Hi, I'm finding it really hard to get my 6yr old son interested in socialising. He is absolutely fine in shops, meeting people when out and about,visiting family,having family over to the house etc. However, we thought it would be a good idea to enrole him in a local drama group. He went once and seemed okay, but when we got there the week after he had hysterics-he said it was too noisy and he couldn't cope (he has asd and adhd). We tried him in choir and he refused to go in, even with me staying. He wanted to go to karate but changed his mind at the last minute. What should I do? Just leave him until he decides he can cope? Force him to go?! Is this level of socialisation enough at 6 do you think? Apart from this I have no worries at all about taking him out of school, he has really blossomed so obviously being home educated is really working for him.
Thanks all
Debbie
