“I was pleased that he was in a group with his school buddy. He was so concerned about not making friends. It was great seeing him meeting on the lawn with his group playing games while music played in the background. After a few days, he talked less about his school buddy, and more about a “new buddy’” who cheered him on during a game and was a now his “new friend.” – ACT parent
