My son is 20. Dx in second grade. We explained the dx to him but focused on his strengths as he grew up. Did not discuss his dx much at all and when it did come up he did not agree. Him not having Asperger’s has been validated by his dad and sister. Neither of them accepted the diagnosis. Because of his believe that he has typical neurology he will not accept any outside help at all. Won’t advocate for himself in a work environment or with peers. If I bring up solutions he triple checks that I’m not suggesting because I think he’s autistic. Has anyone else experienced this with their child?
