I'm worried - He's not like other kids.

Yesterday , I left him alone for a minute and he disassembled the tv , our clock , and the stereo.

Thats perfectly normal , kids take things apart.

The part that worries me is that he used the components to build a ham radio set.

Oh dear. Normally I'd want to run an EEG on him , but the machine isn't working.


Its worse than I feared.

What is it ?

I'm afraid your son has - 'The Knack'

'The Knack' is a rare condition -

- characterized by an extreme intuition about all things mechanical and electrical --
-- and other social ineptitude.

Can he lead a normal life ?

No , , he will be an engineer !
