I agree with the doc! It's become an convenient label. Most boys and girls have different learning patterns ( between the genders I mean) Most 6 year olds have the attention span of a gnat unless they're engaged in something they happen to love, you toss in an exceptionally bright child in the mix and there goes the standard curve again! Steven sounds like he is able to converse on a wide variety of topics that might not interest the typical 6 year old. Go with your gut instincts Dawn.
