Disorganized thinking? Or Processing Disorder?
Can anyone describe what disorganized thinking really is? My son has some problems in school and the Psychiatrist thinks it may be disorganized thinking and is looking at a schizoaffective disorder. We just don't see this. His couselor is convinced that he has mild asperger's, although the specialist does not think he has enough communication issues for that.
He does not have any clanging, loose association or any of the other terms that I see associated with thought disorders or unusual ideas. Maybe thought blocking?
What he does is in school, he seems to have problems "wrapping his mind around" things. He sometimes loses his train of thought and pauses. He seems to have trouble concentrating. His teacher say he can be "spacey" and daydreams a lot. It does not seem that he merely has trouble with a concept, but more in processing. He describes it as trying to get something, but just can't get his mind to cooperate.
Is that disorganized thinking? Anyone with schizoaffective, doe this sound like your experience?
