    even though he obviously is on the margins. His psychiatrist thinks he's textbook ASD-1 or what they used to call Asperger's. Ds knows other ASD kids/adults and definitely notices that there is something different about them -- but doesn't see any similarities within himself. But now he's starting to ask "I just have ADHD, right? I'm not autistic, right?" and I don't know how to answer that.

      Remove the stigma. I cant tell you word for word, but one major point is that MOST people have some behaviors that would lead others to diagnose them as having X, Y or Z, when in fact, those others are only seeing this person under a certain circumstance (math class, for example) and never see them at other times, when the “undesirable” behaviors simply disappear. Also, autism is a spectrum. It can be extreme, where a person is not able to function on their own. It can be invisible to everyone, inc professionals. Start reading sites like CHADD and ADDitudes.com. Tons of helpful info and resources

      also areas that he feels he may need to improve. Perspective is key. Over the pandemic, I discovered Wholehearted School Counseling shop on TeachersPayTeachers website. Take a look at it. Some geared for younger kids for sure but check I am sure some of the information she posts will be relevant. This is not a "gold standard, research based program" but the kids I work with have really taken to it well. Supplemented with other types of therapeutic strategies/techniques. Good luck!

        and show him that some of his perceived weakness will end up being strengths in adulthood.

      likely ASD (kids at 13yo are no longer just "sensory" kids, but you probagly know that). If you project your own insecurities about having an ASD onto your kid, or if you shield him, it's not the right way about addressing his differences down the road.

      what finally gave us the diagnosis. And while the diagnosis doesn't change your kid, it made a BIG difference in how we were approaching medication. The prozac he had been taking for anxiety is actually activating for many spectrum kids, and once we got rid of it his irritability dropped enormously. We were able to better target medication support, and that made a very big impact.

      connected but when he is anxious it looks more spectrummy. Anyway, as to your question, ds has always been in school w kids who are on the spectrum but doesn't see himself as that way - we just always focus on his strengths and the support he needs individually. I am sure he thinks it sometimes but by 18 he is pretty comforable in who he is.

      that student's chosen field. At my univ, roughly 15% of students get support. In my department? 10%. In my classes? Half. In the classes taught by my friends in my department? Also about half. That sadly illustrates that what you want to know is not what a univ has but something about the culture in a department or field.
