My son shows a classic behaviour of asperger which I have actually share in this forum for the past 1 year. Of course, I did not know the meaning of asperger then. Happily share jokes in "Kids says the darnest thing" thread and the locked gifted thread.
What u described seems to fit my ds too! I used to share the things that he said as jokes with others but come to think his words does demonstrate his inability to read between the lines.
Here is a recent example: His 3 year old brother is throwing a tantrum, insisting that his father "say sorry to him". The father said "I will use the cane to say sorry to u" and my 7 year old said "Why use cane? u got sore throat huh?"
EN wrote: Verbally he has no issues, just the need of him to share his knowledge on and on without noticing that his listener is not interested. He has no qualms in approaching adults and gives two cents worth of his thoughts.
His teacher has been complaining about him doing funny things in school.
He also like to share his tots and spend a lot of time analysing some very trivial matter. For example, when a family member is not coming home for dinner, he will list out all the possible reasons that he can think of for the absence.
but he can be quite sensitive at times. Just last week, when he finished the last story book borrowed from the library, he asked me to bring him to the library immediately. When I refused, he burst into tears.
Am I over worried? He seems to have some of the AS symptoms but I can't be sure.
