Reading the various posts, makes we want to ask a question about my step-grandson. doctors havent seemed to give a accurate diagnosis, perhaps the people here can! he's now 8 years old-seems to be doing fair in school, despite the other boys never able to communicate with him. he lives in his own world a lot, when disiplined, he just rolls his eyes back and tunes his parents out. he says he feels as if he comes from a different world, and noone here understands him. all this despite the fact he is very bright, his immagination is always in overtime, teacher asked children to write about this city the could invent, including mayor, councilmen, police, etc. normal subject, right?except he made a city ran and controlled by robots!! i dont know as he is anti-social as much as he cant find anyone who can live in their immagination as he does. i'm sure this isnt much to go on--but does it sound familiar in any way?
