My boy has had the diagnosis of mildly developmentally delayed since he was 2. He is very behaved which is a blessing, but has a difficult time learning. Following verbal directions-even simple ones are very difficult for him.
Because he is so "behaved" I often feel he gets less attention than a child who picks fights or yells at their parents... Anyway, he has been in special classes since starting school . Now he's nine. I am just wondering if anyone has similar experience and when another similar child was able to leave home/drive.
