Well... while I'm waiting for the psychoeval in September, I've asked for a speech evaluation referral which has just been granted. Yeah! He was an early talker (would speek in sentences by 12months old). I would you to joke that difficult child could speak before his older brother! But as he grows older, it is becoming more apparent that he does not seem to understand what is said around him. Even his brother has noticed and ask the other day "why don't you understand stuff???!!!". It has both husband and I quite puzzled because he is so verbal. But it is often completly off topic or has no logicical link (at least to us). I started reading about Asperger's and he does fit the criteria pretty good except for a few things: his tone of voice is not weird (although can be way to loud than necessary) and he is not obsessed by one topic. He likes vehicles but I think it is within normal. Has any of your kids been tested for comprehension issues while being very verbal and therefor kind of "fooling" everyone unless paying close attention?
