I'm Ellie, and my eldest DS has just been diagnosed with Aspergers and ADHD.
He's always been different, at 15 months old, he was able to count to 5 without propting, by the age of 2 we could have full on conversations with him, and he was doing 56 piece jigsaws. He's now nearly 5, is able to do maths that an 8 year old was do, and his IT skills are that of an 11 year old. We have problems with his speech and behaviour (specifically struggling with any social interactions and eye contact) ... He's on an IEP at school (individual education plan) at the highest level.
Despite all his problems, he is the most beautiful and gorgeous little boy you could ever know :-)
