My son is 9 and recently diagnosed. We have not told him anything other than "we are going to different doctors to have them help you with learning how to interact with your friends at school better." He hasn't questioned it and has never complained about not having friends (though I know he does not have any). He is a very naive child, so I'm not too sure he knows he does not have friends (so naive that at the neurologist's office, the dr. was telling us that one of the major problems was AS kids tend to get bullied. My son assured the dr. that that would not be a problem because his school is a "bully free zone." I'm not too big on labeling people, but at the same time will do whatever it takes to help my child live a fulfilling life. So my question is...When is it important to tell him so he can understand himself better? Do I wait 'til he asks or is that too late? I fear telling him now when he is so young. I worry that he will feel more different than he really is.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
