Hello everyone I wasn't sure how to address this issue really. We are having difficuties with your 5 year old son. He is excelllent Behavior to our knowledge at school (He is in Full Day Kindergarten) just very jittery and hard for him to focus according to his teacher. He is at a Pre-K level at learning and so far has not been able to pass on subject in school with anything above a 63. At home we deal with tantrums all the time, the only time we can get him to focus on a task is if has to do with Helicopter or it is hands on. Examples of ways he will sit still Building Lego's (only thing he builds is HELICOPTERS), Building with Kenex (Building HELICOPTERS), Playing his Gamecube HELICOPTER game (another game will NOT keep his attention for more then 3 minutes), Playing his RC Helicopter Simulator on the PC or watching RC Helicopters Fly on YouTube. Sorry to go on and on I just wanted to make a point. His journals home from school all have pictures of Helicopters in them even if the subject that is wrote about is something totally Different. As far as socializing he is able to do so only with select people and it take a long time for him to get comfortable with them people. Basically the School told us they won't Fail him regardless of his grades so he will be passed on to first grade and there he is going to struggle even more. The school won't test him for any learning disability because they say he is to young and our Dr won't listen (we are going to be change Dr's for MANY reasons...mostly unrelated to this issue). So I am throwing the question out there do you see anything weird about this situation or his behaviors or am I just an over concerned mom?
-Another thing to mention would be that he didn't talk with the ability to under stand him very well at all to around age 4.
I am that way and have been since I was five but I found out I have asperger syndrome
