My son wants to get a job. Yes, this is true, he is about to turn 16. I am worried! I am afraid when he has issues, the people will just think he is a teen who doesn't make an effort. In reality, he does make an effort. He just does not get far with that effort. He needs habit in order to remember to do something. Plus, even though he really wants to relate to others, he does not always do a good job of that. Plus, his fine motor skills and processing skills are his biggest problems, so what if he is constantly being given orders or something and he cannot remember them long enough to do them? I also do not want to tell anyone about his special problems as I am worried about gossip (older teens tend to be the bosses of younger teens) and prejudice.
What do you think? BTW, my son is quite smart and comes off as such. Then people just think he is disobedient.
