I have a 14 year old son with Aspergers and you would never know it! He is super bright, doing really well and working with him 24/7 on everything from reading to personal care has so paid off. I started with old silent movies so he could see facial expressions and gestures, introduced talkies with laurel and Hardy so he got to see fun and dynamics of friendship, clever versus dump and so on untill I worked him up to more characters with bigger story lines and all the time he was learning something new, emotions and interactions. Today I have a very talented boy, confident and funny in a drama school and he's shot two short movies already. Did I mention he has OCD ADHD and was severely Dyslexic? find his strengths...play to them, don't listen to nay-sayers...what you the parent put in is what you get back. When hormones kick in this can be a very tuff time for you both hang on in there Mom, it's his first time being a teenager who already has a lot to contend with...it will pass. hope this helps, love and light, Edel
