What's wrong with him?
Posted by kim on 7/26/2004, 10:20 am
I'm worried about my nephew who is 17 and cannot drive. He gets lost going home. He has to follow specific directions and can't just know where he's going. When he was three and four he talked very monitone and could memorize an enormous number of dinasaur names and things a normal child couldn't or wouldn't want to even try to remember. He can recite and memorize well but has trouble reading people and getting what they are expressing. Mom and Dad aren't willing doing anything like taking him for testing. What can I suggest--he's 17 and a really sweet boy with potential and I don't know what resources I could suggest.
