I know this isnt exactly related to learning challenges but I do believe that there are some important correlations. I would love some feedback from parents with teenage boys on the following: my son is 15, very bright, very athletic yet struggles extensively academically and on the field. I have long suspected aspergers or some variation on a continuum disorder. He is definitely lacking in the executive function department. (we consulted the schools over the years and were brushed off; consulted a psychologist with little of value) I guess I am hoping to learn more about brain development variability as a possible factor. He is so clueless and disconnected about basic things that sometimes we wonder if something is wrong with him. Just for reference, tests very highly since he was a little kid on standardized tests like ERB, whipsee (?), ISEE, and most recently SSAT. Is it possible for a boy (now 15) to be so immature as to have an impact on grades and other activities.
