My son has been excepted to tests for one of these, iv known for years he was very different and was tested when he was 7 then again a year later and was told no but now secondary school have picked up on it saying it looks like high functioning aspergus, I felt so relieved and cried as I felt as though people thought I was an over anxious mum but I know my son and just new he was unique as I call him.

My son was diagnosed with Aspberger's. If your son has been tested, and there aren't the indictors, then it's not Aspberber's.

but, either way, my son knew that he still had the personal responsibility to take care of business. Its a struggle, but you still have to hold these kids accountable. You cannot simply rely (or allow him to rely) on a diagnosis that hasn't happened, and use it as an excuse.

Oh no I absolutely agree with you that it's not to be used as an excuse it would be very wrong to allow that.

Thay haven't actually diagnosed him but thay strongly suspect it is one of these and I'm told it can be left undiagnosed even to really late teens and as his mum iv tried the get a grip method and man up but it's many things he can't control

Schools cannot diagnose Aspberger's Syndrome.

If he's been tested, and the tests didn't show it, then I'd say that he needs to man up and be a responsible kid, and quit relying on a diagnosis that he does not have.

Every kid is special, and unique. They are all human beings!
