I'm good, thanks. The Kid is doing remote learning. He's got Asperger's and ADHD, but decided to quit taking the Concerta a couple months ago. He's extremely bright and a PITA, lol. Never shuts up. He got some special classes up to about 5th or 6th grade, they called them speech classes. And yes, he was hard to understand, still is a bit. But mostly they were teaching him stuff like take turns, don't interrupt, respect other people's things, etc.
Robert was first diagnosed w/ PDD then it went to aspergers then because of his "self care" it went to autism. Tics or turrets(spelling) ADD/ADHD , CDD (coordination developmental disorder) , seizures, (not active) Crohns and sever allergys.
He is a mimic so its important who he hangs with . He did a few months in special ed because Detroit didnt have anywhere else to put him and it did him good because it increased his social skills there. Everyone loved Robert .He was the only white boy in the whole school. He was bullied at all the other schools. He is almost savant in memory. ((99th %) Because of the CCD he has had PT and botox inj. in his calves . Walking on his tip toes for so many years caused his muscles to draw up.

Wow, you guys certainly had your hands full. :hugs It's confusing, our counselor recently told us Asperger's is different from autism, but some psychologists put Asperger's on the autism spectrum. The Kid does not want to believe he is autistic (rage!) but is okay with having Asperger's. Whatever works. I think he will be independent in any case. I'm hoping so. :fl
