The same way that you would talk to any other teenager about hetero-sexuality ~
(with or without aspergers sydrome)

And especially from a careers point of view b/c a teenager with aspergers already knows what it feels like to be scrutinized by people whose ignorance keeps them silent, but they're not considerate enough to stop staring.

This is from the MedHelp Glossary:
Outlook (Prognosis)
As with most developmental disorders, the long-term outcome and prognosis will vary according to the nature of the underlying problem and the interventions used to support continued development.
Recent studies have shown that a variety of treatment approaches can help improve social function. Because the patient may have average or above average intelligence, improvements in social function are particularly important.

This child has an exceptional opportunity to be in service to those they interact with!
What a gift! What a challenge....       Sign me ~ straight but not narrow.
