"My son often gets frustrated or even angry, some of this is due to environment and also his confidence. He will also sometimes get agitated before starting something but then settle down (I feel this is part of him and try to be pre-emptive and accommodate this). He also gets frustrated, sometimes angry, when he doesn't understand something that he feels he should ( he gets embarrassed by this, especially in front of other people) and needs space to quietly calm himself.
“I worried so much as my son has never been able to have friends and suffered badly in school with confidence issues. He never wanted to go to school and it was a real struggle just to get him out of the house. Now he wont miss going and has formed some close friendships. I cant explain the difference in him, or how it felt when he asked me could his friend come for tea."
