Comment on Extroverted Autism by Tanya Savko http://teenautism.com/2008/04/29/extroverted-autism/comment-page-1/#comment-1059104 Sun, 17 May 2015 23:03:21 +0000 http://teenautism.com/2008/04/29/extroverted-autism/#comment-1059104 Dear Billy,

Thank you so much for your comment. I’m glad to hear that your mom is helping you with being a social person who has autism. Most people would think that isn’t possible, but for some of us it’s very true. My son is 20 now and I still help him, and he is also working hard himself. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it. I wish you and your mom the best.

Sincerely,
Tanya

Throughout my everyday, I struggle with this problem. I know what it is like to want to socialize and not knowing how. Sometimes i get into people’s space without realizing that I’m doing that. That is why I’m working hard on my social skills. My mom works with me everyday.
