Autism and Labor Issues

Homework station in the milking parlor.

I am sure you are wondering what is the relationship between Autism and Labor Issues? We are currently experiencing the “lack” of a reliable employee on our farm. Yes, we had a millennial age employee decide to just not show up for work. To be honest, we were given a heads up when she posted on her Facebook page that she was looking for a new job. So what does this have to do with our son with autism?

Our son is having some major problems with missing assignments (more than my fingers and toes). So while we need to milk the cows, we must also balance trying to get caught up in school and completing missing assignments. It is tough trying to balance both issues. I am doing my best and hope while getting the cows milked 3 nights a week I can also help my son develop a system to stay on top of homework and successfully navigate his way through Sophomore year.
