I'm trying to do a little background research to figure out how much of my experience is shared by other parents of kids on the spectrum. So, if you're a parent of a child who has difficulty with pragamatic language - using language with comfort and fluidity in social situations - and you're willing to share your story (and possibly be quoted elsewhere), can you leave a comment and tell me about any of the following:
Social situations you've attempted with your child and how they've played out;
Social situations you've avoided because the challenge feels too great;
Social successes your child has had;
Things you do with your child to prepare him/her for social situations.
Thanks in advance, friends. And for those who have asked - yes, once this article is out, I will definitely post a link. In the meantime, maybe we'll all find some wisdom we can use (or at least the reassurance of a few good "me too"s) in the comment section.
