My son is 19 & graduated from high school. He doesn't want to do anything, go anywhere, sleep all day. He was taking one class at community college, & lied about being sick . Missed too many days. He has no friends. We sat down to talk about it, and it escalated & he became angry & struck his father several times. Seeing his counselor on Sunday. Takes anti- depressants. Has anime out there have any ideas? Suggestions? He's smart. No motivation. We live in West Texas & not much here , support. Help! Hopefully will be able to relocate in 1 and 1/2 years. I want to go where there are more options. I have 4 children on the spectrum. I have 2 at home.

Thank you for your prayers, your kindness, your words. I feel like I have no one to talk to. It's not the kind of thing , you want to shout to the world. We are seeing his counselor on Sunday & I've been on line looking for the closest helpful sources .

after reading your post I just wanted to share a prayer of hop and encouragement. I have no experience in this area but my heart went out to you and your family. I truly hope you find the resources you need. the only thing I would suggest is if you haven't already, check with your city's social services agency. where I am if our city doesn't offer the service then they must pay to transport the child to services each day. I don't know more than that but maybe it's worth looking into.
