Help! What can I do to keep inattention, anger, or anxiety from ruining a friendship?

 
For anyone with ADHD, autism, or another learning disability, inattention and impulsiveness can make it difficult to pick up on the social nuances that are the key to fitting in and making friends. During this talk, you’ll learn the common mistakes people make that cause them to get angry or anxious with peers. You’ll also learn the right things to focus on to build a positive emotional connection with others. Conversation isn't an optional skill in life. Learn how to master it.
