In this short video, parents talk about encouraging their teenage children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to socialise. One mother says starting high school made her son want to socialise more, but not all teenagers with ASD are interested in socialising and friendships. They might have fewer friends than peers, but they can still form good friendships and share common interests.
