The psychologist my son was taken to has said that he has some of the autistic behaviors and some that would possibly be considered Asperger's, but not enough to make a full diagnosis. I don't understand, especially since he's 16 and I have homeschooled for 13 of those years. I see what I see. He gets so frustrated and it seems like some days he is fully aware, other days he forgets the simplest things, can't seem to get organized at all, has no concept of what his behavior brings, so many things and no one seems to have any answers. After speaking to my counselor, she suggested Asperger's, but how can I get a good diagnosis? How can I find out if it is learning disabilities instead?
