I have a 15yr old boy who was diagnosed with Asberger's syndrom when he was 13. I home schooled him until the 9th grade. This year was his first year in high school. He was doing real well up until a couple of months ago. He hates getting up in the morning, but it has gotten worse. He now refuses to go to school on some occations. He is only allowed to miss 16 days out of the school year and he's already missed 13. I really don't think that this problem stems from his asberger's..At one point he got so bad one morning that The law was called in, and he was taken to school in handcuffs. I was told the next step would be juvie. I don't want him to go there but I don't know what else to do. He has been to a counsler to no avail. All they wanted to do was dope him up...it only made the problem worse. He won't talk to anyone, and the only thing we can get out of him is that he hates getting up, when he does speak. At this point, he doesn't have anything left in his room but a bed, everything else has been taken away. I'm at my wits end, he believes that the problem is not his fault, it's because we don't get him up in time. He has even called 911 on me, because I dumped water on him one morning to get him out of the bed....it was my last resort..I had warned him, but he stated that I could not do anything to him....so I did it. Help...I'm out of options..I know I probably sound like an awful mother, but sometimes I wish he was 17 so he could leave. I never thought I would feel this way about my child, but I do.
