I can hardly believe that difficult child 2 used to be a former easy child. Besides his late talking and late walking, he had no real symptoms of Asperger's. He had an obsession with dinosaurs but that was IT. In school he did great. His I believe second grade teacher called him her future engineer. He was super intelligent in damn near everything. Math, spelling, English, you name it. When he was tested he was in the 95th percentile for intelligence. . The **** didn't hit the fan till fourth grade. As the work became harder, his grades went down. He has a super hard time focusing and suddenly he is failing when he used to succeed. His hyper ness is outta control! We are all on spring break and instead of relaxing I am going CRAZY! Today, for example, he has been running around completely naked and jumping all over every thing! He jumps on the bed, he jumps all over me (while naked) which makes me totally uncomfortable. He hugs and kisses me real hard and climbs on top of me. He also does this with difficult child 1 and she gets Very offended. Tonight I finally convinced him to put on some pajama bottoms and he did it, much to my surprise. Usually he refuses to get dressed by himself and I have to do it for him. Again, this makes me tremendously uncomfortable but I do it. neuropsychologist that we visited wasn't sure if his symptoms were totally due to his autism or if it was an ADHD/Asperger's dual diagnosis. I am not sure either. He was started on Intuniv, a fairly new medication, a week and a half ago. So far, NO help. He goes up from two mgs to three mgs in a few days. So far it isn't working. He still can't focus in school and he is hyper as hell. I really don't know at this point if he really is ADHD or if it's just part of his Asperger's. I am actually hoping at this point that he has a dual diagnosis otherwise if it's just autism I know there are no medications out there to help it. Lord help us all because at this point I simply can't TAKE it.
