sounds like he may have one of the Autism Spectrum disorders.. it could be ADD or ADHD but you really need to have him seen by a specialist to be sure.

It sounds like he might benefit from a team based outdoor activity, that might both help him work through social issues he might be having trouble with and allow him an environment to positively use that energy. First time answering a question and I really hope their was something useful in here.

Take him to a dr a let the dr tell you what's wrong with your son. I wish I could help you but I'm not a dr and I don't think even if I was I couldn't diagnose anything through a question on here. Sorry but you need a dr not ask.com

it kinda sounds like he's a little bi-polar...but to be for sure have him checked out by a professional....his school should have him tested for learning problems as well.

I would definitely say aspergers since its a mild form of autism which explains the no eye contact yet he is not completely shut off. I would also say that it might not be a good idea to have people on ask.com diagnose your son.

I have a 10 yr old son with abt the same symptoms. He has aspergers. It's a type of autism. You should get him seen by a specialist. This will not go away.

If he's fixated on one particular thing and is brilliant in it, it could be aspergers. Your description described Autism. You should do a test to diagnose what is happening to your child.

Your son requires medical evaluation.
You, your family, and most importantly your son are unable to handle this without ongoing medical management.
Proper diagnosis and a good treatment plan will provide the path for his healthy future. You don't need to face this alone. The PCP will give you a referral to the appropriate specialist.

It sounds like Asperger's Syndrome. People with Aspergers typically have average or above average academic intelligence, but we lack socially. Asperger's Syndrome is a form of Autism. We have trouble understanding others such as body language, behaviors, social cues, and emotions. Often times someone with Aspergers will have trouble with eye contact, make repeated movements (typically hand flapping), or other behaviors connected to Autism. http://www.webmd.com/brain/autism/mental-health-aspergers-syndrome

If there's anything else you may want to know about Asperger's Syndrome, I'll be happy to answer any questions. You should discuss all of this with a Pediatrician or another physician to get a proper diagnosis.

It sounded most like aspergers. I think you would most benefit talking to a psychologist with your son. A psychologist can do the work necessary to see where and if your son falls in autism category. Some children can do quite well in the world with the proper help.

If he does fall in the autism spectrum, he might never be able to handle complex facial cues or a lot of touching. That's all right, because autistic children love their families and friends in their own unique ways.

On the off chance it isn't an autism spectrum disorder, a psychologist should be able to ferret that out as well. Some even work hand in hand with psychiatrists to make sure their patients receive the best of both worlds.

Most likely Aspergers or Autism. I once had a friend who never stopped talking about whatever he was interested in in that time period(mostly dinosaurs), never made many friends, MUST take apart Lego sets(he even messed up one of mine), moves kinda strangely, etc.

It sounds as if he has either Asperger Syndrome, autism, or Bipolar. This is a very serious matter that you should discuss with his physician.
