So I have been having issues with Cherise for such a long time. We have talked soo much about what may be the cause of how she is.
Well I think we may know some of her problem. Jessie said to look in to the symptoms for Asperger's syndrome. I have looked up somethings and I think we may be on to something here. Here are the symptoms that I know she has.

Compared with classic autism, children with Asperger's Syndrome usually don't show any signs of major cognitive difficulties — their IQ falls in the normal or even superior range—and they exhibit few, if any, delays in speaking. They also generally hit most of their milestones within reasonable time periods. Because of this, some describe children with this condition as “high-functioning” or as having a “mild” form of autism, at least compared to others on the spectrum. To many, they may seem just like other children but not quite — socially awkward in a manner that's not easily understood.

Be preoccupied with only one or few interests, which he or she may be very knowledgeable about. Many children with Asperger's syndrome are overly interested in parts of a whole or in unusual activities, such as doing intricate jigsaw puzzles, designing houses, drawing highly detailed scenes, or astronomy.2

Talk a lot, usually about a favorite subject. One-sided conversations are common. Internal thoughts are often verbalized

Have heightened sensitivity and become overstimulated by loud noises, lights, or strong tastes or textures.

Socially inappropriate behavior


My goal for this next week is to get her in somewhere to get tested and to see if we can help her.
