Hi no not all children with Aspergers have a high IQ , there has been talk lately of taking Aspergers off the spectrum as a lot people think that you have to have a high IQ to have Aspergers x

Well I know having 2 son's with asberger's and ADHD that in general I high
IQ is associated with Aperger's and this is what a lot if doctors and Ocu[ational Therapist's
look far , but being on the Aperger's Spectrum these days is so Big i would consult your Doctor
thats where i started from both my 2 son's are about 1 to 2 years ahead at most things term wise.

I definatly would take this to a Doctor becasue the Spectrum is so big these days and growing being good at Maths is a good pointer to Aspergers struggling at english is one also. See you Doctor and good luck

Just wanted to add that struggling with school work does not always mean that they have a low iq, i have aspergers, and i struggled with school work at times, but it was because i didnt ask if i got stuck on something and then that meant that i kept falling behind on the next bit and the next bit, as i didnt understand the first bit, if you get what i mean.
