*tantrums lasting over 20 min over seemingly small triggers (making choices/transitions)
*lining up cars and books for hours on end
*not getting 'into things' was always where I left him
*not interacting with other children or acknowledging their presents at age 2.5
*Constancy in trouble in Pre-K for not interacting well with others
*stressed out by group activities such as soccer, gymnastics and karate ( tried all 3 between ages 3-5)
*unable to make smooth transitions form one activity to another with out ample warning
*extremely defiant behavior
*delayed motor skills
all of this was noticed between age 2 and 5.5 when we finally got a diagnosis.
My daughter is being evaled for Asperger's this week. The school wants to label her as 'Serverly Emotionally Disturbed' so you can probably guess at some of her symptoms. Others are an obsession with things being cold, hating loud noises, etc
my daughter is still being evaluated its been months but we are getting closer to the diagnosis. her big thing is bugs from teh tim she wakes up till she goes to sleep. she gets very upset when plans change, things have to be in a certain way, she like to be by herself however she like to play with a few kids who want to do what she wants to do which is bugs, she has a few facial ticks, she has imaginary friends she talks in third peson alot and she has a great memory she can alreay write and read she isnt even 5 yet
