Author: Dr. Wahlberg

Video Summary

  • Communication in socializing for individuals with Asperger’s is divided into three levels.
  • Level 1 involves basic greetings like saying “hi” to anyone passing by to acknowledge their presence.
  • Level 2 includes more personalized interactions, such as asking about someone’s weekend based on previous conversations.
  • Level 3 pertains to the inner circle of close acquaintances who really know the individual.
  • Teaching young people with Asperger’s about Level 1 communication helps them understand the importance of small talk and acknowledging others, even if it seems mundane.
  • It’s important to teach flexibility in social exchanges, including the use of white lies when necessary, to navigate social interactions effectively.
