    One of my child has some of these symptoms, plaful,eazily distracted,infact his teacher has called me to he get scared at the sound or sudden appearances to the class. We have to teach him repeatedly before he understands, but the kind of questions he normally asked at times would suggest he should be brilliant.

Is four years old.He asked me of recent if I can buy another brother for him when his elder brother beat him so hard.Do you think .what do you think doc?
