Saw this board and thought I'd introduce myself.
I have a 17 yr old with aspergers, bi-polar and impulse control disorder.
We've faced many challenges over the years, right now my problem is educating him - he was unstable (bipolar issues) for a very long time and was unable to be attend school - it was just way to much for him to handle. I bought the books for him to study for his GED but getting him to actually work on them has been an issue - but I'll figure it out eventually. My biggest problem has been people's inability to understand his issues - just because he's 17 doesn't mean that he can be expected to be like every other 17 yr old - he's more like 9. Even my soon to be ex can't get it - he's conviced that my son is just spoiled and that is the only problem - drives me nuts.
Well not much of an intro - more like a whine session but :) I'm sure you all understand
