I have suspected for a few years now that my son has a form of high functioning Aspergers.

Hi, I think I responded to your similar post on the kindy board, but in so many ways you could have described my 7 year old. We don't have a diagnosis but there are times I suspect aspergers. I've been dismissed before, but my friend's husband has it and sometimes some things just scream it, but then other things don't apply. Socially making friends he is fine but his intereactions sometimes make me wonder. Then again today following a meltdown at the school yard I was looking again and makes me wonder again.

Anyway, no real advise, but kind of in the same place, starting to wonder if there is something we are missing and could this be it. Anyway Liam has always been immature, he is a July baby, some of that has changed as he has gotten older and also as we have addressed his other issues (motor skills and ADHD) but some have resurfaced. best advice listen to your gut and don't give up until you get an answer that silences any doubts
