Q:

How can I help a student who is insecure about dating?

I am a secretary at a high school and there is a student who likes to visit and confide his problems to me. He has a huge crush on a girl and at some point would to date her.  He often worries his coincidental "meetings" might be construed as stalking "his words" and he is very emotional, insecure and  I am at a loss at this point how to advise him any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

What the Expert Says:

Children with Asperger Syndrome often need social coaching.  I would recommend him to your school psychologist and/or with his family to a local agency that deals with the anticipatory guidance that teens with autism spectrum disorders benefit from.
