Let's see... she's smart but not brilliant, but her parents tell her that she is. If she experiences the slightest hint of failure, she explodes. She is obviously indulged and given whatever she demands, as is evident in part by her weight. No one is denying her her snackies. She's not aggressive at home, because she's listened to given whatever she demands.  Since the parents are "100% sure she has Aspergers" without a diagnosis, they will not entertain that she is a little shiat in need of firm discipline. Not her fault, it's her Aspergers. No one listens to her at school. That's the problem.

I'm not sure why they bring up her IQ.  Maybe it's different in the UK, but in the US at least kids aren't expelled from school for being dumb.  Behavior issues on the other hand, which she seems to have, are grounds for removing a kid from the classroom.  If she does have some sort of autism disorder it's a shame, and an appropriate school setting should be found for her, but if she can't restrain herself from attacking teachers she has no place in the classroom with the other kids where her behavior will negatively impact their ability to learn.

You know that cartoon where Porky Pig is babysitting for a lady defense worker and the lady give Porky a book called (something like) "Successful Child Rearing." She tells Porky "If he gives you any trouble, just use the book" And then she flies off to work. Literally.

And the kid is a brat and Porky flips through the pages trying to find a solution. But nothing really works. When the lady gets home, she finds Porky exhausted and the kid being a brat. She says to Porky "Did you use the books?" Porky said he did but nothing worked. The lady says "You don't use the book that way. Use it this way" and she picks up the kids and starts beating him on the butt with the book.

Honest Bender: has an IQ of 130

Way to celebrate mediocrity.


Most scales set the mean IQ at 100 with a standard deviation of 15. 130 puts her on the borderline between two and three standard deviations: about the 95th percentile. This isn't genius material -that's typically put at the borderline between three and four deviations- but it's not too shabby at all.

That said, I'm not qualified to diagnose, but no way is this Asperger's. She's crossing lines that are not typical of that diagnosis: Asperger's kids can be awkward, even creepy, and sometimes they even make threats, but as a rule they are not actually dangerous. These repeated attacks on teachers suggest some very different diagnoses: ones that society does not look on nearly as kindly.

Seems like they need to take her to a specialist to receive a proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Might also help to pursue family therapy so she can learn better coping skills for her low distress tolerance/difficulty with emotion regulation, and the family needs to learn how to respond to her behavioral problems and to set rules and boundaries with her. Just making speculations about what's wrong isn't going to help her or the family :/

Despite the fact that the kid is clearly over-indulged by her parents, she likely does have legitimate issues that need to be addressed.

Unfortunately, if she's violently lashing out at teachers when she doesn't get her way, the school really doesn't have much of a choice other than to kick her out. They likely don't have the resources to deal with her problems and it would do more harm than good to all involved to keep her there.

Doesn't seem like aspergers to me, more like the beginnings of a personality disorder. But wtf do I know?

These repeated attacks on teachers suggest some very different diagnoses: ones that society does not look on nearly as kindly.

I have a GED in Psychology (from the same school some of y'all have your GED in Law from) and I'm gonna vote for Bipolar Disorder.  I think there's no shortage of kids whose behavioral issues stem from being treated like a preshus snoeflaek and could stand a lesson or two in the harsh realities of life--e.g. that not everyone is a winner and that life is not some sort of caucus-race in which "everyone has won, and all must have prizes".  I also think that some mental-health conditions are overdiagnosed and that psych medications are overprescribed as a result.  But this kid has something wrong with her brain chemistry and needs meds sooner rather than later, before her social and academic development are foreclosed by her behavioral issues to an extent that will preclude her having any sort of happy life.


I know you're being facetious, but most psychologists and psychiatrists wouldn't (and IMHO shouldn't unless they have a damn good reason, including SPECT/PET/fMRI scans etc) diagnose an 8 year old with early-onset bipolar affective disorder. Plus the outward expression of anger would indicate (unless she also has other mood swings) exclusively mixed states, and her rapid swing to becoming aggressive would make her ultra-ultra rapid (or radian) cycling. So I wouldn't go with bipolar, no.

Early medication for psychiatric (especially if we're talking psychotic) disorders can be a real mixed bag, especially since a huge range of them aren't approved for use with teenagers let alone adolescents.

so she's a smart brat who's parents let her get away with murder at home, and are then surprised when she acts like an ass outside the home.

So do we go with the new version

Veruca Salt the little brute
Has just gone down the garbage chute.
And she will meet as she decends, a rather different set of friends.
A rather different set of friends
A rather different set of friends.

A fishhead, for example, cut, this morning from a halibut.
An oyster from an oyster stew,
A steak that no one else would chew.
And lots of other things as well,
Each with it's rather horrid smell, horrid smell.
These are Veruca's new found friends
That she will meet as she descends.
These are Veruca's new found friends!

Who went and spoiled her, who indeed?
Who pandered to her every need?
Who turned her into such a brat?
Who are the culprits? Who did that?
The guilty ones, now this is sad,
Dear old mom and loving dad.


Or my favorite, the classic version because Gene Wilder

Oompa Loompa doompadee doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa Loompa doompadee dee
If you are wise you will listen to me
Who do you blame when your kid is a brat
Pampered and spoiled like a Siamese cat?
Blaming the kids is a lion of shame
You know exactly who's to blame:
The mother and the father!
Oompa Loompa doompadee dah
If you're not spoiled then you will go far
You will live in happiness too

It's also weird that it comes about from being ignored. Autism Spectrum Disorders are classified as sensory processing disorders and tend to be exacerbated by... well... senses. That is over-stimulation rather than not feeling like you're being paid enough attention.

That said, she could be further down (or up, can never remember) the scale in the spectrum than the parents think.

Just talking about that cartoon the other day. Warner Bros. Rules!

I do work with Multi-Handicapped children and Autistic/Aspbergers children, and they can be very scary smart, but have temper explosions that seemingly can't be controlled. However I will tell you that with the proper behaviour mods, explosions occur less and less frequently. But it takes time, and the cooperation of staff and parents.

That said, it could just be that she doesn't have limits at home, obviously not caloric limits! And if you look at her, there might be some fetal alcohol syndrome there too..and yeah, when you work with children who are not in the "contained classroom" range, you start seeing aspects everywhere!

Dr Dreidel: I used to work at a psych hospital, where I came across a child with a very similar problem.

A normal looking 8-10 y.o. child who could have pleasant and intelligent conversations...until they flew into random rages and started swinging fists, biting, kicking, clawing. Not pretty - I had to wear arm guards when working with the kid, and when mom visited (every day), she had to wear them too. What was really weird is that the kid didn't seem to be able to control it - eyes would well up with tears as blows rained down on us, and it really seemed like the kid'd get possessed every few minutes but still remain conscious as an observer.

Human brains are wired weird.


I've been doing all the paperwork and observing a case like this right now. Unfortunately the kid is now 13 so things are getting tougher. He's very smart....knows /everything/ about cartoons, even the artists that created cartoons from the 50's. He just goes into these tunnel-vision rages and cries. Like you said, it seems like he's just an observer. His parents have two other well behaved, successful kids and are at a loss. It sucks to watch.
