  • I still have extreme difficulty joining a group or conversations. I’m labeled shy, snob, aloof, awkward because I prefer to be alone not bother with socialization.

  • This is great. I wish I had more direction and emphasis on bonding with peers in my own chidlhood.
    I think that is critical to great communication skills as an adult and maintaining lifelong friendships and partnerships easier.
    #IMO

  • i get anxiety i have mental health i cant sleep i lose concentration i want to snap and scream so pls when can this stop is the worry worst than the condiction

  • I am literally the girls in this study. The description of their activities on the playground described me as a child so well it’s scary. I’m 31 now and only just finding out I am autistic.

  • Instead of telling autistic girls they need to socialize even when they might not want to, we should help those girls enjoy recess on their own terms in unique ways that work for each individual. I hated recess because I was told that I should be running around and playing with other kids and I thought that that was the only option and the right thing to do, so I didn’t allow myself to pursue the idea of doing anything else. But I still struggled with playing with the other kids and was repeatedly excluded or just didn’t enjoy the games they were playing. So I did just about nothing at all at recess, feeling like I should be doing something I couldn’t do and wanting to escape. Feeling like any other way of doing recess was wrong. I really wish I could go back and encourage my younger self to take a book or some paper and markers outside for recess and do something I actually enjoyed, like reading or drawing. My teachers discouraged this kind of thing, telling me I needed to get exercise. But I wasn’t going to get exercise or socialize anyway, I was just going to feel guilty about not doing that, so I might as well have given up conventional ideas about what kids should do at recess and have just let myself do something that was fun for me.

  • As a child i remember spending quite a bit of my time alone on the playground, however i do remember some days i would join a group of boys who would dig below the sand to the tougher dirt, in order to construct little tunnels and ledges to build epic little ‘cities’. I find it interesting because the activity wasn’t really a sports game, instead it was an act of creativity. In fact, when i was getting tested for autism i was outright told by the doctor that ‘autistic people really aren’t creative’ despite the fact that i know multiple people on the spectrum who are very highly creative. I know im rambling but my point is that i think social behavior amongst boys and girls {including those on the spectrum} is a bit more complex than given credit for in this study. otherwise, i am glad that studies like this are being done to at least show how differently autism can be expressed in girls as opposed to boys because of expectations of how we are ‘supposed to’ behave. I think oftentimes there is an incredible pressure on girls to be more social and males to be more active.

  • I have to agree with all the other comments here. The findings of the study seem sound, but the conclusions and aims stated at the end sent a shiver down my spine as a woman with ASD. I spent so much time as a child forcing myself into the ‘joint-engaged’ scenarios but AT BEST that meant silently suffering through discomfort and boredom. I had sufficient (masking) social skills to build a group of friends and not be an outcast, but internally I could barely tolerate much time in their presence despite thinking they were ‘nice enough kids’. With no language to describe this and no external recognition, my internal experience was not only incredibly isolated, but also with an alienating sense of unreality. The only times I actually enjoyed were solitary or with adults, and the only reason I didn’t spend all of my time alone was social pressure and my internal desire to fit in and utilise the power of social connections. As I got older this became more and more difficult to tolerate and I would ‘hide’ from my friends in the library or simply alone in a corridor as often as I could. By mid teens I had become so depleted that I had a breakdown and point blank refused to see any of my friends again. They were no doubt very hurt and confused by this, as on the surface I was reasonably popular and well-liked (largely due to my ‘mentor’ or ‘therapist’ role in the group).

    10 years after leaving school I am still in therapy for severe c-PTSD, in large part caused by my experiences of the school system. Looking back I desperately wish I had been given the opportunity to move into some kind of alternative education which allowed me to socialise and learn with older people. I was also enormously academically advanced and spent all of school stultifyingly bored, so this would have worked well in every aspect. If, as this speaker suggests, I had been pressured into spending even more time with my peers, I can only imagine this would have increased my misery and distorted sense of self (a factor in c-PTSD), pushing me to the point of breakdown even earlier in life.

  • More bullshit from idiots who profess to know all.
    Forgot, these idiots received money from, ultimately, taxpayers.
    Career government idiots…call it school…

  • As a 25-year-old, struggling to be diagnosed with ASD, this video is incredibly helpful. I was a really normal kid until about grade 5, when I receded into a shell and didn’t leave it until well after high school. It’s incredibly difficult to be taken seriously, I once had a psychiatrist tell me that I can’t be autistic because I don’t act like Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory.

  • Yeah this study is garbage. When I was a child I walked around the playground alone talking to myself and playing games in my head. Other times I would pick up
    trash around the playground because I enjoyed it. I did not WANT to play with my friends on the playground. I found it boring and draining. I remember wanting to be social but I never enjoyed how other people socialized so I chose solitude because of that.

  • What worked for my daughter and me when I was school-aged is spending part of recess or several days a week of recess helping the librarian. That social detox time didn’t spell more social engagement with peers, but as the presentation argues, no social engagements isn’t really a worry for girls. The library meant a far better school experience. No more meltdowns after that and then our peers viewed us as less weird.

  • So the control group was selected specifically because of their proactive social skills. Therefore you are comparing those with autism to the most developed of the neurotypicals that skews the results.

  • people with anxiety were the first who wanted to take furlough to stay at home and now they will want even more free time(of sick) to get better after lockdown? Wow, that make sense

  • Is increasing social engagement really the answer? Perhaps supporting self-understanding and self-acceptance of ones needs would be even more beneficial…

  • Before I found out the country I’m in (not my home country and very far from home) was locking down, I didn’t realise I could be so distressed that I tremble. I’ve settled down now and I’m not so much a mess.
    There’s a park with animals outside my house, right across the street, and it hurts to now be able to visit them anymore
