Ok. My step son is physically 11, mentally 9 and has the social skills of a 6 year old. He has not been diagnosed with any condition except emotionally delayment and has been in a special needs school for three years. Next fall he will be integrated into the regular school in the special ed classes.
Here is the thing: he is obsessed with become an astronaut and blowing up rockets. I think sending him to space camp will give him a good idea of what is involved as he has had only movies to go on. He hates to read & doesn't like math. The problem is that we cannot afford to stay in a nearby hotel for the 6 days in case of a problem & his lack of appropriate social skills have caused problems before. I think that space camp would be good for him, but I don't want him or anyone else to get hurt. If we are doing this we have to start saving now for summer. So what do you think? Delay this a year? or send him?
