My 9 year old aspie has trouble putting his thoughts into coherent sentences, much less paragraphs. He can memorize facts but getting him to regurgitate them in any kind of logical order is a pain. So when I found out he has to write a research paper about Red Foxes...well, let's just say I wasn't happy.
We've been working on it for a week now (the rough draft is due friday) and looking at it you'd think he'd spent all of five minutes. Truth is, he isn't putting in much effort, but I know he's frustrated because this doesn't come easily for him. I don't want to write it for him, but at the same time I can't read what he has without cringing.
I was thinking about typing up the sentences he has written and cutting each one out individually then working with him to rearrange them. He won't want to do it, but I have no idea how else he'll get a passing grade (and he will flip out if he doesn't get a passing grade). Any ideas? Any mamas out there with older aspies who have tackled this problem?
