Special needs teen no friends and bored

My son has multiple diagnoses both congenital and mental health. He is aware that he has no friends and he is very lonely. He is homeschooled because the school district and I decided this would be in everyone's best interest because of the level of my son's aggression, defiance, and low grade level work. He was still able to associate with other children at church but when the new school year starts he will be too old to go to the kids classes. Our church does not have a special needs class. He was spending his time playing video games but his psychiatrist had us take them away permanently because of severe tantrums when having trouble with them. (We tried working on his aggression and anger for 7 years before the game ban was decided on.) Does anyone have any suggestions on activities? He is not able to ride a bike because of balance issues and he can't leave the yard unsupervised anyway because he wanders into other houses without permission. Right now all he has are movies and board games.

Thanks! Lisa
