I don't want to intrude here but this is the first time I've seen this board and I have a question --ok, maybe a couple but I'll start with the obvious one-- what exactly is asperger's syndrome? My SIL was told that her son, who's 7, has this but whenever DH or I ask her or MIL about it, we get hush-hush and very short answers. And mainly they say things like, "you see how he's moving his hands? That's it" Okay, to me "that" just looks like a kid who's excited, nothing harmful. And other things they mention just seem to me like a kid acting out against authority and the dissolution of his parents marriage. In other words, they just seem to me like "attention getters".
Again, I don't want to be intruding but I genuinely would like to know as would my DH. His family never tells him anything until after the fact as well as seeming to make mountains out of mole-hills and he doesn't want to see this child be put thru tests and stuff unless it's really necessary.
Thanks in advance for your patience,
