My fifteen year old stepson was tested and showed to be mentally retarded. He had just came to live with us full time and he had never been properly tested. We decided not to tell him what his testing results were just that he learned differently. He has started talking about whaat he would like to do after high school and I don't want to tell him that I don't think he can but, I don't think that he will be able to even live on his own. I am not sure how I should direct him without discouraging him.Any suggestions?
