Definitely time to face it. It is no longer about dealing with schools and IEPs and speech and OT and so on. I am now looking at adulthood. My son is capable and smart. But, he can easily sit there and stare at the walls for hours if not constantly reminded to stay on subject. He takes no initiative for himself. He is ahead academically, but cannot seem to handle so much. He wants to be a computer programmer. Our community colleges here allow teens to enroll fulltime starting at 16, and take distance learning classes before that. My son is more than ready to start handle the course work of a community college course I am certain.
