I'm in an alternative program in my school where you're very close with the kids in your class, but there's this kid in my class who I always didn't really like because he was so different. I realize now that it was unfair of me to judge him, because today he was crying and when I pulled him to the side and asked him what was wrong and if I could help, he told me he was diagnosed with Asperger's this year and feels really alone and out of place. What do I do to make him feel more included? Is there anything special I should know about teens with Asperger's that could help me include him a little better or relate to him more?
Thanks in advance!
