My 14, almost 15 yr old son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 12. My husband and I have struggled because he was also born completely deaf on his right ear. He was diagnosed during the pandemic and virtual learning was SO HARD for him!!! 2020 was the absolute worse!! Now, he is better, he's a Freshman in high school and doing really good!! I am the one with the patience, but sometimes it's hard to keep my cool but I do try. Most of the time I'm very patient. He'll come to me after his meltdown and apologizes to me for his behavior. But he will not do it for his father, even though I tell him it's important to also apologize to his father and show him respect. I believe he will eventually as he gets older.
