My son has always been an very quiet but intelligent boy with a bit of an obsession with computers and computer games from an early age. However he always seemed to get along socially until late high school, when he withdrew into himself. He's now at university and finding himself getting very isolated and suffering from anxiety in social situations. He is also unable to express himself verbally when asked a question. This has been something long-standing but which within the family we were used to. I suspect he may be on the autistic spectrum, or suffer from expressive language disorder, which then naturally causes him anxiety in social situations (how can you connect with people when you are unable to articulate your thoughts?).
Who can I approach to find help for him? I hate to see him struggling with this. Does anyone have any advice?
