HiShonaCook, I could have written this myself. My son is 17 and having similar issues. School has just started and he is severely behind in most of classes already. No amount of prodding or nagging seems to help, as we all know. It makes me sad to see the stress on his face. Im also at wits end. Do I just let him fail, do I drag him across the finish line??? I have no answer either, but I can empathize with you and let you know you are not alone. I know how lonely it feels…. seems like everyone else’s neuro-typical kids go flying through school and its a big accomplishment when my son earns D 🙂
