I am in need of some advice or help or both. My 13 Y/o has Aspergers, he is my "Step"son (we don't use that word) Lately, He is running away after school,or anytime he has been left alone for more than 30 minutes.
He is VERY high functioning, and attends "regular" school. He does have it pretty rough there, bullying and teasing etc. The school is not doing much. to stop that because "it is his word against theirs" I am ready to take on the parents of the other children...LOL
There are charter schools in My and my husband's area that have a lot of kids with Asperger's and other learning disabilities. We just cannot convience his mother that this may be a better situation for him. We also have a VERY large homeschooling community in our area. Our son is very intelligent, he just does not turn in his homework.
Is running away common with Asperger's? If so What can we do to stop it or try to help him? we are all at a loss! Last night he didn't get home until WELL after dark.
Any advice would be appreciated....
