Hi. Just had a talk with my 20 yr old son who I believe has ASD. He knows he is different than the "norm" and says that he has looked at some info about the spectrum. The problem is that it makes him feel bad about himself. Everything I say to try to make him feel better seems to make him feel worse. He refuses counseling. I am worried that he will sink deeper and deeper into depression and defense mode. Any advice on what to do or say to make him feel better about himself?
