I'm tired of people calling my son high functioning. Yes he is higher than some kids but he is way lower than a kid you would label high functioning. Even his DX says moderate. He is smart but he is so locked inside himself. He cannot be reasoned with or bribed. He does not recognize facial expressions or tone of voice. It takes him a year or more to learn a skill or behavior. That does not make him high functioning!!
