Hi. My name is Michelle and I have a high functioning 23 year old son who has not yet been formally diagnosed with Aspergers/Autism, but he has all 5 of the traits as listed in the DSM V. He was never identified as being on the spectrum in school. It's my opinion that he passed under their radar because he became adept at masking and compensating for his social problems. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can encourage him to work on himself so he can get better at adulting? His Dad and I are in our 50's and I'm concerned because we aren't always going to be around/able to make sure he does ok. I want him to learn to be as self-sufficient as possible. Thanks for listening, and for any information you can pass on to me. Michelle
