    Hiya hun, nice to see you here. Are you sure he's lying? Is it possible that what he perceives as being the truth is just a case of him misinterpretting the signals and signs and reading the situation wrong. I have two boys on the spectrum and one of them was labeled a liar by his school and it turned out that he was completely reading the situation wrong. As far as he was concerned he was telling the truth.
  • my daughter is autistic and lies, although i can normally tell when she is. she doesnt always lie it depends on the situation and how shes feels at the time.
