That little boys sounds alot like my oldest girl. Minus the allergies and asthma. She is something else. I have to ensure I engage her whole mind in what she is reading and leaning in history. Though she will do math and science all day long!

Nice! Dh was diagnosed with adhd as teen, actually self diagnosed himself and then they diagnosed him later. My oldest ds is very similar. Anyways, this is very encouraging and a reminder why I homeschool.

I loved what one commenter said, "Its a trait, not a condition". Exactly. I have a child like this too. Its the way God made him, not a disability to be treated.

I have Asperger's (diagnosed as an adult) and my experience in public school is the major reason that I decided to homeschool.

Both my daughters homeschooled.  But my oldest daughter did not begin until her son was in third grade.  I showed her this article, and she said, "it is like she is telling our story."   Stephen (my oldest grandson) is a hands on learner, and is grown now.  It is interesting to hear him tell how he thought something was wrong with him.  He says that it took awhile of homeschooling to figure out it was not him. 

I see this all the time as a tutor, and it is really sad  what it does to the kids to be forced to learn with a method that is not suited for them.  .
