Tick by tick, our ADHD/Aspie teenage-son “Clark Kent” checked off the hurdles between him and high school graduation/Texas A&M in the last two weeks of school. We breathed a sigh of relief when he announced he had passed his online classes and solved his attendance issues. Then, three days before his graduation, as his older sister Marie made graduation cakes for Clark and his girlfriend, I got a call from his counselor.
