13 Year Old Starting College Plus Prep Program

by Sonya Koch
(Ottsville, Pa. USA)

My son walked well by 9 months and negotiated a battery operated car around trees and other obsticles without any problems at the age of 13 months. He learned how to read at the age of 4 and could put puzzles together at a very early age. He is now starting online college prep classes and should be able to graduate high school with an associates or masters degree. On the flip side, he has trouble answering to authority, seems to be annoying to other people with his actions, talks too loudly, doesn't have a sensor about the things and people around him and is very senstitive to certain issues. It's been a ride parenting him, especially since we haven't medicated him. We love him to pieces! He is a great kid!
