Aspergers and ADHD
In my son's case, eye contact has been almost physically painful since he was an infant. Therefore, it cannot be attitude nor an expression of esteem. The contact is too intense. I have had professional contact with three adults with the same issue. They've been off-the-chart smart but interaction with "normal" people is so erratic and unpredictable that it is too difficult for him to trust. That's why we had to take him out of school, forty randomly behaving students was just too painful to him. It was exhausting and draining to him. He was impossible by the time he came home.

I have no idea what he's going to be like when he becomes a teen. I just hope he doesn't discover sex before marriage (if he takes to it like Legos and trains) he could be facing charges!
