As one of these people, I would have liked to tell my parents to let me do what I wanted to do, and nurture the skills that I had. They fought my aspergers/add/whatever with medications. Horrible years of my life, those...
Are you or his mother musically inclined? Go buy him a 100 dollar guitar. Show him some videos on youtube. Does he like to take things apart? Take him to somewhere that used to be like radio shack.

But at what point do we become like mexicans *in mexico* who know how to fix everything they need to live? Broken pipe? Dig it up and fix it. Broken car? Take it apart as least as much as possible and fix it. Need to build an extra room or two on your house? Pick up a hammer and some supplies and get to work.
