Van tells me that he is doing better in his classes, thanks to my suggestions!
Last Sunday he had two assignments left to do, one in math and one in Macroeconomics. When he got home from work, he planned on completing the math quiz first, as it would take about twenty minutes. He then said he’d take a short break before answering one discussion question on what we used to call Blackboard.
Today is the first time I’ve been able to talk to him for a while.
Van is pleased to say that he’s now passing both classes!
He now schedules study time, interspersed with no more than five-minute breaks.
He only has two assignments to complete today. Neither are late! He’s quite proud of the fact that he’s now turning in assignments on a timely basis.
He also shared that his grades, in both classes, have greatly improved.
I didn’t expect verbal thanks as that’s something that many high-functioning autistic individuals struggle with, but his pride was sufficient!
