he gets very irritated over things such as noises when people chew, people giving wrong information, people touching his things. He gets very angry and anxious. He plays with clay to calm his nerves, even the teachers let him play with it during class so he can concentrate.
My son has excellent grades in school in all subjects incl. algebra and English.
He has always been socially behind. He never really had friends in early grades. This last year has been better. He now has a few friends incl. 1 boy he walks home with.
He has trouble answering loudly when asked a question. Sometimes he gets "stuck on stupid" and just stares at you if you are asking him something directly. This is especially true if he feels he's in trouble but this can even happen if somebody has simply asked him his name.
He has not been diagnosed with any disorder. His bio dad has severe OCD. I have him seeing a psychiatrist who is stumped as to a diagnosis too. He is trying him on an anti-psychotic but I don't see a difference in him.
Any ideas? Aspergers? Anything????????? Going ANON because people are rude today!
