Help! My 19 year old Daughter was diagnosed with Autism last year. She is currently in her last year of high school(homeschooled since 6th grade). She is on her last two classes and I am trying to go at her pace. My husband, I feel, isn't very supportive, although loves her dearly. Her diagnosis is like the elephant in the room. I don't feel like I can talk about the different challenges she has and is facing(along with social anxiety, which is what the child development center diagnosed her at 14. They said she didn"t have Autism.)He keeps asking me when she is going to finish school and she told me recently that she has decided she isn't ready to graduate. Technically, in public school, she would be able to be in school til 21 if she needed to be. I guess my question is how do I handle this? Should I give her more time ? Thanks in advance,
