Aspergers and gaming
I'm a parent of a son with aspergers. He is 21 and into gaming in a big way. He'll stay up until 6 in the morning playing and then sleep all day. He failed exams at college, but with a lot of help from college advisors he managed to get into university. His first year was a foundation course, leading to a 2yr degree course in his chosen subject. Unfortunately he only passed 1 module out of 8 of the foundation course, because he was too busy gaming to do his coursework. He says he's tried to get on another course, but says he hasn't heard anything. He says he'll get a job, but has done nothing about it. He argues and then slams off into his bedroom if you try to talk to him. We, as his disabled parents are at the end of our tether and need help. Is there anyone out there who can give us any help please. Sue
