Help with suggestions and insight

My son was who is 4 yrs of age started with first really being into the alphabet. He could recite the complete alphabet by age 2. He now can count till 100 and can add and subtract. He can read words and sometimes small sentences. But in his school we are having issues. Because the teachers say that he is not very social and will not follow simple instructions. They want him to be assessed and have even suggested a special needs school for him. I am a single mom and they are making even the positive things about him worrisome for me. He is super affectionate, converses in both Hindi and English. He makes eye contact with family members but is extremely strongheaded and it is hard to make him listen. So that is something that is making it difficult for his teachers especially with the other children staying in line and following instructions. He is extremely bright, knows shapes, colors (both in Hindi and English). But is mainly into letters and numbers. I attended his field day today at school and he was into doing is own thing looking for the numbers and alphabets posted on the field for different teams and did not at all participate with his classmates in different games and activities.

I agree with your teachers. You need to get him assessed to know what direction to take for his education. He may not need a special needs school though so see what the tests say first.

My first thought from you describing him was possibly aspergers but I'm not a doctor so don't hold me to that.
