a 9 1/2 classroom special needs room . He has good language and fair reading skills, struggles alot with math.(so do I!!) He would struggle to keep up w a regular class and has behavior problems, although they are getting better. My problem concerns his social interactions. Most of the kids in his class behave sort of the same way. He's in a school with multiply disabled kids. What can I do to help his interactions ? The school he's in is great but limited in areas like after school activities, clubs. His brother is seven , but also on the spectrum and he seems to want friends his age.

Playdates with his peers. Some churches are starting programs for kids with special needs.
