My son is. 17. His whole life he has been diagnosed with ADHD and after taking him off his medications, the autism symptoms came out loud and clear. He isn't accepting it and is angry with me for not letting him get a drivers license. Any way of making him understand this diagnoses? He has a normal IQ but his social skills and lack of understanding of the way the world works is extremely low. No money concept, lacks understanding facial expressions and sarcasm. Any advise on how I can help him to accept this and get him the help he needs?
