What is your opinion on this???? What does this mean to you???
I believe my son falls into this catagory. And was wondering if anyone else had kids who are similar.
My ds 12 is very literal. He doesnt get sarcasm at all. I usually have to explain it to him. Everything has to be just so. He is a very routine sort of kid. You can disrupt his routine if you give him proper notice and he can be real go with the flow if he knows in advance. He has obsessions but they change. For 3 years it was professional sports now its computer games and technology.
As a young child he never used imaginitive play at all. He never played pretend never played with action figures always focused on one particular thing. In early elementary school kids thought he was different and didnt include him in activities..
Now at 12 with the assistance of the school he is doing fantastic he is no longer so socially awkward(still a little) he has the maturity of a 9 year old (I am guessing) and he is accepted by his peers and team mates. Its been a long road but we are improving and I continue to hope to do so.
He is the most loving and fun kid when he wants to be and is friendly and helpful and well mannered and in general wonderful to be around.....
Just wondering if anyone else has a child like this?
