she is in college now she graduated at 14 and im not kidding when she was 10 months old she started reading and doing kindergarten math when she was 3 she had the math and vocabulary equivalent to a 3rd grader and thats the age where started walking and she always had poor motor skills when she was in 3rd grade she read neurology books she asked me to buy them for her and i told her they are boring and she wont understand them but in one day she memorized all 45 brain regions and stated them to me such as the prefrontal cortex and the frontal lobe and i asked her how she memorized quickly and she said everybody can do it and i said i cant and im 48 when she was in 4th grade she studied neurology and oncology relationships such as seizures due to brain tumor she used advanced cancer vocabulary such as metastasis carcinoma sarcoma she would tell me the specific genes and she claimed she has the cure for cancer by targeting the genes to express malformation of cancer cells we were recommended to get her evaluated but the entire time she refused to speak to the professional and i thought why does she need to be evaluated she is very smart when she was in 6th grade she started getting repetitive hand movements she diagnosed herself and she told me to take her to a neurologist she was correct about the diagnosis she even told the neurologist how to treat her with some chemical therapy the neurologist said she had aspergers but i didnt know what that is and thought she had nothing she did her older brothers medicine homework he was in college and she told him what to write due to her poor handwriting but she would get stressed out in school and refused to do her own homework her teachers let that pass because she could learn without and was the best student in the class she refused to eat dinner and spend time with the family which i was told was normal tween/teen behavior and it will eventually pass and to take her laptop she used to gain knowledge out of her room and not let her use it and she went back to the books i took those away also and forced her to participate in family activities and she was very anxious, never made eye contact and wasnt as enthusiastic she asked how can we do this instead of engage in something with productivity and i said how is this not productive she said she would rather learn i gave up gave her back her laptop and let her do what she wants she skipped a few grades and graduated she hates history and prefers to do biological science in humans she never made friends in college and she said it was to easy for her she would rather go to university of texas md anderson cancer center and do some lab experiments i went to a psychologist for my other daughter and told her this and she said this daughter may have aspergers and she explained me what aspergers is and i did research on this disorder and i realized she does have it i want to get her tested but she said she "will not utilize pulmonary pressure provided by the lungs which creates phonation in the glottis in the larynx that is then modified by the vocal tract into different vowels and consonants" and i had her repeat it and i wrote it down did research and saw that meant speaking I forced her to go to a neurologist and she did not speak the entire time my question is HOW CAN I GET HER TO SPEAK?????? my husband said to leave her alone my other daughter who went to the psychologist has a bad attitude she wanted $500 pair of genes and a $3000 jacket is not appreciative doesnt help out she thinks we live in garbage and says the cheaper things are the uglier they are while the aspergers daughter doesn’t care about her appearance so much and tells the spoiled daughter why does she need expensive things
