Thanks a lot for replying back. Its getting so hard by the day to deal with peer rejection for my teen age sonin school. They just started their summer break and he can see photos of his class mates on social media hanging out which is making things more difficult for him. We are considering of pulling him out of the school and start online schooling where he doesnt have to go through this peer rejection at school every day . Can someone guide should we consider online schooling which might be a better choice or still encourage him to continue his physical school? In case he continues to be in the same school, he has to accept the fact that most of days he is going to be lonely. Is some one in similar situation ?

I have 15 year old son, who has struggled socially always. Through out his life he hardly had friends. Even if could make few friends , the friendship wouldn't last beyond few months. He had speech delay issue in childhood followed by learning difficulty and has low IQ. Still he manages his academics some how but the social part is what is taking a toll on us and him. There is constant peer rejection, other students find him bit weird and silly and immature.
Since childhood he is heavily supported by therapies and now he is seeing a clinical psychologist as well. But ever since he has entered teen age his frustration is shooting up because of constant peer rejection and this loneliness which is impacting his academics as he is hardly able to focus
Now we have finally decided to pull him out of school and start online schooling . This is his final year of grade 10 (IGCSE board).
Can some one guide me on how can i help my child to build some friendship online.
Also there any parent whose child has similar social issues. Can you please guide me what can help. Also can parents share their feedback on online schooling for children struggling socially.
