So difficult child 2 finally qualified for the IEP under autistic spectrum traits. Next year he will be getting school counseling, attending a social skills group, and having an RSP teacher help him with his work. So far I have not discussed his autistic diagnosis with him yet. When psychiatrist first diagnosed him with it, difficult child 2 was playing games on my phone and not really paying attention to what we were saying. Now that he will be getting all these special services I'm sure he is going to be wondering why. He doesn't even know that I attended an IEP meeting for him last week. He doesn't have a clue as to what it means. So my question is, do I finally tell him he has asperger's and if so, how do I explain it? I don't know if it's even necessary to tell him anything at this point, but sooner or later he needs to know. Should I wait until he starts asking questions, or should I tell him now?
