Hi everyone. I'm a 50 yr old mom of 3 boys. All are on the spectrum but all are very different. I am also on the spectrum I only discovered that by doing research for my middle son who is officially dx with Aspergers. He's 26 yrs old, holds a full time job for the last 4 years, my issue is I would like him to leave the nest. I think he is capable of living on his own but he shows NO interest on leaving. I want him to at least give it a go, I know he can do it but even talking about that subject he shuts down and covers his ears and runs in his room. I want him to be able to take care of himself if God forbid something happens to me. Am I wrong for wanting to to live on his own? He isn't very social but he works full time. But am I right to want him to do that? And how do I go about working with him.
