I was reading at a college level in fifth grade. I have Aspergers and ADHD. I was tested as having an IQ of 90 as a child. Is this possible, or MD?

I was reading at a college level in fifth grade. I have Aspergers and ADHD. I was tested as having an IQ of 90 as a child. Is this possible, or MD?

Reading & IQ: It is best for you to get tested by a clinical psychologist who specializes in learning disorders and Aspergers. Group IQ tests such as given in schools are ok but not nearly as accurate and detailed as a one-to-one w/a pro. Same goes for achievement tests. Whatever the numbers say, just work on being the best person you can be, like the rest of us. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I have 2 kids one has a major heart defect and has aspergers syndrome. My other was born 100% healthy.What are my odds of having another healthy baby?

It Depends: There may be more factors to consider before arriving at reasonably predictable odds. I suggest, you seek out a medical geneticist for your best answer. There are dna tests needed along with a precise history from both sides of the family; then the odds can be calculated. It would, in my opinion, be unethical to give you the answer you want without having much more data. Good luck. ...Read more
