36:39 My Teenage son, with ASD and Anxiety, Struggles with Socializing

My 17 year old Asd son, with anxiety, struggles with socializing. He has a learning disability which adds to his struggles in trying to make sense of situations. I'm trying to get him out and about and bit by bit try to build his confidence. Social clubs are really difficult and he doesn't enjoy, he's constantly on edge. People are saying that I should make him go, how do I make him go to a situation that he finds so difficult? what are your thoughts on this?
