Hello, finally my second post here! I'm on a roll. My 8 y.o. son was dx'd in Feb. with ADHD, anxiety, Aspergers, PDD.
I've read and heard numerous times that Aspies generally conserve energy and may not put their greatest effort into certain activities. This is true for my son. Anyone know why???
He has no desire to ride a bike, no desire to learn to swing by himself, he is taking Taekwondo and while he says he likes it and wants to keep doing it, it is a lot of work and doesn't put effort into his moves, forms, etc. Of course he hates writing, that is like pure torture to him . . .
Anyone else in the same boat? Thoughts?
