Want to be the best step mom to a teenager with aspergers.

Want to be the best step mom to a teenager with aspergers. He is extremely book smart. He is kind and extremely moved to help others. I want to help him with being able to make friendships. I don’t know if it’s aspergers but he is a bit of a know it all. I am not saying this with any ill will in my heart - heck that could be because he is a teenager. I want to hear from others on what I can do to lead him in the right direction and help him have a fulfilling life. I want to just help him with tools, positivity and love. I am tired of seeing him not having relationships or being bullied. He takes it better than most, but he should not have to! Suggestions please!

You are right about my level and his level but am I wrong to think he can build on his social skills?
He made a 30 on his ACT test the very first time and we have what college he is going to and for what degree - is there something else that will help him?

Is he good with mathematics and English writing for college ?? Those were my problems areas. I was terrible at English speaking and Communicating. Satistics was fun but I had class over lapping another class which I failed. Best regards for him.

@randy1cas Is he content with his social life, or lack of? I would try to be more social and hated it and it never got easier with practice. I kept trying because that was what was normal. I finally am happy because I am accepting that I really do not want a social life. Find our what HE wants and help him attain it.
