But while the settlement said Peter Lanza was responsible for paying the two sons’ college tuition and for providing ‘‘a car for their son Adam’’ — if Adam wanted one, and if Nancy Lanza paid for the insurance — Nancy Lanza was responsible for unreimbursed medical expenses. Those, the settlement said, included ‘‘hospital, optical, psychiatric, psychological and nursing expenses.’’
A mediator who worked with the couple told The Associated Press that they told her that Adam Lanza had received a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome.
Some details about Adam Lanza’s teenage years also emerged. Around the time the divorce was in the works, he attended Western Connecticut State University as a part-time student. He did not make much of an impression.
Prof. Renate Ludanyi, the director of the university’s German studies center, said that Lanza was a student in her class during spring 2009, according to her grade books. But she said her memories of him were faint.
‘'If at all I remember a quiet kid, a quiet young man sitting by the door,’’ she said.
Lanza dropped out of the class before the final grades were compiled. His grades until then had been ‘‘medium to not very good,’’ she said.
