Why Does My Teenager with Autism Seem to Hide or Disengage?

Have you ever wondered why your teenager on the autism spectrum seems to want to hide or hibernate? Have you ever wondered what it is like to be overwhelmed? Mark Hutton, M.A. presents this video explaining what a teenager on the spectrum goes through and why they feel the need to take a break and disengage from others.

Although the terminology in the United States has changed and we no longer use the classification of Asperger’s Syndrome in the DSM, this video is very helpful in its explanation. This video can also be found on My Asperger’s Child.
