Q:

How can I help my son focus on his studies instead of music?  Is this Asperger?

My son seems to be exhibiting characteristcs of Asperger's Syndrome. He is focused on his music. When I can get him to study other areas he does very well. He is very knowledgeable in these areas but does not perform in classroom settings instead he sits in class and "zones out" while drumming on his desk, chewing his tongue and humming out loud.
What can I do to get him to focus on his studies in class and at home?

Hi there,

If you are concerned about your son and want to learn more about Asperger's Syndrome this article might help: http://www.education.com/reference/article/Ref_Asperger_Short/

However, it is probably be best to talk to your child's doctor if you are concerned, as only a professional can determine if your child may have this disorder.

Also, to try some new ways to motivate your son, maybe take a look at this:http://www.education.com/topic/child-motivation-achievement/

Hope this helps,

Liking music and "zoning out" in class sounds pretty normal to me. Is there some other important piece of information you have left out?
