Brennen is 15. He's always scored academically high. For example, in 7th grade he was reading on a 12th grade level! But socially, he's much younger. Just guessing, maybe socially he's 10?

ds is 2 1/2 and ei assessment says receptive language is 8 months. he is nonverbal so expressive language is 5 months. but you throw him on his tablet and he goes to town like ones business! he is all over the charts.

My son is 4 but is at a 6 year level educationally.  Socially he is doing much better then when he was 3 years.  Pre-school is helping.
