i have a beautiful 6 year old boy , but im not going to lie hes been a handful since he was born , he was a dreadful toddler , who screamed for hours at the slightest thing , he has got a lot better but can still cry at the drop of a hat and get very anxious over things.
He has trouble socialising at school , and has been in trouble for being aggressive , he is two years above his reading level and is acedemically where he should be .
He is also very good with his hands and can build lego structures with ease , he did a 187 piece one the other day in a few hours with no help.
he also has a thing about clothes , i bought him a harry potter lego t shirt and he promptly threw it in the bin declaring im not wearing that i hate harry potter ! its the same with shoes , he would rather wear an old holey pair than new ones .
another thing he has recently started is being rude or saying what he wants to complete strangers , the other day he told an old lady to stop staring at him , when i said thats rude he looked at me blankly and said but mum she was ...he also told a child in the park quite loudly oy you move , the mum looked at me crossly , i made him say sorry when i asked why he said that he said he was in my way mum :/
i could go on more as there have been many incidents , he has been referred at school but it never really came to anything and ive took him doctors but again got no where , what do i do ? hes a lovely warmhearted little boy and if he has got aspergers it wont change anything but will help us all understand his funny little ways and how to handle them better many thanks kirstie
