9yr old boy-
this is what he scored higher then usuall on- Atypicality, withdrawal, school problems, attention problems,- a littel over the 50 percent on depression and learning problems.
He has normal speech,good eye contact, gets decent grades (help w writing), does seem to not "comform" to most kids behaviour is age, and "spaces out" a lot according to the teachers. We have noticed that he seems to have a memory probem.Noticed it around age6. Says he gets bored easy, but is not hyper. If anyone has aclue what these results could mean please inform me. The school said basically to see a psychiatrist. Hes not "normal" like his classmates.Does not bully, does get teased occ he said, and has a couple of friends at school and home.

"memory" issues and spacing out, getting bored all sound a lot like Attention Deficit without hyper activity. What you just wrote could have been my grandson. He was just diagnosed in May. Feingold Diet seems to be helping a lot. We are medicating because he just couldn't focus on any behavior modification without it. He is doing much better now.

The memory with handwriting issue jumped out at me. My son has several learning disabilities - visual processing being one of them. Check out this website:
Maybe it will help you get some answers. It helped me a lot.
