My son has recently been diagnosed with Aspergers. He also has severe ADHD. We had an awesome summer. I didnt medicate him at all. Well school is back in session and its a whole new world. He's 7 and in 2nd grade. He also has a very high IQ. They did testing to see where he was in math and english, and he's at a 4th grade level. The problem is he lacks socially. He has some little quirks that he does with his fingers and he takes everything so literally. Needless to say, the kids his age dont understand him.
Well since school started, he has become very defiant and talks back about everything. He seems to have no regard for anyone else and its getting worse by the day. I am hoping to find someone who has suggestions on how to deal with him and to help him. We do have an appt with a psychiatrist in 2 weeks to possibly talk about medication, something that I really dont want to do again. Any Advice is very much appreciated.
