AS children are often misdiagnosed with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). They often demonstrate significant hyperactivity. It can be as a result of anxiety in social situations. AS can also co-exist with ADD.
P. was eligible to begin Kindergarten in the fall of ‘98. He would turn 5 in the fall of his K year. We received conflicting advise as to whether to send him or hold him back one year. Ultimately, we decided to send him. I think it was the right decision. Yes, he was immature in his social skills and advanced in his cognitive skills. But if we held him back 5 years, he would still have immature social skills in relation to his peers. He has learned a lot in the context of peer relationships in the school.
