I think it’s wonderful that you apologized for the accusation and not trusting him, and that you worked together to come up with a solution with him doing his part.
Providing resources is not enabling him to be lazy or not do the work, it’s enabling him to be accountable and succeed, despite having a disability.
I think this deserves a celebration. You’re being the support, but expecting him to use it and turn it into a positive.
