I am mentoring an Aspergers Syndrome lad

I have formally taken on a mentoring role for a young lad with Aspergers Syndrome. He turns 18 in 2 days time.
I am looking forward to learning a lot from him as I also pass on a lot. He has a number of difficulties relating to the Aspergers, but these can be overcome through recognising them, and then creating some habits and some actions that can be used to overcome them.
Today we had the first session where we set the expectations and anticipated results for the two of us and then worked towards setting some basic goals for the next fortnight. He has created a blog and will be using that for keeping a journal of his progress.
