The older my DS gets the more he stands out with his autism.
It's so sad watching it happen and I can't do anything.
I see it a lot watching him "in his own little world" and I just can't get him out.
It's sad seeing all the kids interact and play and my son just running around alone.
Does he feel sad about the world or just doesn't see what's happening around him.
Watching him play football everyone is playing and he stops to have a look at the sky.
How do I snap him back to reality? How do I pop the bubble he is in and get him back?
Sorry it probably doesn't make sense just need to bring my feelings out into words

I could have written this word for word, with both of my sons, but mainly the older one as he is in school now.
The thing you need to know tho (this is what my therapist told me while i was seeing her about my heart ache over this is) it doesnt affect them the way it affects us. She used a percentage so i could understand.
If it affects me emotionally 100%, it affects my son around 60-70%. so my son might get upset, but it isnt reaching devastation level like it does me. (i hope im making sense)
*hugs* we do a lot of intervention to try and break the bubble. And we encourage them to be themselves completely. Just because its not how others act, doesnt mean its wrong.

What you said about football is how dd was with AFL. Individual sports work best. Other kids in teams were getting annoyed with her, but if she stops during a 100m sprint to look for bugs in the grass it only affects her, not other kids. If she stops 75m into a 100m freestyle race to roll on her back and stare at the sky, it only affects her.
