Young people with High-Functioning Autism (HFA) and Asperger’s (AS) usually want to fit-in and have relationships with friends and classmates, but they just don’t know how to do so effectively. They lack an understanding of conventional social rules and often “appear” to lack empathy. In order to improve socialization, these “special needs” kids need to learn and focus on socialization from an “intellectual” standpoint. Things that come naturally for children without autism need concentration by those with it.
The ability to navigate everyday social interactions presents significant challenges for kids on the autism spectrum. Social situations that present difficulties can range from the fairly simple (e.g., engaging in a conversation with a peer) to the extremely complex (e.g., determining whether a peer who seems friendly is actually harmful in some way).
Examples of important social skills to be taught to HFA and AS children include (but are not limited to):

Opher's World

Bertie was a philosopher who spoke it like it was. What he said always made sense.

Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.
That makes sense to me. Fear of death is the main reason people are religious – fear of hell – fear of god. Not for me. Our destruction of nature has a lot to do with our fear of creatures and natural events. We seek to tame it.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
How true is that? The stupid always think they know while the clever know enough to be sure that it is never black and white.
