Description

Our son was finally (re)diagnosed as High Functioning Autism (aspergers) after a hospital stay last year. He is very smart and capable, but lacks motivation. It's been a difficult year of transitions. In the fall he was trying to complete the work in school, with the supports of his IEP accommodations. That has faded out, and we have ruled out all possible issues preventing him from succeeding but himself.

Geometry is the biggest problem, because it's an online class. He is stuck on a module, having retaken is multiple times, but frustrated at being unable to coordinate technology with the online teacher, and unwilling to try again. The first dozen attempts, he would race through the questions, hoping for a pass. Then he started trying to figure out the problems he was having, but still not passing. Now he's frustrated and lost motivation. He is 40% behind for the year.

Our son is behind and failing most of his classes, in addition to Geometry, due to work refusal. He is fully capable of doing his work but says it's boring and he is uninterested in completing it. He gets good grades on most of his tests and quizes, that he decided to take, so he is learning the material, but just refusing to do the work. He has no motivation to do it, no matter what we say or do (but he responds well to other people).
