Valentine’s Day, or Friendship Day” as it is sometimes referred to in schools, is supposed to be a day to celebrate friendship and love. But for some kids on the Autism spectrum, it can be a reminder of how difficult it is for them to make and keep friends. Autistic kids have are hardwired sometimes differently when it comes to social cues, and humor. They can be blind to body language, they may not understand idioms or get some of the idiosyncrasy of social behavior that for some reason we have deemed as “normal”. Some children don’t have the huge social hurdles as others, and some kids are more blissfully unaware of there even being a problem, and for those kids I suppose there isn’t’ one. But for the kids in the middle, the older they are, the worse it may be.
