Rule Following Considerations
Ability to Handle Social Cues
When in doubt over whether your teen with Asperger Syndrome (ASD) should get a driver's license, start with driving in a small geographic area. Train your teen with how to use a GPS, which can eliminate a lot of the uncertainty that can bring about a meltdown or unsafe driving. You may even be able to find a local medical center that offers driving readiness testing. Remember: If you decide that your teen should not be driving, that's OK!
