I have been trying to get my 8yr old help since he was 4 and starting putting himself in timeouts. I had never heard of Aspergers until recently and really wish someone had said something a lot sooner. He still has not been diagnosed, however I am still fighting this. I have been told for years that I am just a bad mom and let him get away with everything. Now i have never believed that but it stills feel horrible to hear, especially from family and friends. If anyone can give me any advice I welcome it please. He is failing in school because he refuses to do any class work, and constantly says he is bored. They gave him an IEP however his teacher is fighting having to follow through with things for him and they won't switch his classroom. He is so incredibly smart and noone can see it because he won't do work to prove it. Help please.
