One of the biggest misunderstandings about autism is that autistic people lack social motivation and want to be on their own. Autistic people have a need for connectedness, just like all other human beings. However, getting connected and staying connected is quite a challenge for them. Many of the relational skills and knowledge that neurotypical people seem to develop effortlessly and spontaneously are clogged by the way an autistic brain understands the world.
In this webinar on autism and friendship, we explore the challenges autistic people face in making friends and keeping them and how they experience friendship. But we will also address some strategies for teaching and supporting them in the area of friendship. In particular, we will focus on the importance of clarifying for autistic people the abstract, vague and context sensitive rules and ingredients of friendship.
