The child with ASD often has difficulty building social relationships of any kind, particularly friendships with peers. This can be frustrating for the child in every environment.
Learning social skills for the ASD child is often frustrating. They have a strong desire to "fit in" but don't know how to go about it and struggle with reading social cues.
There are many approaches to this problem, and finding the right fit for any child may take a combination of approaches to be successful. For parents, this can be especially frustrating as the inability to develop social skills can be a combination of deficits that may be difficult to discern.
