Grandmother of 3 grandsons whose father definitely has SPD

My main concern is my 15yo grandson. So far, I have been blaming it on the fact that he's 15yo. Sometimes I wonder what planet he's on! I just want to yell sometimes "earth to Malik"!!!He just doesn't think. He is a very picky eater. He wears clothes that cover him like hoodies in the summer!

The most shocking of all is he failed GYM! He makes NO effort in gym. He has no interest in anything except drawing. He refuses to have his picture taken most of the time except when I demanded he participate in my Christmas card last year.

He constantly fails to complete classwork and homework. This summer he is going to summer school for Math, English, and Gym! What can I do to help him?
