Recommended Viewing:

Arman Khodaei, 20-something HFA, has posted several very helpful videos of his observations on things like eye contact, driving, and making friends. Writing as the parent of a young HFA, I need this kind of feedback from individuals who have already been where we are now. I hope you find it as informative and encouraging. Thanks, Arman. Here’s his channel on YouTube
