Just starting to think my gifted son who is "failing to launch" since leaving home at 18 actually has Asperger's. Lots to adjust to!

I was told he left the state. If he does support himself, it is through computer consulting. He burned a lot of bridges so I really don't know. He was couch surfing last I heard.

Nice idea, he is a gourmet chef. I wonder if he might be interested in organic gardening though. He did that as a kid and sold, with the help of internet, heirloom veggies. And raised chickens. He keeps saying he just wants to get away and move to Alaska.....for years now. I think he needs structure....his own if he can or someone else's.

He has shut me out for over a year now. Not sure how to get any communication going.
He might be relieved to diagnosed or discouraged. Don't really know.

He couldn't handle a classroom setting and I home schooled him thru 8th grade then found an alternate high school. We went to an alternate college but dropped out, bored he said. Thanks for your input.

Well not there is not much to be done. If he went thru school without a diagnosis, he must be high functioning. Maybe community college for a year or two?
