Is his teacher worried? Have you talked to him about it? Do you think he has a desire to be more connected? I would recommend asking him how he feels about his friend moving... does he feel lonely? Let him know he can talk to you about any thoughts or feelings he may have. Ask him if he is happy spending a most of his free time by himself or if he sometimes wishes to he would spend more time with his peers. If so, ask him what’s stopping him from doing so. Is he afraid of reflection? Does he not feel connected? Is he shy?
I think the key thing here is to find out if he is happy with the way things are and if he is not, there are so many ways you as a parent can help him with this. And I wouldn’t hesitate to give counseling a try if he feels that he is unhappy and needs help forming and maintaining friendships. Good luc! I too am a mom with a son who has struggled socially. Keeping an open line of communication between us and and making sure he is comfortable talking to me about anything has been a blessing.
