GCSE Revision

    Hi,
    This is my first post. I was hoping someone could give me some strategies to help with getting my 16 year old son with PDA to revise for his upcoming GCSE's in a few weeks. He has no concept of time and when I suggest he do something he says he has to do it in his own time in his own way. However his own way entails reading general information from real books not text books or revision books he has been given. He has not been at school since end of Yr 9 (due to anxiety, depression and recent diagnosis of ASD/PDA), won't have home tutors, won't have tutors in a safe, neutral environment. We have explored all options. He wants to take his (reduced amount) GCSE's and he is clever and very good at digesting and analysing information but I cannot get it through to him he needs to look at specific facts that are on the syllabus versus general information about a topic. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas or strategies I could use to get him on board.
