Maybe your special-needs teen does not lie, but is confabulation (i.e. fills in gaps in memory by fabrication). If s/he has problem with his/her short-term memory, s/he might not remember what happened, but the brain fills in the gaps. So s/he is not telling a lie, merely telling, what his/her brain THINKS happened.

If the problem is lack of short-term memory, the best thing is immediately after an incident to talk it over, so the brain does not make up things. Also, it is important not to tell the special-needs teen (or child), that what s/he is telling is not true, as it will impair his/her self-esteem.
