I have a child with Asperger's syndrome, who had some of the same symptoms. You might try reading Dr. Tony Attwood's book, Asperger's Syndrome, a guide for parents and professionals. It may help, it may not. Also, the Autism Society of America has it's own website, you might also contact Autism Research Institute, they also have a website. The addresses are eluding me now, but you can usually pull them up with most search engines. Good luck!
